A judge in Rhode Island has recently banned teenager Lyle Topa for racing his car and causing a major accident. In the accident, three other teenagers were seriously injured. Judge Guglietta is making a bold statement with this decision that is causing a stir around the country. Some feel that Judge Guglietta's sentence is too siff and cruel. Others feel that putting a lifetime ban on the teen will prove as a powerful warning to other teenagers, and prevent them from reckless driving practices such as illegal racing in the future.
