I personally never speed when there's traffic, so from where i look at it i never endanger others. And i don't think people from Bullrun in general do either.

My mistake then, I thought your statement on how fun it is, meant that you enjoy doing it yourself.

I don't consider bullrun dangerous, and playing Cat and Mouse with cops that should be chasing murderers instead is what makes it fun.

With how many people are killed by vehicles everyday... You may become one doing that... It is all fun and games until you murder someones loved ones....

I don't think you are getting what I'm saying, or you don't want to understand it. In any case believe what you may.

Look, the law is the law, i get it. But I consider myself to have good judgement enough to decide for myself and not have to follow rules like a robot. and if i have a misjudgment (never happened driving), I am ready to pay for it.

Let me explain, a '70s pickup truck doing 80mph IS dangerous, to himself and others. A german car?, not at all. As long as there's little traffic and it's an experienced driver.

I get pissed off at cops that pull people over who are speeding safely, just to make money off of them. Why don't they go fuc.king patrol Oakland or something like that instead?.

Bullrun isn't run in high traffic areas, and that amount of police attention is bull$hit and all they want is to make money off of them. And if you didn't notice, there is a police officer asking for $100 dollar bribe on that video

(Bullrun is the drive they are attending on the video)

I didn't watch the video all the way through, but if it is when they were driving the ford GT, there are some states where you can pay a fine on the spot on not get a ticket. just an fyi

I believe that's called a bribe.


As for the super speeders thing - why don't they just play the tollgate game from NFS: Most Wanted (e.g. get from one tollgate to another in the minimum amount of time)?

Because breaking the law and endangering innocent people is way more fun...
