    While I agree with you, I feel I should point out;

    That video clip is filmed on the Autobahn, so its technically not 'street racing'.

    don't be cute. racing generally means high speeds and manouvers at high speeds. which comes with the obvious risk of crashing. which comes with the obvious risk of killing. :p:

    Low speed car crashes can kill as well. If your racing it implies you're taking more risk than you would be otherwise, it also implies you're above the speed limit. Unless your Ali G......

    I wouldn't say it was street racing. Just 2 dumb-asses trying to show off.

    Btw, does anyone know any documentaries about street racing? I like F&F but I'd like to watch something real.

    you cant control bees, you can not drive like a **** though.

    it's not really a non issue in this contry, many drivers get caught out whilst driving like mugs, both young and old. it's not a ''proffessional' street racing kills'' video, it's a general 'dont drive like an idiot' one.. I hardly posted it to suggest that the police should clamp down on illegal street racing :rolleyes:

    children will always be reckless, especially boys and increasingly girls.

    The difference is 20 years ago your average teen child couldnt afford anything like a car and only the reasonably well off had scooters or upper middle classes got cars bought by rich "mummy and daddy".

    So of course on BMX's etc, children could only really hurt themselves. Where as now they have a ton and a half of steel capable of 100mph (eventually in most cases) and usually with at least 4 seats so the capability to cause themselves harm is greatly magnified.

    Plus 99% of children think they are to an extent invincible and 100% of boy racers thier ego far exceeds thier driving ability.

    So no wonder theres accidents. Surprised theres not more deaths but in a round about way, thier immaturity saves them. As they can only afford **** cars at 17/18 then usually **** = slow so they cant really go up the country lanes so choose to impress thier mates and attempt to "trap" thier underage teen girlfriend in town centre car parks or council estate roads. Obviously less speed means less chance of fatalitys.

    Note deliberate use of "child". Some of them boy racers may be over 18 but they are immature and acting like children therefore they dont deserve to be referred to as adults when they clearly cant act like them.

    The solution? price young people out of driving. Harsh but effective. Plus think of increased health effect when lazy arsed students are forced to walk to uni!!

    problem being, you price boy racers out of insurance, than you have the problem of said boy racer being uninsured when he drives anyway and wrecks into a family focus..
