You have to accept some amount of potential injury just as a race watcher.
Well, you can't ban blocking so you need a better fence. Not such a big expense in the scheme. If a track owner can net $20 or 30 million per race, they can make a better fence. The Safer barrier was about racers. The catch fences are about fans.
