    Judge Imposes Lifetime Driving Ban On 17-Year-Old Boy

    CRANSTON, R.I. (CBS Connecticut/AP) — A Rhode Island judge says he imposed a lifetime driving ban on a 17-year-old boy after a serious car accident because he wanted to send a message about reckless driving.

    Judge William Guglietta revoked Lyle Topa’s license for the rest of his life on Tuesday in connection with the Oct. 23 crash in Charlestown. Topa and three other Chariho High School students were injured when their car crashed into a tree. One passenger was in a coma for weeks. Topa was driving with a suspended license at the time of the accident, according to The Westerly Sun.

    Guglietta said Thursday that Rhode Island’s roads are “littered with broken dreams and broken futures” and it’s time for authorities to get serious about dangerous driving.

    “It was the most strict, most drastic penalty this court can order,” Guglietta said, according to The Westerly Sun.

    Topa’s lawyer says the penalty is too harsh and may be improper. But the teen can apply to the court to get his license back.

    I don't thin it too harsh. One victim in a coma for weeks & he had an already suspended license?? He could have gotten time.

    It won't stop him driving, just driving legally, so he'll have no insurance & no 3rd party insurance either. Let's hope he doesn't kill or maim another motorist & sticks to driving into trees.

    If he does drive again, without being cleared, he will go straight to an adult-style prison, where the experience for him will be very unpleasant, to say the least.

    And sometimes, not here either. For example, drunk drivers in the U.S. are some of the most impossible to keep from behind the wheel. Regardless of the consequences.

    I think that we have the same issues.

    The a magistrate/judge will give the max sentence as "an example" & they appeal & get out just as soon as the rest....
