    The teenager who was driving a car that crashed in Charlestown last fall , injuring him and his three passengers, has lost his license forever.

    A judiciary spokesperson said a traffic court judge imposed the severe penalty on the 17-year-old Tuesday. It means he will never again be able to get a license in Rhode Island.

    The penalty is a provision that the judge says exists in state law, but has never been used.

    "This traffic tribunal is no longer sitting idly by as our youth are killed and injured on our roads," said Judge William Guglietta.

    "The time has come for a change in our attitude of our young people's driving and I hope this is the first step in accomplishing that goal," Guglietta added.

    Investigators say the teen and his three friends had just left a party at the Richmond home of former Chariho school committee member Terri Serra when they crashed into a tree last October.
    Not sure how I feel about this.

    While I'd be behind him losing his license for a year or two, but permanently? And he didn't kill anyone? Wat?

    So, a 17 year old crashed a car, and injured himself and his passengers

    totally fair to take away his license permanently

    But nobody died it seems.

    And then it says

    I feel like they're just trying to make use of the provision, just because. A permanent license loss is too severe a punishment for what the kid did.

    The logic behind the decision is probably that the kid made such a bad decision that he shouldn't have a license that would enable him to endanger others again. But I would agree, from the minute amount of information given in the article you cannot come to the conclusion that he deserves to lose it forever.

    He can just get a license from another state. It's not like Massachusetts isn't 5 minutes away.

    And yet there are people who continually drive drunk, drive while talking on a phone or texting, hit pedestrians and other drivers and still have THEIR licenses.

    There are far worse drivers on the road with much less regard for the safety of those around them, I mean does this kid have a history of terrible driving or something or is the judge just against him because he's young?

    All my rage when I see someone on their phone while driving.

    What the fuck is so important that you have to be putting your life and my life at risk? It's probably a 30 minute car ride. Unless your mom just died, put the fucking phone down and concentrate on going in a straight line.

    Dear god this.

    My brother got two DUI's in a week a year ago and he can reapply for his license now. Does this make sense to any of you as well?

    I think its more that the Y and Milliunum(sp?) take most of our rights for granted, and then take our privileges as rights. However this harsh punishment doesn't coincide with the actually accident.

    If he was a repeat offender then I would understand.

    Absolutely, you want to put your own life in danger? Fine, your call. Put the life of someone else in danger, especially over something so trivial? No, fuck off forever.
    Then there are the people who pay no attention to what's going on around them.

    Only reason my brother got one DUI charge dropped is he said he was doing the Navy's AA meetings, and represented himself in court.



    I'm still shocked a year later by the fact he got two fucking DUI's in a week. After the first don't they take your license?

    There is truth to this. I have seen more women use their phones or drive simply awfully compared to men.

    When I say awful, I mean like 10 under the speed limit awful.

    While I disagree with this, this is a huge blow against teen car accidents.

    Because just FYI, teens cause by far the most car accidents. I don't blame older adults for not being comfortable with teens essentially being kamikazes with no goal (and by accident of course).

    Just imagine, some stupid kid who just jacks off all day killing you and for grandkids or kids because he was texting or sexting while driving.

    Teens are all over the news these days, and all over the paved streets as grinded meat and splattered puddles.

    I use this strong language since I have met this high ranking CHP officer many times (he shows the infamous Red Asphalt videos) and he has said that his job is essentially overseeing the cleaning of near liquefied teens off of miles of street pavements every week of his life.

    This one guy had his head filed off (you know like when you use a nail file or you constantly use your pencil eraser, thus shaving it to nothing? That happened to this show off guy once and it was like a Google maps directions thing but red instead of yellow or whatever)

    Again harsh, but you have no idea how fucking sick and tired the government is with cleaning up mangled teenagers.

    Inexperienced driver, likely distracted by his teenage passengers, ran off the road and hit a tree. Perfectly plausible course of events, and warrants at most a six month suspension coupled with some driver's ed. I could only see a permanent suspension if he was street racing and killed someone because of that, but the article makes no mention of anything of the sort.

    Instead of overreacting we need to get some decent standardized driver's ed in America. The simple fact of the matter is that it's too easy to get your license. Most states, mine is one of them, put the onus of educating new drivers on their parents, who are often getting their kids a license because they're too busy to shuttle them around. Thus, they're unable to teach the kids how to drive.

    We put in federally mandated driver's ed for all fifty states and we'll see a HUGE reduction in teen driving mishaps, and we don't have to ruin their livelihoods forever to do it!

    Circa how long does it take to get a driver's license in America?

    I know the average person spends around 4-5 months here in Norway.

    It depends. Generally if you're over 18 you can walk into a DMV, take the driving test that takes about ten to fifteen minutes, and if you pass you get your driver's license. This varies from state to state of course, some states require you to take a Drug and Alcohol test which can take anywhere from two to three hours to complete.

    This is all assuming you're over 18 and know how to drive mind you.

    If you're under 18 you have to log hours driving and get instructed

    But once you're over you can just do what SwissArmyKnife said

    Are you playing videogames or what? Every time i drive i risk my life because women doesn't know when to turn or they can't stay on the fucking right side of the road. It's a bit generalized but it's not far from reality.
