    Irresponsible to me means, the person is doing whatever they want, not thinking about others. Doing something irresponsibly means to me doing it carelessly without thought for others. And the ones who modify their cars and do it with other people as a side interest, are not doing it irresponsibly, only to be looked down upon because of the young teens who drive recklessly and fast.

    Plus most of the streetracers I know dnt go flaunting their car or speeding every chance they get.

    I was talking about street racing, not moding cars. Never said there's anything wrong with people wanting to mod cars.

    Racing on the street isn't as small as eating too much candy or something bad for your. Even if the road is clear, something could pop out of no were while you're going too fast to react to it. I just don't see how speeding on the street is not reckless.And then lets say you crash but hurt no one, in the end you messed up your own car while knowing you could have avoided that mess. Plus if you damaged public property you'll have to pay for it too.

    If people were racing on an open track, and or an open area with nothing around I don't think it'd really matter but it's on the street.

    well, no point in modding the car without pitting them against each other.

    Most races don't go past intersections, more like from one light to another. And though that small risk is there of someone turning in unexpectedly without looking, I havent heard of any accidents of streetracing, except from dumb driving. (like losing control of your car and swerving into the other driver, or racing while other cars are around)

    Some people just like having nice looking cars without risking messing up their cars, or driving a little fast on open highways. I for one no longer have the urge to drive fast much anymore, but i like my car lookin nice as crappy as it is. >_>

    And I'd disagree, there are definitely lots of cases were people crash while street racing. Not everyone just races to the next light, and there are those who dumb and who you claim are responsible that do still crash. Especially were I live since there's lots of street racers out here.

    Well making your car look nice and making it fast is two different things, guess I wasn't specific enough.

    Those are the type that make streetracers look bad and dangerous.

    The streetracing I know of is done late at night, when the streets are practically empty, also done on the highway, as to cancel out cars appearing out of nowhere. And when its a random encounter with another car, keep it short and only if theres plenty of free space.

    Either way, cops have no way of distinguishing one from the other and everyone pays

    there's a lot of cases where ppl crash for many things. If there was news for every crash out there i can guarantee that crashes from cell phones or something else out ways street racing. It's just not as interesting or whatever you want to say cuz we all know media likes to exploit the littlest things.

    And by little things you mean anything counter-culture.

    Although I do agree at times things can be blown up by the media, but it happens all the time over here and tbh its annoying. But it's not nearly as annoying as the sideshows here.

    Now, I already know car crashes happen for different reasons, but I said when it comes to people crashing while racing and nothing else. So do you not consider it reckless?

    If people have the money, they should be able to fix up cars how ever they want legally. Just because they don't use it for racing doesn't mean they don't mean as much.

    And all you have seemed to be doing was defending why you guys race on safer terms, but you never answered how street racing is not reckless. If you can prove that it's not reckless i'll keep arguing, but if you can't then I have nothing more to say.

    street racing can be reckless. Like everything, there's a point to where its fun/safe and to a point where it's dangerous.

    Please elaborate, while I can know it can be fun, I can't see how it is safe to race on a street or highway at exceedingly high speeds.
