Reckless behaviour in young adults derives from the way the brain is wired. The frontal lobe is responsible for decision making and is not fully developed until the mid 20's. That is why young adults tend to be reckless and do not always make responsible choices (at least what would be gaged as responsible by a fully developed adult).

The media may exaggerate this type of behaviour, but ultimately it comes down to biology. As such, everyone experiences it, but adults tend to forget this.
