it sounds like slavery to me, because people are forced to work and do not get any wages. A workforce for the government should be paid at least minimum wage, and not be on welfare which comes with a lot of other restrictions. The system asks a LOT in return for welfare... more than a job, in my dutch experience.

nah.. 99% of the fun is the crashes. F1 is too safe to be fun any more, and the competition itself is NEVER shown. get rid of the races, put the cars on a roller setup to see who built the fastest car, and show us the construction process. because it's not about the driver. it's about the cars and how they're built.

the currently known tests do not test for high, impairment or being under the influence. They test whether there is THC in the blood or saliva. This is the reason why this test is not used in the Netherlands. The law clearly states that driving under the influence of marihuana is not allowed, but that is not something these tests can show.

In my experience in the Netherlands, cyclists have pretty good respect for the laws. Car-drivers though... that's another thing. even a basic rule like the maximum speed seems too hard to understand for most, and that's with the very loose control of the maximum speed. you are even allowed to break the maximum speed legally. drive 125 km/h where 120 km/h is the limit, and you will not get fined.
