This taken from the guy who now holds the record for the fastest lap of Manhattan (emphasis mine):
Being a good driver, you’re more aware of what is around you. Being a fast driver doesn’t mean that you’re inherently a bad or reckless driver. Like I said before, I’m in control. That said, understand traffic patterns, understand what’s around you and understand how others control or don’t control their cars.
Amen. I suspect the people who equate speed with recklessness are the same idiots who equate going out with getting plastered and doing drugs. A good driver focused on the road at 100 is safer than most people at 50. This man is a national hero, more power to you Sir.
