      i think that if the teen have been drinking or texting or smoking or under the influence of anything that could have been a major part of the crash. Or speeding or swerving.
      reasonable and prudent speed means the driver should always obey the speed limit and should adjust speed according to road conditions. And i do think pack of experience has a role on this crash and many others because if you don’t know what your doing on the road it could be very Dangerous to you and others. And driving in the morning could have a huge impact on how you drive because if you didn’t get a good night sleep you could be very tired and fall asleep or doze off behind the wheel.

      Since it was early in the morning, this might have disoriented the teens and they might not have remembered all of the safety procedures. responsible and prudent speed means traveling at the posted speed and adjusting to conditions. For example, slowing down when it is raining or snowing to prevent an accident. The lack of driving experience definitely played a role. The teens did not know how to handle driving in the rain therefore they crashed. The time may have been a contributor to the accident because it was early the teens may have been tired.

      From the video, it seems like the teenagers weren’t being reckless, but should have driven at a slower speed due to weather conditions. It was also early and probably dark out, making driving harder. “Reasonable and prudent speed” has to do with the speed one would drive at under special conditions. Just because there is a certain speed limit doesn’t mean that a car should be going that fast, and in weather conditions like those in the video, a slower speed should be taken. Lack of driving experience was likely a factor, as it takes knowledge and experience to be able to drive safely in extreme conditions. Teenagers don’t have the experience to practice defensive driving, so it’s harder for inexperienced drivers to stay safe. The timing of the crash, at 8:30 am, is significant because it was probably darker than usual that early in the morning, making driving even harder.
