Something to open our eyes a little.

SRT-4 Accident

While this isn't a mazda, I think its something that we should all see to remind us to be careful, and to think about our actions.

Stay safe everyone.

That kid is definitely lucky to be alive.... I know the thrill of going fast, but that makes you take a good hard look at the way you drive.....

Props to the guy for making the video, but I find it kind of sad that so many morons need a reminder to not be a jackoff.

Re: Something to open our eyes a little.

+1, Plus I don't get why parents buy or let their kids have sports cars. Don't get me wrong, any car has the potential be dangerous, but by getting them a car like an SRT is just asking for your kid to drive like a dip-o. Stupid ass parents.....

Re: Something to open our eyes a little.

As rude, ignorant, .. as mean as what i'm about to may sound; we all know it's the truth.

Natural selection.

Seriously.


If you aren't willing to think about the consequences of what you're doing.. don't do it.

Accidents happen, yes. Not thinking.. also happens.

When coming back from the Epic East Coast Mazda Meet last month, one other guy and I were going down a highway and at one point on the right was a whole mess of police, fire, ambulances, everything; skidmarks and a golden ford exploder upside down, no windows, mud everywhere.. guy was standing there next to it. All of his stuff littered down the road.

For starters, seat belts save lives; even when I pull my car out of our garage to wash it a whole car length back I catch myself putting on my seatbelt; it's a good habbit. I never let anyone sit in my car without a seatbelt on before I start it up. A car can do so much damage just idling going down a road; it doesn't seem like much, but a car moving at under 5mph can wreak havoc to anything in its path.


My drivers ed teacher made a good comment about what it's like to get in a high speed collision. For every 10mph you go, think of that as jumping off a story building; so if you're going 70mph, think of it as jumping off a 7 story building without a seatbelt on. Good Luck.


Hate me as much as you like for such a rude comment but for something you can control.. think; we hear it all the time! Think first before you speak, act, whatever the case. If it were something he couldn't control like a deer or something jumping out in front of him.. okay. But if you're going over the limit, you're already asking for it.


Driving anywhere any time is dangerous. People just don't understand how dangerous it can be. It doesn't have to be a fancy schmancy sports car.. people crash in average cars all the time.

If you are careful and understand the consequences, you won't do it.
Is the thrill fun? Maybe, but how fun is it having metal plates etc. in you for the rest of your life; or worse, leaving everyone you know and love behind; that's a mean thing to do to them.

Back when I was in highschool a friend of.. pretty much anyone that knew him died the night before his birthday. He wasn't wearing his seatbelt; his closest friends at our school were driving and they saw him die when they got in an accident because of a drunk driver.



Is it worth it. Really.

Re: Something to open our eyes a little.

Parents don't always buy their kids the car they drive. There are kids out there capable of affording their own car. But I agree with the above post. People really don't think when they drive. I admit, sometimes I drive a little crazy, but I am able to think about what could happen, so I make the smart decision not to continue driving like a douche. I work with a lot of high schoolers/high school graduates, and every time I leave work the same time as one of them, they are always driving like a banshee. Tailing me, racing me, just trying to look cool. It's not worth it. Trust me.

I had a junior tailing my ass one day in his shitty little civic. I couldn't see his headlights he was so close. What I did was slam on the brakes and he swirved and went up on the side walk. He doesn't drive like a complete douchebag anymore.

If my kid can afford a sports car and its insurance he can afford his own place.... Priorities first.
