Street racing in Vancouver has taken about seven lives in the past month or so and now the police will, if it's obvious you're racing, take your license and give you a two year suspension on the spot. Almost all have been teens driving on their provisional license.

The sad thing about teenagers is that young driver after young driver dies while street racing in a single month, and they continue to do it thinking "it won't happen to me." Sadly, at that young age ego, and false brovado rule over brains and common sense.

Words to the wise; thinking you are invinsible, and indestructable don't make it so.


P.S. Is the BC media mentioning these deaths so the other kids know how dangerous this is?
