You would have to be a pretty reckless driver to get your license revoked for the rest of your life at only 17, but that's exactly what happened to Lyle Topa.
Topa seems like a worthy candidate for the punishment, considering he nearly killed himself and three passengers last October, when he street racing while drunk and hit a tree while trying to pass a car. One of the passengers was in a coma following the accident, but luckily survived.
Oh, and did we mention that Topa had his license revoked twice before? This is while driving with less than two years of driving experience.
The sentence may not hold up, seeing as how Topa or his family can always appeal the decision, but there's no doubt that this has sent a strong message to teen drivers.
