i got my car when i was 17... the only accident i got in was when a motorcyclist drove on the wrong side of the road & hit me ... everyone's okay.Thats why giving 17 year old kids fast cars should be against the law....
Tru tru! No, none of it was OK at all. All of those things caused the accident to happen more then him being only 17. But him being 17 may have contributed to him doing those things. Most adults would likely have more sense than to get drunk then run a stop sign at 60mph! I think most people in general would have more sense than that I guess! I dont know where im going here... LOL!!that moment on his life changed forever...

nick, giving fast cars to IDIOTS is a bad idea
and by the way, would that have happened if he wasnt drunk?
it IS illegal to give alcohol to a minor
it IS against the law to be drunk & driving
and it IS against the law to run a stop sign
and it IS against the law to be doing 60 in an area where school buses frequently travel..
the way ur putting is like "its okay that he was drunk, okay that he ran a stop sign, okay that he was speeding, but not okay that he had a CTS at 17..." like it wouldnt have happened if he was 27?
Stupidity has no age limit. There are stupid young people and stupid old people in this world. I see it all day at my business.It's a simple fact that when you're young you do dumb things a lot more often without thinking of the consequenses. It's why us older parents are always telling you to take care...watch out...don't do this...don't do that...not because we like being kill joys. It's because we have made the idiot moves before and would like you to not make the same ones we made. I should've died many times as a youngster. Probably could've killed a few innocent people as well. I got damn lucky. Damn lucky. It's all just fun and games then she says "I think I'm pregnant" and cold reality comes down hard. Stupid shit with cars...girls...beer runs...fireworks...drugs...you name it, kids do it. Not that kids have the lock on stupidity....We talk till we're blue in the face but noooo...you guys have it all figured out. Then BAM! Run a light and everyone's dead. What do you say? I'm sorry? I wasn't being careful and shot your son in the eye with a paintball gun...he's blind now...sorry. Life can have harsh consequenses if you choose to be reckless. I side with nick. When I was a kid I was an idiot behind the wheel. Most kids are. Some are not. Fast and reckless usually results in damage. I was lucky. 4 Kids I grew up with in Sacramento died violent deaths in 4 seperate incidents. 2 on cycles 2 in cars. The 2 on bikes were brothers. I knew thier entire family. Thier mother and father have no more children. A parents worst nightmare unfolded before me. To out live your children. They lost thier only 2 sons to the same bike within 2 months. I miss them both...Craig and Casey Granpre, I grew up with them. Raced cars with them. I bought my first good bicycle from Craig. Toilet papered the street with them. They're both dead now. Several more died in the cars but I only knew the 2.
As a father now I look back at a VERY reckless childhood which I survived only by pure stupid LUCK! Will my 3 kids survive to make it to be adults? Will 1 of them end up killing people by being an idiot? Will I live to see my nightmare unfold before my eyes... I will continue to talk till I'm blue in the face...
