      Are you really this stupid? So "all of the legal drag strips" were closed, that gives these Darwin Award candidates the right to race on city streets? Are you out of your ***ing mind?

      • ghostofreportingpast

        No one stated that closing the drag strips gave people permission to race on the streets. "Concerned's" comment merely states that if people who want to race had a place to go, it might decrease the number of street races. However, no matter how many drag strips we have or laws against street racing we create, it will never stop "stupid."

          And you have spelling issues. OK, I withdraw my comment. He's not stupid, but those idiots that were racing on city streets clearly ARE.

    To bad the racers didn't die in the wreck. So many innocent people die because some teens want to get off by racing their acura or honda top speed on a city street.

    Concerned, no that's what happens when people going over the speed limit, make bad choices and are most likely inexperienced drivers. That remark is stupid. Blame it on the drivers NOT the drag strips from closing.

    Problem with the young ones … they think that their honda, toyota, scion, or any cheap car that they own is a porsche or ferrari, and that they all can drive like Ayrton Senna. Kids, you are driving 4-cylinder economy cars. Your only experience in racing is playstation or xbox. Crashing hard in a video game does not even result in a virtual fender damage. Get real. Go to school , get a good job, be a doctor or something, and then you can afford a porsche and racetrack fees.

    If you can't do that… then just drive your car slowly and safely like an economy car that it is.

    Dumbthiness abounds.

    Balboa isn't in Reseda.

    "completely destroyed" is a pre-Journalism School error– there is no such thing as "partially" destroyed. Something is either destroyed or it isn't.

      THANK YOU! You are SO right!

      Here's another one that bugs the crap outta me: "…It occured at 6AM in the morning…" "AM" IS the morning! Funny, people only do this with 'AM' & 'morning'. I've never heard anyone say "6PM in the evening" *shrug*
