    … so long as you’re in organized motor sport, you are free to cross-hair fellow competitors, to include the singling-out and running down of helpless pedestrians, save who may. A professional bloodsport, the only place human beings are wholly unencumbered by constraint of financial responsibility, and impervious to common law, on any recognized organized motor sport facility you may help yourself, nurfing fellow competitors, corner marshals or by-standards to their death, and if need be next lap around, back over him, and finish the job, with little to no consequence to yourself, whatsoever. Of course, the most important thing you must always remember thereafter is, whensoever expose to the glare of media exposure, to have audacity and wherewithal to exclaim how no words are sufficient to describe how overcome you are, with great sadness over this terrible accident. It works like clockwork, without fail, every single time… — asj.

    This is truly a tragedy. As a weekend racer, we all know that during any accident you are supposed to remain in your car until help arrives. This is of course, if this is your safest option (not unless the car is on fire or you are upside down with fuel filling your helmet), which in most situations having the roll cage between you and your competitors is your safest option. I was in a race a while back in which a competitor and myself were racing very hard and aggressively. Unfortunately I blew a tire and clipped him making him spin out. Though there were emotions running high we followed protocol and he waited to vent his frustrations with me until we were in the pits. Though things were heated, we both understood it was racing and the hard feelings were left at the track that night. Unfortunately while heading home from the track I was involved in an auto accident that ended my racing career that night. I was struck by another vehicle and then instead of following my training to stay in the car I got out not knowing I had broken my back so severely. Now, I am an advocate for knowing what to do when you are in any kind of vehicular accident. Drivers have their codes but most people in this world are not racing drivers and have no clue what to do. I found a great article my attorney wrote in their blog. It is an easy 8 items to remember. Please read this and drive safe.

  3. Today we can’t expect what will really happens in our daily activities in LIFE. Therefore, better be safe, than regret and feel sorrow. And for safety of these students, your child, or maybe your relative. I would suggest emergency safety service that everyone can carry all days.
