I love speed can cars, but I don’t like putting other people’s lives in such intimate danger like squeezing between cars in traffic like that.
The only reason justifiably to call the police is if your life was in Intimate danger.
I usually only worry about my friends when they are on a quest or in intimate danger.
Re: possible eggcornish meaning connection—Uh, maybe people are thinking of intimacy as being dangerous, or as being a kind of closeness not too different from imminence? Or maybe it’s just a non-eggcornish substitution.
