Why 15 year olds probably shouldn't drive

SUV CrashIn the grand automotive state of Michigan, 15 year olds are permitted to start driving on limited permits with their parents. While practice is good, especially with parents, this still seems young to be operating a large, heavily powered piece of machinery. The results of which are not always good.

This photo is one such result of a 15 year old driving with her father in Ann Arbor. She hit a curb, then the car and flipped the SUV. It's rather humours that the BMW SUV flipped so easily, with little apparent damage to the car it hit.

Especially humorous is that the gas-guzzling SUV ended up on the lawn of a Phud (Ph.D.) student of Natural Resources (read: hippy Environmental Engineer).
