Allright I said something a few pages back, I see both sides and both make good arguments. I think JMS has the best idea for manditory trianing. I have done a saftey school and 3 track events and plan on doing more, as well as getting into autoX, so I know how to drive my car and handle my car. In my opinion you can go fast but thats the only thing you can do, you have to be focused on your driving and not on the GODDAMN cell phone or reading a book or being some sort of idiot, you can only concentrate on your driving and in doing so your being safer then 99% of the other people out there. You both make good points but I think i'm going with xsperf, you can drive fast and drive safe.
also about the roads, Linds, Michigan is pretty striaght too
