I gunned it to get around 'em and BOOM, the cop was on my butt immediately. I had no idea where he'd come from! I pulled to the right lane and slowed down, but he just went around me. Yep... I felt VERY lucky. :kooky:

Rapid Acceleration is called exhibition of speed. Its a pretty big ticket in some states

Hey SinCity!

I'm heading out to the Oasis Hand Car Wash (Flamingo at Pecos/McLeod) in a little while... Probably hit the vacuums at about 9 a.m.

If I see you there, I'll wave.

IDK how it is anywhere else, but here in Florida theres mad street racing on Saturday and Sunday nights around midnight on Gandy Bridge and another bridge, people are lined up all along the road with their cars parked everywhere, and sportbikes flyin by etc etc.. its no wonder the law was passed that if you're caught street racing, go straight to jail, lose your car, and get fined a HEFTY amount..

the family and i just got back from florida a few weeks ago. disney world and cocoa beach. i tell you what, orange county sheriffs dept must be friggin huge. i swear we saw 20 units + the FHP on the way down the turnpike and the highways to cape canavaral. cops everywhere on that pike, and they were all pressing hard. i also took notice that the florida turnpike is about the smoothest road i have ever driven on. but i sooned learned why, as there is a toll booth every 2 friggin miles!! it was also VERY hard to drive 55 on that pike when i am used to OK's 75 mph pikes and 70 mph interstates... florida was nice though, will go back sometime... definately no tolerance for traffic infractions!!!

Pretty messed up

"It shows that government at higher levels is taking this seriously."
In February, a 23-year-old Edmonton man died in a similar incident when he lost control of his car during a race on Yellowhead Trail.

First off the goverment doesnt take anything seriously! Secondly the 23 year old man was my older brother Scott Chouinard and he was in a car accident but it was not proven to be a race! Actually the police say it was someone who pushed his car off the road! Im not saying my brother never raced cars but still.... and to the person who said u just wouldnt lose control off your car you know what sometime **** happens! Drinking and driving racing whatever is dumb and the legal limit to dirve should be 19 your not aloud to drink or smoke until your 19 so why should you be able to operate a viechle. people are dumb and they need to take driving more seriously and then maybe there wouldnt be so many deaths on the road!

Saw this posted on another forum....can't verify validity ;

"Since you guys brought it up. We had the Rev-It-Up event here last weekend. They were charging $10 for a hot lap in a Z06 Corvette. On one lap, the cars brakes faded away. The pro driver (with a paying spectator) crashed at an obscene speed. The car went completely sideways, crashed into a cub, a fire hydrant (which landed over 100 ft away), a pole, and a tree before exploding into flames. Luckily there were only minor injuries (don't ask me how).

The event is - http://www.revitupracing.com"
