I quite agree with you, you cant force people to man up and do the right thing, specially those who dont admit their fault and always blame something for their stupidity....... Would you consider someone going to college a teenager?

even if you start multiple threads trying to embarrass them into responsibility?

I can understand there are risks involved while riding at the track, so what happens at the track stays at the track, on the other hand, pit lanes are supposed to be a risk free safe zone for everyone, if you respect the rules when coming into the pits, you should be fine but there are those that feel like Rossi just because they have done a couple of track days and comes full speed into the pits causing damage to other riders that was not riding at the track at all

how about you just lay out there, the thing that is stuck in your craw?
That way we can pick sides and choose who we think the is.
Nothing will change but we can all feel better about ourselves.

who said pit lane was supposed to be risk free? If the other riders were not even riding the track, they should have been no where near pit lane.

Most track day junkies are in advanced group and unlikely to hit you unless you check up too hard to run off your line. If you are doing either you don't belong in A/Lvl3.

Not saying accidents (or idiots) don't happen- just don't like your analogy.

I kinda agree, the unpredictability of an accident at the track is always there, either your fault or another riders fault. that could be pitlane, on a turn, exiting a corner, anything could happen, I believe a riders comfortability can get the best of him when he/she gets a head of themselfs and BOOM it happens..

Don't mind him, he has an anti-track agenda that he wants to throw out at every chance.

Because he thinks that people that do track days have an agenda against street. When in actuality they just have an issue with treating the street like its a trackday...

He wants people to call him cool just because he is a out street rider in the straights

yea I would kind of like to know what's up- because pit accidents and track accidents are entirely different.

again.. I'm not saying accidents or idiots don't happen- but I've had plenty of near-clips going through the pit lanes. It's hot, I'm trying to get out of this effing suit thats suffocating me- some other guy is ready to roll and trying to get to the pit-out... just gotta keep your eyes up.

I'd pay for it. Like i said - if you're riding like a complete ...

Accidents on the track are going to happen. To some extent that's part of the game. However, if you caused the accident by being a douchenozzle, then yeah, you should pay up.
