Because there is nothing better than 3 tonnes of metal and plastic exceeding speeds over 80 mpH while pit maneuvers are executed with nail biting on the the edge of your seat hype!

Que in epic movie intro music

In a world where the meaning of rules of the road are completely thrown to the side, and one man decides to take the law in his own hands.


I'm getting excited just thinking about dammit........ but seriously I have no idea, I guess people like to see crashes, and people getting hurt because of it. The world's a pretty sick place man, but God dam you will never be bored, entertainment until the very end my friends.

Humms, I'd agree with you, but after living just outside Los Angeles where the OP is from I can tell you that the majority of the chases are not high speed, nor do they end with crashes. Unless they're presenting a clear and present danger to other drivers or pedestrians of some kind the police just follow them until they run out of gas or stop and run on foot or give up. It's about as boring as watching the OJ Simpson low speed chase.

I Understand That Much, I Was Just Going For Dramatic Effect I'm sure they are more of a nuisance than anything when they do happen, just some over stimulated people who have every right not to stop in their mind, or people who actually drive off for a reason. I mean nobody is really going to risk their life and still go to jail unless you're just plain stupid, but people like stupid, so I guess at least someone enjoys to watch it unfold.

Personally, I think some of the people who do it around Los Angeles do it for publicity and to get on TV... there's no such thing as "bad publicity" if you are trying to get into show business.
