Default Street Race with Baby in Car

On my way home from a car show, a black Mazda hatch with a turbo pulls up next to me at a traffic light. He wants to race. I look over and there is a baby seat in the back with a 3 year old kid in it. The light turns green and I drove off slowly. The Mazda pulls right next to me, revving and trying to get me to run with him. I kept going slow. He took off fast and eventually turned off onto a side street. Father of the year award?

I decided to sell my SRT-4 one week after I drove it up to 100 mph with my wife and son in the car. He was about 3 years old at the time, my wife immediately yelled at me (something about me killing myself if I wanted, but not killing her and my son at the same time, lol ) I wasn't racing anyone, I was the only car in the area at the time, and I just accelerated quickly on a long straight of a local highway. It only took a few seconds to go from 50-100 mph in that car, 350 whp at the time with mild mods. I then decided that I needed to buy a slower car. I purchased my S2000 right after that and never looked back. I still love the SRT-4's though.

I was in the same situation. A mk3 supra 1jz was messing with me on the highway. I saw a booted seat in the back with a little boy. I wasn't going to run but he kept "insisting". We ran it twice going 120+. Yep, not the best thing on my part, his especially
