Default 16 year old driving to fast

Some of you may recall the 16 year old neighbor girl I mentioned in another thread....anyway, she's had her license for about 6 months. Every time she leaves or arrives, she races down the street like there's no tomorrow. There are about 8 little kids (10 and under) on the street, including her own brother and sister. She knows how we feel about people going to fast down the street (by we I mean all the adults including her own parents) because of multiple conversations over the years about just such drivers.

Anyway, my question to you is...should I bring this up to her parents or directly with her?

I'd throw a dummy out in the middle of the road when she's driving.

Try to aim it so the dummy hits the front of the car and she thinks she hit a person. Also, you referenced another thread with no ? WTF?

How is it that you've noticed but her parents haven't?

If you dont have a dummy, use a basketball or soccer ball. Every time her car gets close, throw or kick it in the street. See if she is alert enough to slam on the breaks.

Start your car, wait for her to start driving down the street, race her, win, laugh in her face.

Not necessarily in that order.
