"top-gun" dick moves belong on the race track, not public highways.
Actually they don't belong on the racetrack* either. From public driving events up through LeMans and F1, if you drive recklessly there are repercussions. Either a penalty or a wall. You still get to drive as fast as you want, just as long as you're in control.
