Well another Redneck act of stupidity has resulted in an 8 year old girl dying in a Drag-Racing event.


The "news" here in Perth, has just reported that she's alive.

WTF?

The poor little kid -
she was just trying to have some fun.

Those cars only have tiny engines - how the hell did she die?


Concrete barrier (which is cheap).

They need to install wire rope barriers.





But how could she steer into it?

Maybe there was a fault in the car?


Not the point.

If they had wire-rope barriers, she'd still be alive.

She died because the complex wanted to save money.

Sad.



I can assure you that the safety regulations set down by ANDRA
are very strict.


Concrete barriers are not safe.

Wire-rope barriers save lives.

This poor child died because of cost-cutting.



All race tracks should have large sand filled run-off areas.

Our 5 pm report - one hour ago - said she was fighting for life in hospital.

Disgusting!

Poor little girl.
Put her faith in Daddy, that everything will be fine.
Daddy put his faith in her to one day become a world champion (because you got to start them younger, to get the edge - like a prodigy) and make him $$$$$$$

Another kid dead - because parents 'push the envelope' (and hope there is money inside ...in the end).

She went to Hospital in a critical condition.
Pretty much mangled up.
But of course, she eventually died.
Bad accident. To 'bad' an accident to deny that these dragsters and the surrounding environment are too dangerous.
Even dangerous for adults.

It's a very dangerous sport -
I think the drivers are a bit crazy.
This is the best video I've ever seen
but these cars are for adults not toy dragsters for kids:

Listen to you lot. How many kids or even adults die drag racing? It'a pretty sad thing to have happen but do you have any idea how many kids do this, speedway, gokarts etc? As someone said, compare that to getting on something as unpredictable as a horse. When I was in primary school a kid got killed playing cricket, hit in the head by a ball. Nothing is without risk.

Greg, if they put up wire like they do on freeways can you imagine what would happen when an adult in a car that does a 3.5 second 1/4 hits one? Shredded cheese comes to mind. The thought reminds me of the guy when I was a late teen in Perth that missed a bend at high speed on a bike on Scarborough Beach Road in Mt Hawthorn and went through a chain link fence. Through being the operative word there.

Why do people enter the danger zones of life?

It's because they place more value on fun and thrill.

Safety will always be the trade off.

The parents of this little girl have a lot to answer for.

As regards the little girl herself.....

RIP little angel ♡♡♡

Life has quite enough risk thank you very much. 

Without adding MORE to it.

Those parents were foolish!

Why?

That little girl should never have been placed in such a high risk position by them.
