NASCAR announced today a new rule saying, unless there is an emergency, the driver of a disabled car is to stay in the car until directed to exit by track personnel, and at no time should a driver approach another moving vehicle. Obviously this is in reaction to Kevin Ward's death after he exited his car and approached Tony Stewart's oncoming car.
So what do think about this? Is it NASCAR's too-late attempt to cover it's legal butt since it seems to be a no-brainer that should have been in the rules all along? Or is it blaming the victim, essentially saying Mr. Ward would still be alive had he stayed in his car?
