It can be worse...let me preface this by saying
I was in the passenger seat and was scared
Two friends of mine were taking their cars out.
One had an old 5 series and the other and old
7 series and they started racing .... one in the
right lane and one in the left lane of a 3 lane
road. The car I was riding in got up to somewhere
between 125 and 130 mph before the oil pressure
shot. He killed the engine and saved it but the
point is obvious..... people doing 55 in the
middle lane and we were more than doubling their
speed. Someone could turn around and look before
changing lanes and in the time between looking
and changing we could have been up on them.
Very dangerous. needless to say I don't
plan to ride with them like that again!
Happy to still be here.
