Reckless driving

TWO nights ago the spectacle of youth zooming at breakneck speeds in their sports cars down the main road in Ras Al Khaimah was as thrilling as it was disturbing. Police spotted their violations of the speed limits, but it was evident that there is a need for a car racing club which would provide these youth a safe environment to develop their 'formula one' talents.

Many inquiries have been made why the government has not established a sports club with facilities for learning car racing. These youth need an outlet to release their explosive energies. Rather than driving their cars on the main roads, which may cause horrible accidents, they should be trained on designated fast tracks.

We call upon the government to establish such a club to encourage youth. This way, their lives and that of the people will be safeguarded. Car racing is well known all over the world. A good exponent was car racing champ Mohammed bin Sleem, the Emirati champion of the Middle East many years ago.
