Teens and Cars

February 20, 2007

Another story is in the media today is about a group of teenagers outside Whakatane who were being stupid. A 13-year old girl was sitting on the boot of the car (persumably on the outside) fell off as the car travelled down the road, hit her dead and died. This is terrible because how many people don’t know that hitting your head on concrete hurts let alone after falling from a moving car. Just read the newspaper every day and someone has found out that heads and concrete don’t go well together.

I imagine the peer pressure amongst the group must have been quite high for anyone to be stupid enough to do this and I hope the other kids involved don’t get off with a warning. They are all should be held responsible. Come on parents – where were you when this was happening? You guys should be locked up too. Put everyone in jail – that’s what I say!
