    The husband of a very good friend of my wife, and an ex-race car driver, told me he felt much safer on the track at high speeds than he did on the road at normal speeds. Reason: the drivers on the track were professionals and therefore predictable.

    Defensive driving is the only answer.

    Kid late for a date, driving way to fast on two lane road, mostly hilly no passing areas. He's on the cell phone making up lies about why is running late....you see him, coming in the opposite direction, you have no idea if it's the kid described above....but ya better assume it is!

    When the kid woke up this morning, I'm sure he didn't say, :I'm gonna go out and kill somebody today.....but he sure is primed and ready to do just that!

    Just happened to think...and rather enjoyed the experience, I'll have to try it again some time. Anybody remember Figure 8 racing?
