What do you mean by "should be illegal"?

IT IS ILLEGAL. EVERYWHERE.

What happened to those people is horrible, tragic. There are no words that one can express when something like this happens.

But the reality is, that if people can still buy hi-performance cars like 'Vettes, 'Stangs, GTO's, etc., then people are going to street race.

I do not see how this will ever change. It's just that some people who race act totally crazy behind the wheel, while others are more cautious.

All the times that I've been hit by other cars, it's been because they were drunk.

Alcohol/Drugs. That's our biggest problem right now.

And yes, there is not one single doubt that each and every life is absolutely precious. But I fear that the number of people who are killed/injured by drivers who are under the influence absolutely dwarfs those who are killed/injured by racers.

But don't get me wrong though, I'm not defending street racing.

Because when anybody dies a needless death, it's always very, very sad.

Incredibly sad.
