|Modified cars are a favorite among young male adults|
Okay, this is my last "Heaven and Hell" column for the year 2012 and for my last post of the year, I'm digging deep through the anatomy of the one thing that is proven to be a "menace to society" in the streets; the anatomy of a boy racer. When I say boy racer, I mean of course yes, those "speedo boys" who love to do dangerous driving on the streets. I'm referring to those dangerous young male drivers everywhere.
It's a common belief by the public that those young male drivers, aged 17 to 25, are more prone to lethal car accidents especially in the night. Well, based on some research, those idiotic "speedo boys" aged 17 to 20 are seven times more at risk than most male drivers but by the hours of 02:00 to 05:00 (that's 2am to 5am to you), the risk is somewhat 17 times more, about over 225 are killed or injured annually. Also from some research I've found on the internet, those young male drivers who are aged 21-25 are about double the risk of lethal accidents but by the hours of 02:00 to 05:00, the risk was tripled.
I have no idea why most male drivers on that kind of age group are more prone to accidents than other drivers in the world but it occurs to me that those young men in their hoodies, training shoes, and some bling-bling jewelries are often the ones are causing this ruckus. I mean come on, why would they love to enjoy getting themselves killed on the city streets at night? Is that necessary? All those swearing and trash talk and cigarette breath and modification really led to some serious trouble that the government's been addressing on. Question is....what's inside a typical young male driver aged 17 to 25? Let's see what's inside their brain...
THE ANATOMY OF A DANGEROUS YOUNG MALE DRIVER:
- (name of car withheld) Tuning
- The Fast and the Furious movies
- Top Speed
- (name of car withheld) modified
- (name of car withheld) racing
- (name of car withheld) parts
- body kit/aero kit
- which is better?
- bucket seats
- Hooning is not a crime!
- engine swap
- (name of car withheld) owners club
- Angel Eyes
- carbon fiber
- speakers at the boot
- loud music
- TV screens at the back!
- Aftermarket doors
- Exhaust spitting fire
- Lots and lots of monitors inside my car!
- Custom paint
- DUI or Driving Under the Influence
- Texting while driving
- Blacked out/murdered out
...and whatever what's inside the mind of a very dangerous and notorious young male driver with the obsession of killing himself or anyone on the streets by pushing his car to the limit against anyone.
Apart from those, I sense that boy racers on the streets love to do some criminal activities. Some harassing bystanders on the streets like mugging at the alley, some help robbers to getaway from the police, and whatever that will make them criminals. Those sadistic fools, their obsession to modify cars from normal to cop magnets, always becoming the "new normal" on the streets. I just hope that there is a law that will get rid of modified cars on the streets but sadly it's a bit of a mixed reactions because sometimes nobody's BOVVERED what to do with a modified car on the streets.
Sometimes, just because it's modified does not mean it's street legal. Those shows like the SEMA Show, Essen Motor Show, Manila Auto Salon, Tokyo Auto Salon, those legal kinds of shows that showcasing modified cars in a polite and nice way. Even the carmakers themselves are modifying their cars for the show, you know what I'm saying?
Anyway, back to the story of boy racers because as far as I know it, it seems that boy racers are becoming more of terrorists born at the streets rather than being a typical driver who relies on his/her fellow drivers, signs, traffic rules, and anything safe. Those government issues that race tracks are better and safer alternative to illegally sanctioned street racing but those high-speed rogues often prefer the streets better than the racetracks and what they always do is switch streets in case of cops patrolling through the streets. Those guys never really learn do they. It's like migrating to another habitat after another in case of temperature changes. If those speedo boys find something that is not yet known by the cops yet, then they consider it as a hotspot for illegal racing right until moments later when concerned citizens are receiving complaints about this, the police will patrol and then those crooks switch to another. You can run but you can't hide from the law, speedo boys. No matter how many times you've switched places, the cops are going to get you and even more aggressive. You've been warned...
Those young men need more experience behind the wheel. They should learn how to stop such "barbaric" acts on the road and most importantly, learn to race on a proper racetrack, not on the streets, which every night claims their lives due to dangerous drivings. To you, you think that the highways are your racetrack but authorities said NO. Those highways and city streets are not made for racing. There are speed limits and signs everywhere to pay attention. Please follow road signs, okay? You are driving a car in a good way, not on a barbaric way that not only kills you, but others as well.
I'm 21 years old, maybe 22 when it hits my birthday on the 15th next month. I took driving lessons three times and I was saving for another one or better yet, saving for the driving license I was dreaming for. I promised myself that I will not act like a barbarian on the road ahead and I promise that I should be a better, safer driver on the road and I can only race...on the racetrack...if I had a racing license for a track day at a nearby racetrack. He he he....Anyway, as for you speedo boys, let this be your New Year's Resolution to all. No more like that please. Drive safely and race only on the racetracks, not on the road.
Have a happy 2013, everyone!
