For some, I'm sure that's true.
There have always been local and safe alternatives, but the obvious reality is, kids are still street-racing. For others, turning it into a sanctioned, city-approved sport destroys some of the key appeal and doesn't replace the spontaneity with which it happens.
All we can ever hope to do, if we are ever really "free", is lessen the harm done by the fringe elements in society.

There will always be that guy that gets the gun and kills 20 people, the drunk that kills a family, and the speed-racer that crashes into a light pole.

It is the price that has to be paid in order for responsible people to live as free as possible. The alternative is what we have now.

I think we have lost all perspective. We are fighting a trillion dollar war against people that have killed magnitudes less Americans than the automobile, or swimming pools.

We write laws forbidding responsible people from owning animals, because one lady gets her face ripped off.

You must buy cold medication behind the counter and fill out a personal history form because a very few turn that medicine into a recreational drug.

You must buy cigarettes in a separate line, because stores cannot stop a few thieves from stealing.

What will we do next? Install governors on all cars that limit acceleration and top speed?

We should also tax y=the legal racing industry by 1% to help out with the expences and drivers education that we are lacking. My daughter as killed in a street race by the friend of a Pro-racer, immitating his friend on the highway, He was not Hispanic! Street Racing cuts across all lines and it is glorified in Florida. The SEMA show and all enhancing mechanisms and formulas should also be taxed. OUr children are getting slaughtered and there is no accounting in place or justice available.
