    lol I drive like an old person and never race. But i believe making the local racetrack free or something like that would definately encourage less street racing the most

    How do you propose to compensate the owner of the track, so he can pay for his insurance/property taxes/maintenance cost/mortgage/etc? The world's rarely so simple, unfortunately. If the local government subsidizes it, it'll still have to be paid by someone. (taxpayers)

    No, at the end of the day I believe in discouraging the behavior with harsh penalties, since innocent folk can come to harm as a result of the activity.

    +1 harsh penalties are in place and they work. The dumb get caught. I have my fun - in a reasonable manner (to me), and I have 0 points on my license. I use a good radar detector, watch the flow of traffic for changes which would indicate a cop car ahead, and to be honest - if I even have a slight inkling of suspicsion that a car could be a cop car (patrol/unmarked), I don't speed.

    Skill or Luck, probably both - but the results are working for me.

    Thats the same thing I do...brakelights of the vehicles in front of you are key, and knowing all possible hiding spots where a cop could be and just slowing to an acceptable speed when approaching those spots...hath saved me many a time...

    its all fun and games until someone gets hurt. maybe that's cliche'd, but in all seriousness there are too many things that can happen in the public domain. hey even the very best professional race car drivers make mistakes, big ones sometimes.

    Yeah, they're called "accidents".

    Some people live life on the very safe side - and that's a very smart thing in most cases. However, enjoyment in my case usually involves some measure of risk. I did quite a bit of experimenting when I was younger, had plenty of unprotected sex and consumed a great deal of things I shouldn't have ... was it worth it? Was I lucky? I say "yes" others may disagree - but life is ultimately a subjective matter until fate steps in.

    There's personal risk, and then there's unwisely risking the safety of others. I'm fine with one, and agree with your feelings about it...I have moral problems with the other.

    I've jumped out of an airplane at 12,500 feet, but the only one in danger was me.

    this is exactly what i feel. take all the risks with yourself that you want - thats cool and the gang. really, i like a little bit of risky business myself . but, among other things, screwing around in your car on the street creates risk for everyone else in your proximity. that is not cool in any way shape or form. no matter how semi-skilled a guy is nor lucky up to right now.
