Saudi Arabia: Extreme sports

American Bedu asks why the Saudi government doesn't control extreme sports, and shows two videos of racing as an example: “The Japanese version is done on proper tracks design to minimize injuries, the spectators are out of harm’s way, cars with cages to protect the driver, and most importantly the drivers wear their seat belt and helmet. The Saudi version none of these safety precaution are taken. The result is fatality accidents in Saudi.”
