5 people in an accord going 200kph

This trend will never end, 2 bad accidents in Vancouver last weekend from street racing. The police cant be on every corner and the punishment still is not slowing anyone down

Right repin, but, I would feel much safer in my car at 200kph then in a riced out 1995 Honda Accord sedan.

I saw a picture of it in the paper, it was riced out good and proper, big ol 18 in rims, no sidewall on the tires, bald as a 90 year old man.

Still sad tho, what a waste

The QEW is scary enough at 100 (that rare time you can actually hit 100 on it), so I can only imagine what he was thinking when doing 200km/h.

Some people'* kids..

I drive limos part time even though I am from Buffalo I take people up clubbing in Toronto. On a Saturday night all you see are ricers flying on the QEW. I have seen many close calls. Rarely do you see any cops. The flow of traffic is going over the speed limit. They need to crack down on the joyriders. It'* bad enough that they are ricers!

My times on the QEW were both at 120-140kph... just to keep up w/ traffic.

It'* always horrible to lose a life.... I bet the driver (and others) wish it was him dead and not a back seat passanger.

:(
