Americans continue to show how completely out of touch with the real world they are.
For example, they believe that in order to protect themselves from some unknown "perceived" threat requires assault rifles and 100 round ammo cartridges to do the job. They then express shock and dismay when mass shootings occur.
It seems that there are also those who believe that driving vehicles capable of doing 240 mph on city streets, and then are shocked when someone loses their life in a pile of mangled metal.
Speed was a factor in the crash, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office said. A 45 mph speed limit sign was attached to the light pole knocked down by the Porsche.
The car, which sold for $450,000 when new, is a notoriously difficult vehicle to handle, even for professional drivers, according to Autoweek magazine. A top driver called it "scary," the magazine reported Sunday. It is powered by a V-10, 610-hp engine.
