No, No, It'll Work THIS Time

Dateline: Rhode Island (emphasis added):
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.
[...]
[the boy] was driving with a suspended license at the time of the accident, according to The Westerly Sun.

Driving without a license? Then we'll super-duper take it away.

Yeah, that should solve the problem.

  1. That boy better wake up or the judge might wag his finger at him next time.

  2. I'd be inclined toward "community service". Such as cleaning up the mess after someone else's traffic accident - including, but not limited to, scrubbing blood off the road with a toothbrush.

  3. This is along the lines of people feeling "safer" because they have a restraining order against another person. heh. I can't count how many times I've read (after an attack) "but she/he had a restraining order...".
