Your Ride: 1991 318is (e30 m42), 2007 Mazdaspeed 3
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
All folks here have a valid point because of their particular situations & past experiences. We also have one thing in common - we're all motorheads. That being considered, 90% of folks we drive around consider cars & driving as transportation only and they don't give a rats ass about courtesy. Driving to them is the same as waiting in line at some check out counter. They don't think, they don't plan - they're IDIOTS. That's why speed limits are posted - it's not aimed at people who enjoy driving & respect it - it's for those who are constantly in need of instructions. I know a ton of cops who are racers that feel (when working) doing a traffic stop is glorified babysitting.
CNN had a good example of an 80 year old woman driving the wrong way in the "fast lane" of I40 - she went 14 miles against traffic before getting stopped. And NO she didn't get a ticket! go figure
