Is it the lack of Racetracks / Dragways or lack of respect for the power of these cars? GTA makes anyone who plays it think it's OK to drive like that.
As far back as I can remember, and I can remember way back, (and before GTA) drivers were crashing cars, high performance cars, even with race tracks around. Alcohol was involved in a number of these accidents. All involved reckless behavior that caught up with the driver and often his passengers. My first and strong image of an accident was when I was with my Dad and we came upon a pretty recent accident. Car (traveling at some speed) left the road and smashed into a substantial tree in the front yard of a house. The car -- unrecognizable but a pre-WW2 model of car -- was just a ball of metal. As Dad and I watched a person (coroner?) went from body to body -- they were scattered about the front yard -- and all 3 young men were declared deceased.

I agree there have been street racing crashes for a hundred years, that is obvious. The lack of respect for the power these off the shelf cars have is like no other time.
I also think the consequences aren't recognized if you lose control. Put those two together, that's all I'm saying.

These boneheads were never going to tracks anyway. Linking the two scenarios is a reach.

and just wait till the general public can do 0-60 in 3 sec driving any electric car. It's gonna be a chit show.
They're much safer though, AWD and low center of gravity prevents stuff like this from happening. Tesla even says their cars can't be rolled over.

I saw that , but it does roll. It's just good at landing on its feet.
Well, it fell off a 250ft cliff, that's a little different than going down a hillside.
