Why not to let a friend drive your car and why wearing a seatbelt is smart.

Crazy times. Also why I would suggest to buy vehicles with electronic stability control.

Mississauga street race let friend drive her car
Two friends — one a Brampton resident, the other from Milton — face street racing charges in the horrific crash on Monday night that killed 19-year-old York University student Rabab Arshad.

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

Most people get one chance at life and there's always something stupid along the way to ruin their's and somebody else's lives (either through death, bad disfigurement, and/or criminal charges). I'm gonna guess those group of people will no longer be "friends".

We’ve had mandatory searbelt laws for what, 30+ years, and yet some people still don’t buckle up.

Glad they threw the book at the drivers involved.

I'm guessing this is a 'stupid Canadian regulation' they're not used to following where they're from, so they didn't here.

Back when I was that age people (not me though) street raced, but they were at least respectful enough to do it on the abandoned industrial back roads by the offices near the AMC Winston Churchill theatre in cars that could handle it. Doing it on a crowded street in the busiest part of Mississauga is so incredibly stupid and disrespectful I'm close to saying the people involved deserved what happened to them.

then I "think" she was in on it too, not that innocent, was she. Anyone who gets into a car would put on a seatbelt.

I believe it was on mt.pleasant. Off with a slap on the wrist. The article even indicated that Need for Speed was found in the back seat of the parents destroyed car.

Yep, found it:
