for those kids that street race

random guy:

At one of the street racing spots tonight, some 16 yr old was killed when he lost control of his Mustang GT racing a neon. There were over 100 yards of skid marks in the grass, he took out a few mid sized trees,took out a huge steel fence barrel rolling and coming to rest up againt some pipe lines in a church parking lot...It was probobly one of the worst things I have ever seen watching the medical examiner pull out his body out of the mangled car...He had no chance whatsoever...the car looked like a pancake....My prayers go to his family
---
friend of deceased:

yes this is true and he was a lss member (lazerredgt) my best friend his name was simeon pina 17 yrs old great guy i was the first on scene and the thing that brought a smile to my face was the fact that when i was trying my hardest to pull him out he mumbled something and i got closer and it was " at least i won" i smiled and cryed and he died right in frount of my this is by far the worst day in my life. R.I.P man

------
i didnt' meet the guy but i do know a couple of his friends (met them). for you guys that want a street racing forum and to continue to be dumbasses, feel free to go to the actual thread, PM him, and tell him how cool and safe you are when you're racing another neon late at night.

thats very unfortunate but i still stand by this:

street racing forums dont cause deaths
street racing forums dont "make" people go street race
however,
street racing forums give people a place to talk about it when they do go race.

Like i said, thats very sad and an unfortunate thing to have happen... but the guy didnt roll his car and whatever else just because there are street racing forums on the internet.

i consider street racing and drunk driving similar... both are unwise and dumb choices in my opinion. and i've lost an intimate friend that moved out to california. drunk driver. i talked to her about 30 minutes before she died. believe you me it's worse than you can imagine.

THAT WAS A DUMB THING TO SAY RELLIK...its not ment to mean yes I want you to sit here and really think about it, he is just saying just think if that was you or someone you loved or were close too...


Our club is very much against anykind of street racing, our motto is take it to the track if you wanna run and have a drudge match...

Sure we do the normal revving and taunting to other camaro and honda imports. 90% out of the time they wanna just hear what the exhuast sounds like, and just get a kick out of it. I raped some guy spinning tires 1 night myself after racing at the track, some dumb *** in this lil CRX with his lil girlie friends, all I saw was smoke and heard is squeeling, as my friend was in his Ford Escape just behindme...he was like that was just so wrong...you raped that poor kid!

But thats the extent of my street racing...

SOrry for the loss my friend, hope the family comes through strong.

At least someone with a brian understood it.

KrazyPony,
Dont know what or even how you misunderstood the statement, but yes, I've lost a loved one in a car accident. I dont talk about it because It's a little hard on me still, but thanks for jumping down my throat none the less. :*******:

IM sorry to hear about the death. It sucks ***.

But you know what this street racing topic is a very touchy one cause you know what as long as I been doing it. Ive seen one death and this death happen cause the media blew up the spot and every damn fast and the furious wannabe came with there ****boxes thinking there the ****. The death happen when a bunch of guys came on bikes doing like a show type thing and this moron in his ****box came on the street with his lights off and the guy on the bike never saw the car till he was flipping over the car.

Another thing a majority of these street racing deaths are teens that just recently got their liscne and just want to show off. They dont know how to handle a car in anyway possible. Like i mentioned above I been going with a few handful of car clubs that run the "track" and its run right. Never any issues and everyone that showed up had real cars and real races. Just sucks when **** like above happens. I dunno its a rambling but I feel theres a good amount of crews that know how to run a spot.

Dont get me wrong though im not one to race on a public road when theres traffic. I race in an industrial area thats theres no traffic minus those that know of the spot and at that the spots are kepted very hush hush.

Always sucks when that happens...

I don't street race. I learned my lesson a long time ago. Haven't raced in about two years. I wasn't afraid I would die. I was afraid the cops were going to take my car. A fate worse than death. Good thing they didn't.

But I don't agree it's some sort of horrible, deadly, crime. I drive 90 on the freeway every day to work. If i go off the road, I'm almost guaranteed to die. And it's not cause I'm speeding. The speed limit is 70. If I go off the road at 70, I'm almost guaranteed to die. If you can't control your car when racing, and you go off the road, there's a good chance something similar will happen.

I'd wager street racing is safer than normal driving. At least you're totally concentrated on driving. You're not talking on your cell phone and eating a hamburger and drinking your big gulp, etc. You're totally focused. That doesn't mean you won't **** up and kill yourself, though. But I think the chances are still in your favor.
