I'm against street racing as a whole
it might be a lot of fun, but the dangers outweigh everything
damage or total your car and other cars
destroy public and private property
kill or injure yourself or others
cause an increase in traffic law enforcement (+spending)
cause an increase in the cost of car insurance
ruin the reputation of car enthusiasts
all this for what? to prove that your car is faster? to prove that you can drive or shift quicker than someone else?
I don't want to come off as sounding 'holier than thou', but if you street race, please reconsider.
