WHY must one drive that fast? That's utterly ridiculous.. And as soon as they cause an accident and/or a fatality, their family members want to literally "come out of the woodwork" claiming how great & grand these people are. The bottom line is they're breaking the law & they need to slow it down! And these are just the ones that got caught...

People going that fast should have their licemse revoked for a year. There is no reason to ever go that fast on public roads. Idiots...

I'm so glad that these people were arrested. There is absolutely no reason to drive that fast. I agree with the cell phone comment too, I see so many stupid actions made by people talking on their cell phones.

I'll bet most of them have "fart pipe" exhausts. You need to rev that engine up to high speeds to hear the ghastly sounds over the cranking bass. It's the mating call of rice burners everywhere.

Maybe that's true, I don't know. My car happens to run on sauerkraut.

Now they'll have to sell the sound system to pay for the huge fine.

Car value:$500
Sound System value:$2000
Car w/ Sound System value:$300

These people must have money to burn. You'd think the price of gas would be deterrent enough

Is there any difference between driving that fast and waving a loaded gun at people? Throw the book at these jerks and take their licenses before they kill someone.

Not from the victim's point of view. Technically, it's more dangerous for the perpetrator.

Waving a loaded gun at someone isn't generally a death risk for the shooter.

A driver killing an innocent victim in an accident may very well suffer the same outcome as they crumple within the mass of metal around them.

I thought "assault with a deadly weapon" charges are sometimes issued in vehicular deaths.

I really don't care about the wellbeing of the perpetrator. I was speaking strictly in terms of the victims.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I agree. If someone want to drive like a jerk, they need to be put in their place, if the police catch them.

I'm not saying it's right or wise behavior, but in defense of those who speed:
1 - Interstate highways are designed for 100 MPH travel on dry pavement?
2 - Who's idea was it to produce a Honda sedan with over 260 HP?
3 - 90 MPH, in reality, is only 10 MPH above what everyone else is traveling?

Any road material that couldn't provide the grip required to maintain 100MPH speed when dry certainly couldn't provide proper grip when wet. Doesn't mean it's safe or wise to push those limits.
2 - Who's idea was it to produce a Honda sedan with over 260 HP?
Someone who tows, or has a full load all the time, and yet still wants to be able to accelerate onto the highway.
3 - 90 MPH, in reality, is only 10 MPH above what everyone else is traveling?
People doing 80 apparently didn't get pulled over. You need to draw the line somewhere. 90 is 25MPH over the speed limit. A whole new level of laws can be enforced at that point.
