When running over pedestrians, do you have to declare how many dice you are rlling before rolling any dice, or can you roll some dice, see that you didn't roll enough to succeed, then spend more crds to continue rolling more dice?

You must declare before you roll.

My son and I played this recently with a friend, and we all noted how difficult it is to run over a pedestrian without spending a number of rally cards. Really, at 100 MPH what chance do most pedestrians stand of avoiding a car? Perhaps this is just another way to get players to use their rally cards up in order to keep their hands fresh.

I don't think the pedestrians are actually standing in the middle of the road. They are probably on the sidewalk, and the drivers have to go out of their way to knock them over.

Also, it's harder than most people think to hit a target, even a stationary one, at high speed.

Think of spending rally cards as making an effort to hit the pedestrian. If you're not spending any cards, you're not really making an effort to hit them. You might still succeed if they're standing still in the middle of the lane, but you probably won't unless you actually try to steer toward them.

More rally cards = More effort
