Why you shouldn't street race! please read!
Earlier today, i was turning onto one of the busier streets in town, and a riced out civic turned into the lane next to me. Next thing i know, he's doing a ricer flyby (typical huh?). Thing of it is, we're only about 20 yards from the next intersection, and the civic is going around 50MPH (speed limit was 35). I didn't want anything to do with it, partly because it was a waste of my gas, and mostly because i don't race on the street. Then, without looking to make sure he had enough room, a guy in a big truck coming the opposite direction turned left in front of the civic. The driver of the civic hit his brakes, locked it up and slid into the truck, hitting it at probably around 30mph. The front of his car hit the truck between the two wheels, and went underneath the chassis up to the windshield. I was able to stop just fine, being that i was going the speed limit, and wasn't looking over at another car next to me. The two guysin the civic weren't wearing their seatbelts (it's not "cool" to wear a seatbelt in my town... i'm not cool), and they were both hurt pretty bad. I waited until the cops and everyone arrived, as did a couple of other witnesse (thank god). The cops tried to give me a wreckless endangerment ticket, as well as a street racing ticket, until the other people who saw it said that i was minding my own business. The two in the civic are in intensive care, one is in a coma.
Moral of this long ass story... DON'T BE STUPID
Keep your races on the track
Thanks for reading this, and i hope it will make you think twice before you are tempted to show the guys next to you on main street what's up.
