    All three who were on the hood should be charged with failing to wear seat belts.

    I'm glad they're ok...I think they will indeed try it again..especially the girls on the hood cause they didn't get charged with anything...It's like a bicycle if you fall off get right back up and try it again...I hope this isn't the case

    The 3 teens riding on the hood should be charged with wreckless acts too. These hood riders contributed to this very dangerous nonsense. If anybody was filming it, they should be charged too. If the driver did not have willing participates, then the driver would not have pulled this stupid stunt. It's just as bad as pulling a couch with a vehicle on the highway with willing participants sitting in the couch. No one forced these clowns to participate. Busting them all would stop this behaviour. Judge Judy would know what to do with them; hold everyone involved accountable. Enact new laws that charges all willing participants in dangerous road behaviours.

    Not Smart? Maybe, but we are talking about teenagers here. I’m sure a lesson was learned by more kids that the 4 involved. Also to a few who posted before me, If you can’t think back and remember something stupid you did as a teenager you should check your pulse. Or maybe your memory is a little clouded. :-}

    He should have be cited for reckless endangerment too. Kids do not need a drivers license until they are 18. Why hasn't the law changed, how many teens will die or be permanently disabled before we get the picture?
