    things falling from above is an assumed risk in rock climbing. Someone barreling down the road at 170 on a public road is not

    under your theory that no one can see if a flat open highway has other vehicles on it.
    you would need to actually understand the theory to comment on it

    Really? Then that needs to change right there. My dad used to get access back in the day back in TX, and here in SoCal the autocross still does, so do the gokarts, I know cuz I video 'em. I don't go into the roundyrounds but I assumed if they lease out their parking lots, they'd lease that out still also.

    There is no "assumed risk" a person accepts that a rock loosened by a rock climber or the rock climber him/herself is going to fall on you.

    Your "theory" is that drivers can't see open land, but rock climbers always are looking downward to see if anyone is below them on the ground?

    What I am saying is you can't just go to a race track, say "I have a 200 mph production car and want to drive around your track" and do so. Years ago maybe. Not anymore. "Liabilities." Even drag racing tracks now have limits.

    I go to Chicago 12-14 times a year. Most of the craziness I encounter is on I-57 North going up there through Illinois.

    Write a ticket for the 170 mph and points against her license.

    Oh I see where you're going, and #1 I assume someone will call and make arrangements, proper insurance, etc, just as the autocrossers and go-karters have to. #2- cars on the roundyround are way in excess of 200, iirc, these days, so it shouldn't be an issue.

    Damn those old folks for that crap of equal treatment under the law. Get the damn rich people! Take their money! I don't know why they don't run all remaining rich people and their companies out of the USA. That is being done TOO SLOWLY! No one should tolerate ANYONE who make more than a 5 figure income or drives a vehicle worth more than $30K. Everyone in the USA should have exactly the same income, exactly the same savings, the same size housing and exactly the same amount of money, plus identical value cars.

    You talked about people doing anything they wanted..
    That is inclusive of their car crashing at a high rate of speed with only them losing their lives, so yes costing insurance companies..
    I can see exceptions, but there are few in terms of self endangerment.
    Are those okay with the stability of the family--medical, emotional, etc .
    Which is more self endangering?
    going 40 is twice as much as 20 in velocity, but FOUR times the KINETIC ENERGY..
