Parking lot's closed for tractor-driving teens

Students of Freedom Area High School will be entering summer with bitter memories as school ends for another year. Traditionally, attendants from the more rural areas drive their tractors from home to school on the last day. But according to sib site Blogging Baby, the city of New Sewickley, Pennsylvania is striking down the tradition by enforcing, for the first time in memory, that "implements of husbandry" such as tractors can only be driven on farms and not regular roads. The reason? Complaints from drivers passing through New Sewickley to work in nearby Cransberry Township. We at Autoblog have to scratch our heads, considering the tradition occurs only once a year. Let the kids drive their tractors, for Pete's sake!
