    Realistically, 100 is going to kill people if you're driving like an asshole. But I agree, I am not sure that $2,500 is going to deter people that much. I think there could be an argument made that drunk driving is worse than excessive speeding, but the punishment should be similar for first offense, so long as it is enforced.

    Funny how we all get 15 years older, and change from either being that guy, or being friends with that guy, to now shitting on him.

    I've gone that fast, and faster on public roads. It's neither right, legal, nor safe, but I can assure you, MANY/MOST of us have done things equally as stupid when we were younger. He got what he deserved. Idiot, yes, but most of us were at that age too...

    I can assure you at 27 I was not racing around the streets like an idiot. At 18-23 yeah I did some stupid shit...certainly never faster than that, my Z24 limiter was 170

    Edit: regarding the stupid shit I did end up doing, I was a fucking idiot. No bias.

    I tend to agree. 27 isn't the age where young and dumb is a valid excuse :o
