What's needed are more dragstrips and racetracks where you can go for the day and get your need for speed taken care of.

I could not agree more. The temptation of the rush is far to great, and especially with cars that are fun; why should everything be illegal? Hell, Germany has the Autobahn and less people die than in the US.

Strict laws push people into taking risks to enjoy their vehicles, maybe a change of policies is the solution.

Best regards,
CSL

I agree, more local drag strips and tracks would decrease the amout of fatalities on the road.

Definitely agree in regards to the increase in circuits. I don't really care for dragstrips. Unless I'm driving a car putting down more than like 400 at the wheels I bet I'd get bored going in a straight line after a while. What we need are autoX circuits. Lots of em.
