I didn't mean "side by side," and that never entered my mind, but you get the idea:
The pictures I posted were the results of going off the road, each driver in a one-car "race" and reminded of the law(s) of physics.
This showcases a lack of skill rather than the act of racing
Just drilling home the point that there's a yellow line on the left; a white line on the right. Drive as you will, but keep it within those boundaries, and loo Ik out for those drivers coming the other way, whom may not be following such guidelines.
I do have many rules I personally follow when racing or spirited driving but I wouldn't judge others for not following some of them but I do have a set of rules I expect anyone I'm associating with and especially racing to follow and this is in the top 3, I couldn't agree more
This is not a comment on you in particular, but only in regards to the main point in going to the Dragon.
I didn't take offense to it
, in fact that was part of the point I was making, but I would argue its a universal rule and should be followed any time you get in a car regardless of what you are doing
I'm typing on a on-screen keyboard so I can't type a lot which is why I didn't say it the way you did but figured during the meet I could let my driving do the talking and answer any questions anyone had about this in person
To put it simply I welcome any challengers but will refuse anyone who cant drive or is willing to put others in harms way by not following safety rules and anyone currently racing me that does not follow this automatically forfeits and I will immediately stop the race and refuse to associate with them, I don't narc but will not put myself in harms way over a race and don't have tolerance for people who are willing to "act a fool" on public roads this is due to both safety and image, spirited driving and street racing isn't necessarily dangerous on its own but when unskilled *******s do it it almost always ends badly and is usually highly publicized and used as proof as why any street racing or spirited driving should be banned which has had wide-ranging effects such as lower speed limits, higher legal penalties, judgment, as well as things like banning some performance mods and reduction of the car scene and legal meets
I'm not a square by any means and often reach 70+ mph speeds when spirited driving, but I'm also highly skilled, experienced, hyperaware and follow all logical safety rules
Accidents do happen sure but factors related to racing/spirited driving such as speed are force multipliers and not causes when done by skilled and respectful drivers and part of what makes someone skilled enough for these activities is understanding this
or simply put racing isn't any more dangerous than normal driving when done by skilled drivers but no matter how skilled you are you can't force others to drive safely or correctly and cannot prevent accidents but you can handle more speed and even prevent some accidents caused by poor driving on your part but if you do get in an accident its more likely to cause massive damage than if you where not racing/spirited driving
