Glad the 86 is slow: Keep the Dodge Demon off our roads

Anon and I know nothing about this publication. Good thing the 86 is not a murder-machine, though. I feel much safer when the ass end is coming around after reading this.

Keep the Dodge Demon off our roads

From its barely legal slick tires to its monstrous acceleration, the Challenger Demon introduced in New York this month is the result of a sequence of misguided corporate choices that places bragging rights ahead of public safety.

I am with you!

There are hundreds of thousands of modified cars driving the streets right now that have a similar power to weight ratio. Many of them are slapped together by people that have no clue as what the changes have done to the car and are simply accidents waiting to happen. If a car that is properly designed and engineered to handle that power and is targeted at a group that knows how to actually handle it is banned then they need to ban all power mods for all cars.

Let's lobby to ban all Ferraris, Mustangs, Corvettes, Lambos and anything else faster than a VW Beetle and keep everybody safe.

Will a couple of asshats buy them and wreck dramatically? Sure they will, but there have been loads of dramatic wrecks with stock Twins so what is the difference?

Cars are driven by people. It's the driver that needs to be held responsible for his actions; whatever the car's capability is.

As much as I think the car is stupid... I don't agree with banning the car.

exactly, theres hundreds of thousands of fast cars driven by people who ant handle it and i can kill someone with a Prius as fast as a demon. not to mention the demon will be a limited production bought by people with some money and probably spend most of its time in a garage whereas the frs/brs is a cheap sports car that can be purchased by young high school teens and I'm much more worried about some 17 year old trying to drift and hitting me then the chances on me seeing a demon much less getting into an accident with one.

Fuck that noise, I'd rather see 1/5 cars on the road being shiny new Dodge Demons than the typical 10 year old SUV still on the bald OE tires and factory fill of brake fluid tailgating me.

There are many many more dangerous cars on the road than a Dodge Demon.

Jalopnik theorized it was paid by FCA to whip up interest.

Well personally I don't mind if they ban all Dodge cars from the road lol j/k.

Seriously though, it's all about the driver's ability, not the car's. Not to go off topic, but the the on-road "test" to get your driver's license (at least in Georiga) is a pathetic joke. It doesn't force the driver to demonstrate ANY ability to actually 'drive' a car on an actual road.

I knew a friend's kid/teenager who practiced 'steering' (not driving) a car through an empty parking lot... When he went to get his driver's license ONE WEEK LATER, he passed the "driving" portion of the test with flying colors because that's basically what the driving test is: 'steering' the car very slowly through some stupid cones on a small parking lot.

Today in Atlanta, there were 2 more fatal accidents involving teenagers (driving with passengers) in a collision with another car... And I couldn't help but wonder if they had a stricter standard to get your license, would these teenagers still be alive today? I know a stricter test won't prevent all accidents, but I think it'll help eliminate A LOT of needless wrecks.
