Default Kid runs over Mother and toddler on Bayshore Boulevard at 100 MPH.

Surprised this hasn't been a topic yet. Block away from me. I walk my dog twice a day on the sidewalk and it is like playing frogger crossing. Kid should be dragged behind a car going 100...

Mustang was going 102 mph before hitting mother, daughter crossing Bayshore, report says | tbo.com

. Don't text and drive, don't street race at nearly 4x the speed limit, cars are getting very fast it's easy for an inexperienced driver to be in over his or her head. Mustang's power is up significantly, would be curious if their braking distance has decreased by the same measurable distance.

100% agree! Just this past Friday my business partner and I were coming home from work and had a teenager driving a brand new Camaro with 30 day tags blow past us, cutting in front of our truck almost hitting us and then had to slam on the brakes to keep from hitting the van that was in front of us when he began to stop at the intersection. The driver then whips in to the left lane not realizing the light was red and almost rear ended another car stopped at the light in the left lane. Then when the light changed he floored it and pulled in front of the van in the right lane, turned on to highway 55 in front of us and proceeded to pass vehicles on a double yellow running two oncoming cars off the road! Sadly we were unable to get the plate but I did call in a description of the car to the police. My first though was mom and dad just bought their kid a new car for graduation. Considering the way he was driving it won't be around very long. I only hope he doesn't kill someone else in the process!

But there is a F'n reason.
Video Games, the decline in personal responsibility, Participation trophies. Single-parent families. Decline in Driver's Education training.
Poor choices by the parents. Stress.

Short Story:
Years ago my supervisor bought his 16 year old son a really nice red F-150 for his birthday present. Such a good boy, and started getting better grades.
One month later, probably 2000 miles, all the tread was gone on the rear tires.
That boss traded his boys truck in on a Ford Focus with the base engine, maybe 90 horsepower.
His son wrecked that three weeks later. Side-swiped a tree at 70+ mph.

hBayshore Boulevard is a favorite place for the wife and me to walk. What a shame that some kid ruined his life and some others also. I didn't have much sense when I was a kid but I am glad that when I was doing 95 that I didn't have a wreck and it wasn't on a crowded street and I didn't go that fast more than a few times.

He should be treated to the PROMISE program like Cruz. Needs another chance. Poor kid.

I love the defense attorney, "these data recorders are not infallible." LOL!!!!

Ok counselor, let's cut the speed in half, (which it wasn't) he's still 11mph over the speed limit.

EDR's are the single best piece of evidence when it comes to vehicle crashes, period. You're client is done.

This needs to be treated exactly the same as if this POS opened fire at a food court with a shotgun.

But it won't. Not even close. I did accident reconstruction for 12 years and I can say this with absolute certainty, you want to kill someone? Do it with a motor vehicle. I could tell you some stories you wouldn't believe.

This makes me sick.

He probably won't, he is 17 and probably won't be charged as an adult. Graduated from a private high school two days prior and his 20 yr old brother was his passenger. Kid in the car he was racing was 18 and graduated with him. Unfortunately, justice would be better served if the 18 yr old hit the mother/child, instead he will probably get a ticket for reckless driving and be on his way. 17 yr old will probably do 5 yrs or so, depending upon how much daddy spends on a lawyer. Mother/child is dead either way and a family has been ripped apart.

What a dumb comment. Plenty of accidents happen back in the day due to racing.

You do know that teen deaths from car accidents are dropping not increasing? You act like teens driving recklessly is something new, its not.

That's one more great thing about this nation. With enough money a rich family can buy their way out of just about anything.

Ya, I never got over 25 in a neighborhood on mine; and that was almost 15 years ago.


I don't normally condone suicide, but if I'm that kid.....

(that was tongue in cheek by the way..... or was it)

Kid and parents have no remorse. They are more worried about his driving privileges at college in the fall then this poor family. Sue that family into the ground.
