When it comes to petrolkoppe, you have two main camps.
First group is doing it for the style and the other group is doing it for the power and speed.
The style guys stiek uit at the Show ‘n Shines to display their creations, while the power crews can be found at the track or on the spin pitch.
Neither crew does it on public roads, because they have learned to respect themselves and their cabbies.
Speeding on public roads is one of the most unnecessary life-threatening things to do in an already dangerous world.
Guys and girls who understand cars know that the faster you go, the easier it is to lose control and the less time you have to react to the unexpected.
The faster you go, the more the odds are against you. On the track, care needs to be taken, so how much more so when on a public road?
Policing speedsters is tricky, but do we really need to be policed to develop good sense?
Yes, young males in particular like to show off in front of friends and get a thrill driving fast, but there is a place for that: it’s called the track.
Too many people believe that going over the speed limit is not a problem, but most are fairly ignorant about stopping distances, correct braking and proper traction. As they say, it’s not the speed that kills, it’s the sudden stop.
