If you are driving at legal speeds and are aware of your surroundings then you are in a pretty safe scenario. If you are having a testosterone high and think you are Sebastian Vettel then it doesn't matter what car you drive, you have increased your chances of an accident by a lot (no shit sherlock).
RIP to these young chaps. It's a real shame to see this happening. Its events like these which are tightening the grip of the Government on driving, for eg the potential of these insurance "black boxes" and even further into the future, automatic driving, which will ruin driving.
