QOTD: Will Gymkhana Cross the Line?

qotd will gymkhana cross the line

Earlier today we ran our " video of the week" and it was about Travis Pastrana's recent rip-roaring run across Florida -- all tailor-made for YouTube.

Naturally, I have to wonder if someday someone will get hurt doing this. Yes, there's a lot of money involved here, and I assume that safety is a huge priority -- and having a lot of money on hand sure helps to ensure safety -- but at some point, a line may be crossed or something may simply go wrong.

What say you, B and B? Is this sort of thing harmless, safe entertainment or is it pushing too far?

    The roads were closed down and the stunts were done by pros. All good by me.

      Yup. Everyone knows the risks.

    The problem is not the pros, it's the idiots who try and copy what the pros are doing in these staged and edited videos.
