We understand the itch some people might get when wanting to drift their cars, but there’s still that line between fun and dumb that you shouldn’t cross, especially when you begin to put other people’s car - and lives - at risk.
This video, courtesy of the folks from Need for Drive, illustrates that example perfectly. We get it: drifting is fun and it provides a thrill that not a lot of things can replicate.
However, it must also be done in a closed environment that doesn’t pose a threat to anybody who isn’t sitting behind the wheel of the car. Last time we checked, a busy city street isn’t the kind of place you should be doing something like this.
We’ve seen, heard, and read so many stories about road accidents brought about by sheer recklessness. Those things can be avoided and should be avoided at all costs.
The video is "fun" to watch, but you have to wonder how fun it would’ve been if these guys took out a car or, much worse, a person. There’s no fun in that.
Just a reminder to everyone to drift safely!
