barely enough difference to draw a conclusion that driving to slow is worse.
Especially since this is a US survey, and not Canadian
Well, street racing is arguably a bigger problem in the U.S than it is here, so if anything the percentage of street racing fatalities in canada would be lower.
But regardless that's not the point. The point is that there is always such a big deal made of street racing, when in reality it's not as big a problem as the media and governments make it out to be, and certainly not a big enough problem to warrant buying millions of dollars worth of planes, and introducing laws that are almost as harsh as some drunk driving charges. Then after all that, using that law to catch people who are NOT even street racing, and handing out millions in fines to 80 year old mom and pop driving to the bank.
