Take licences away and seize their cars

Take the licences away, forfeit the cars, and make the parents pay.

Editor: So what are these 21-year-old (and under) kids doing driving around in cars that cost almost as much as my mortgage? And half of them are ‘new’ drivers.

The penalty — $196.  Those ‘new’ drivers should lose their licences. If I’m caught driving under the influence, I can lose my licence.

I am assuming that the money for most of these vehicles came from overseas, and this is what makes it wrong.

Take the licences away, forfeit the cars, and make the parents pay. Someone could have been killed — either one of the drivers, or an innocent participant in a celebration that was dangerous to everyone. Where do we draw the line?
