Party lights!

...Looks like he hit the trees Jim!

Click for larger image Well, not the trees per se, but these young men brought their Friday night out to an abrupt end when they whipped past our house and fell prey to the icy road. Physics took hold of them and *WHUMP* *BUMP* off the road they went, mowing down our neighbors' mail boxes and trashing the car's engine and undercarriage.

We called it in, and soon there were a pair of gendarmes, and then a wrecker. I brought two of the passengers in so that they could use the phone and find a ride home. I'm wondering if the PD ticketed the driver for being under age for having three other teens (boys, all of them) in the car.

The House of Hum has been bracketed again. At least this time it wasn't our mailbox that got pasted. :-|

Let's hope and pray there is an arrest. The area has had a significant problem with teenage driving accidents and the police promised to clamp down on it. Hell, all towns have the problem. What's the point of having driving laws to protect the rest of us if they're not enforced.

Amen. At least these kids weren't driving the Official Connecticut Teenage Deathmobile -- the way-too-much-horsepower-for-anyone-under-thirty Subaru Impreza WRX. Two or three of the most spectacular teenage driver car wrecks in the past couple of years have been young men driving their Imprezas way to fucking fast and pasting themselves and their passengers.

I don't see your local arrests, but would be curious if you see anything in the news about it.

It's like an unholy game of roulette.

I'm just glad that the house is up from the road!
