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.

He's in the "it looks fast" car. The civic is a family car. If the civic was trying to street race, every cop is going to assume the sporty looking car that just happened to be next to it was also. Not fair at all, but that's how they think. rolleyes

moral of the story:

Don't race...or buy better brakes wink

Seriously though, keep it on the track.

To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier

I call it an accident because i doubt that the guy driving the civic intended to drive his car into a big ass truck.

I agree! The divers where I live are bad enough without that movie encouraging them further. Common sense people... please. If not for yourself then for someone else. I just found out a guy I went to school with was in a bad motorcycle accident a while back. The handle bars went into his body and actually tore out stomach and some of his other internal organs. He is...alright...now though, I actually ate dinner with him the other night, very nice guy. But he was racing when he had the accident.

Wow...my jaw dropped and my stomach turned cry

That is horrible. eek Sad thing is I used to drive that way! I stopped when I let my 18yr old brother drive to manassas with me. He wasn't supposed to drive anywhere, but since I was following him I thought that it would be ok. He blew through a red light making a left hand turn...scared me to DEATH. Then I watched him goof off all the way down the road. He changed lanes WITHOUT looking pushed another car over...it was horrible! cry

smileI realized how important life is and that whatever you do effects someone else!

This was a GREAT post! Props for not doing that either! Glad to hear that you are okay thumbsup

The same shit happened to me about 1 1/2 yrs ago. Except it was a riced out del sol and he approached an intersection with stopped cars in our lanes. To top that off we were both headed downhill so stopping was extra difficult. The delsol spun out after locking his brakes up and slid into a truck. the whole del sol then almost flipped. I didn't even care to stick around. I left and in order to do so I had to run over the drivers hat which flew off his head.

I'll agree that way too many dumb kids take that movie seriously, but I know for me, and probably others, it was my first introduction to the import scene.

F&F isn't the only reason, like imp said. People are responsible for their own stupid actions. I don't race at all right now (my car needs maintainance) but I sure as hell wouldn't race on the street

Those tickets wouldn't have stood a chance in court if they did issue them to him.

Pretty harsh, I think a better lesson is wear your seatbelt, like seriously.. what kind of moron now a days does not wear their seatbelt?? And second, don't drive like an asshole and even though people are suppose to watch out for you, it's better that you do the looking for them because a lot of people don't shoulder check and they can't see whats in their blind spot.

I wouldn't call this a result of street racing, just careless driving and those kids are lucky to even be alive. Very sad though.

I agree.. the first thing I told my friend is I'd want to upgrade all our cars [/b]"brakes"[/b] get top of the line for that as being able to stop increases your chances of getting out of an accident I'd say.. thumbsup

I agree, racing should be done, but THERE ARE TRACKS FOR THAT! All that racing on the street does is put innocent people in danger, as you saw in the story above. What if, instead of it being a truck, it was another little car, and they kids in the civic had hit it square on their passenger door and killed the person sitting there? you you still be saying "fuck you fags" when we said it was a fucking piss poor idea for the asses in the civic to be trying to race me on a busy fucking street!

Please, stay the fuck off the streets of my town.
