Honestly guys. If he street races, it's his choice.

No one from the internet is going to affect his decisions.

I swear every time someone does something that some people don't like then everyone gets pissed off.

I have been stopped as well. It's called 'Racing on the highway' here and is defined as this according to the officer...

'Two vehicles, speeding, next to eachother.'

We were pulled over for 85 in a 65, and given that. I'm not denying I was doing something wrong and accepted the consequences. I'll be the first one to admit I'm in the wrong, and I know the consequences. I don't 'street race' as like Fast and the Furious, sometimes we just mess around on the freeway. I don't go to the 'street races' with start and finish lines and high school kids doing stupid crap. Just keep in mind there is a difference. But like I said, thanks for the input. Just thought I would share some videos with everyone. Just keep your advice in mind when you roll stop, speed, don't use signals, etc...sorry for the rant.

Sure it's his choice, but wait until someone gets hurt or killed.

It's going to suck sitting in the slammer for the rest of your life.

enlighten me on the difference between "messing around" on the freeway, and the street races? last time i knew, there is no difference, you are breaking the law in both cases, and its dangerous... i do admit, i have been out to the street races, and i have been pulled over for racing on the streets, and i got real lucky on my case as the officer had gotten called out on a homicide case... i consider myself really lucky

Have you ever broke the speed limit? Changed lanes without using a signal? I could go on and on. There was no traffic in the second video and hardly any in the first, we aren't out there traffic weaving and flooring it through rush hour. But thanks for your input. I didn't want this to turn into a you are the devil because you 'street race' thread, oh well.

Yes, I have broken the speed limit, usually keep it 5 over. One of my trucks I have to run 5 over (speed limit is 55) because it will jump between 4th gear and OD if I run at the speed limit.

I always use my turn signals, wear my seat belt, check my mirrors about every 6 seconds. I can go on too....

Interesting, so...the fact that speeding is responsible for 15 percent of fatal crashes includes you as well.

Hard to believe that you have used your signal 100 percent of the time as well.

The real danger is driving under the influence, which causes over 40 percent of the nations fatal crashes per year.

I don't want to turn this into a finger pointing thread or whatever, we all break the laws of the road...some just don't think they are as bad as others, just because they aren't doing it that much.

You should know the difference, instead you are blinded by this witch hunt.

By your post, there is no difference between the street races and not using a turn signal right? We can both agree that both are dangerous and illegal.

We are messing around on a mostly empty highway, with no cars around. As you know, at the ricer races(street races)...kids with their Hondas and such car surf, drift, do crazy burnouts, have tons of spectators on 5 feet from the cars, people going every which way, high schoolers leaning out on the street to see more of the action, alcohol, drugs, inexperienced drivers, etc. Sound the same?

How bout this...whats the difference between street racing, highway speeding, putting on makeup, reading the newspaper, texting, getting a hummer, changing the station on the radio, or any of the other things we ALL do behind the wheel from time to time.

So, if you don't like what he does, don't read the thread. And, if you don't like what he does, and it really gets under your skin, PM him. But for petes sake, don't keep hijacking threads!

Rant over!
Thread hijack finished! :)
