Don't race on the streets period. - Excessive speed kills.
The driver will lie and try to minimize his fault. The parents will defend him. The insurance company will pay the other families. If his parents have money they will get sued. Meanwhile your kid is dead because some punk thinks he is a racecar driver.
Wait a couple of weeks there will be more accidents related to summer tires and newbies. It happens every year, luckily most are just wheel damage from hitting curbs.
