Almost 33'000 people were killed in the US last year in road traffic collisions. The single greatest factor when discussing fatalities caused by RTCs
is speed. Even slight increases in speed results in significantly greater chance of dying in a crash.
This borne in mind, why do people own cars that are capable of travelling in excess of the national speed limit?
Why do people own high performance cars?
Why do people own vehicles with high torque/acceleration?
Why do people own custom cars?
These are not needed to carry out the tasks required for the average vehicle commute.
And the right to drive isn't even a RIGHT in the US - it is a privilege.
Are there any seperate registration requirements for vehicles with high performance/torque/large engines etc? Does a driver have to pay a tax to add
items to their vehicle which improves it's performance?
