Yeah, because in the example I gave, the road was littered with bystanders...or it was 5:30 am and we were the only two folks around as I indicated.
Also, if you're going to characterize two drivers flooring their cars out of a stop light in the same vein as street racing, well, more power to you. I read here constantly about people engaged in "spirited" driving, packing their cars (and motorcycles) into high speed curves, etc. I'm going to say glass houses, stones, etc. I mean, was not a pick of an M5 completely totaled just posted here? I see far more carnage from high speed driving than I do flooring it out of a stoplight.
However, I'm infantile, so take my observations with a grain of salt.
