Boy racers “over-estimate their own abilities”, according to a Trinity College Professor

This boffin says that a young man
May drive faster than he safely can
And adding some friends
To the car only tends
To shorten the average life span

    But there’s no need to pour on the shame
    ain’t it all just a video game?
    With lots of loud noises
    and some nasty surprises
    But then reset and do it again?

    …Or have I missed something?

    Natural risk takers. There’s massive benefits to that fact, in terms of development of the species. But it can be detrimental on an individual level.

    Also true of old-boy racers, and I’m looking at you, shouty Audi-driving horn-blower on the Merrion Road bus lane.
