When I get kids and they are old enough to drive I'm sending to an emergency situation driving school (don't know exact term lol). That way they will learn to respect the car they drive by being in scary controlled situations, and deter them away from driving too fast, and influencing them to save any "need for speed" for a track. They would also have to volunteer and work at the track before getting access to drive on it (in the slow car they earn), hopefully putting some sense in their head to know that it's serious and dangerous business.
Ironic. When I was 16 just 2 months ago, I crashed my e36 that I have owned for only a week and totalled it by crashing it into a tree cuz my friends pressured me into doing a drift and lucky us, no one was hurt. Trust me, I learned my lesson and now, I'm in a civic.

RIP to those poor kids. As for the parents they should be charged with something. I'm from Florida and see this type of stupid rich kid accidents often. I guess it's easier as a parent to buy your kids what they love then to show them you love them by teaching them. I guess it's just the new American way, even average people I've seen trying to be their kids "friends" instead of the parent, it's really sickening. Again RIP and hopefully many others learned from their tragic mistake.

bmw had a tour where they went to different cities and taught people between the ages of 16 and 21 for free on how to control the x3 on a skid pad and how to avoid objects when going head on into it at a speed of 45mph. i did it and it taught me a lot.
or his dad let him borrow it ; even worst, poor kid, may he rest in peace, unfortunately his example willl soon fade out of the mainstream and would be incidents like this will occur again, sad but I think it is also inevitable.
