I'm sorry for your loss David. Our prayers go out to you and Ryans family and friends.
When I was young, I too drove fast at times. The times were limited as so were vehicles I was able to drive. My brushes with high speed were few and far between though they did happen. I suppose it is a crap shoot as to which result in the fatal accident and which don't. I had been lucky.
We shouldn't press our luck.
I'd like to see all of us continue to be on this forum for a long, long time.
Let's all drive safe, and keep your wits about you.
