Also hope your niece has a speedy recovery
First and foremost, I hope your niece has a full and fast recovery, SA.
I agree with DVS, the courts need to fix the YJA. Teens these days have no respect for anyone. It wasn't like when we were growing up. Did we do stupid things back in the day? Sure we did. It's all part of the joys of beeing a teen. But we never crossed the line. We had too much respect for elders. If you get behind the wheel of a car - no matter how old you are when you have your license, you have a responsibility - not only to other drivers on the road, but to pedestrians as well to conduct yourself in accordance with the law. You gotta try him as an adult. At that age, he knows the difference between right and wrong. You shouldn't be going 45 in a school zone, especially when there's kids around.
