The Thrill of a Revving Engine

Malek Allari | Editor in Chief

Now, everyone knows that speed kills. Speeding in a car can be dangerous, and we know that because we see them on the news, YouTube, and other social media platforms that can send out the message or a scene of a car crash due to speeding. However, why do people speed? Is it because they are just crazy and want to get their heart racing? Or is it some kind of healing ritual they practice “safely”?

It is impossible to practice speeding safely, for it will be fatal with the slightest mistake. However, some people speed up their mental health. It is some kind of therapy in which they close everything around them and drive away their problems. There are people who see it as an escape from reality, an escape from all the pain that you leave behind and can only see through the rearview mirror. This is a group of people who speed for good.

Others speed for their pleasure. They find joy and sweetness in the dangerous sport of speeding. They find a musical tune in a revving engine. They find a thrill in competition between two or more cars going at felony speeds. However, they will either end up safe and in one piece or dead in a car crash.

Now the thrill of the revving engine comes from its safety and speed of the therapy, as well as the pleasure that comes with it. They should open racing circuits to the public, and people can book times and slots where they can go and speed. That way, if there were to be a fatal crash, no one would be hurt except for the driver.

Speeding is dangerous, and everyone knows it. But does everyone know the thrill that comes at a hundred miles per hour? Does everyone see the view from inside a car that is going at high speed while everyone looks slow? No matter how much care someone sped, there will come a day when they will meet a dead end that could result either in injury or death. Speed kills, but life is too short of taking it thirty-five miles per hour.
