* '''Deconstructed''': Cars are no longer used as transport -- everyone takes the subway because they're afraid of blowing up. Car races still exist, but they're a DeadlyGame played by {{Condemned Contestant}}s, because every minor collision results in a fireball. Veteran players are almost all covered in horrific burn scars from the past wrecks they miraculously survived.
* '''Reconstructed''': Even though cars have been banned by a government worried about the death toll, illicit gangs of petrolheads still drive at top speed along clifftops, driving convertibles and wearing parachutes.
