    No license, speeding, and now 2 people hurt, hope they recover. For the young lady driving, I would say when she turns 21, she can apply for a license and if caught driving during this time, she does some significant jail time. A slap on the wrist will make it more likely for her to kill herself or someone else in the near future.
