Looking for some weekend fun? How about you grab a long skateboard, drive up the largest hill you can find and then lay down on your board and luge your way down to the bottom without brakes along the same road you just came up? No? Well, that’s what street
lugers do, more or less. Most who partake is this sport wear helmets and leather suits to prevent too much damage – but that’s no guarantee that whoever is driving up or down the road is going to see you and stop. Wiping out can result in serious injury, and being run over by a car can (shockingly) lead to death. Some of these brave fools hit estimated speeds of 90 MPH. There are places where you can participate in this sport on closed roads – which seems like a better idea to us.
