I'm finally going to give my piece of mind on the actual topic at hand. When I was a kid there was basically a simple ticket you could sometimes get for "peeling and squealing". Modern street racing culture has ruined that for everyone due to sheer stupidity displayed and the limelight it has garnered. Legislaters are now trying to write (or may have even succeeded) laws for Life in Prison for even serious injuries caused to innocent people while street racing. Just saying that is how serious people are taking it.
Slippery slope from there to cat removal, for sure.
Compared to Pavia's thread, I was trying to find the one where the guy posts on a forum, people bash on him, then he goes out and kills himself (maybe others, IDRC) street racing. Do you want to be a part of a community that has their thread put on the national news and no one was even allowed to protest to the stupidity of the conduct portrayed?
I do not ever "street race".
