Default exotics spotted!

in my travels today i spotted four gumball rally cars. one (Lambo) in the mid afternoon on the New Jersey parkway heading north, and three (one Ferrari, one Aston Martin or Jaguar - not sure, and one other - not able to i.d.) on rte 80 eastbound in NJ at pm rush hour. none of them seemed to be in any particular hurry, so i am assuming that maybe they are heading to the start line.

i'll be back....going to google "gumball rally".......

...http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.s...mball_300.html

....guess i was wrong about the "not in a hurry" thing.

sooooo why did the cop notify someone that a car was not breaking the law? Can you not be associated with the rally? I know the cops like to write tickets to groups of cars for "impeding traffic" when traveling in groups, which is gay, but this is extra gay.

Because more than likely they'll be breaking the law soon. I suppose it's good to know gumball rallys are going on in your area, and to keep your eyes open.
I'm torn. On the one hand, I think if I had the money, the exotic and time to waste, it'd be an absolute blast. On the other hand my sane self thinks it's moronic, dangerous, and stupid.

They were in Ontario last week. I heard that a Charger got a ticket for 140kmh in a 100. Then a few minutes later the same guy got a ticket for 170kmh in a 100. 50kmh over results in an automatic 7 day seisure of you car in Ontario. I guess no more Gumball Rally for him!

Harrasment?

"HQ, we have a bunch of guys partiipating in an event that involves getting things done as fast as possible on the roads, let all units know to keep an eye out for any racing or reckless driving."

Lots of rights being violated there. ****, thats racist! Cops are not allowed to talk to each other about possible situations on the roads!

That's cops doing their ******* jobs. Now stoping people for no reason, that's harrasment. Keeping an eye on likely law-breakers for the sake of public safety is part of what we pay them for.

I didn't read the story, if they were arrested for having gumball stickers on their cars, yes it was harassment. If they weren't, I think it's as simple as a "keep your eyes open" warning to others.

Ok just read the story, hopefully that Ferrari being pulled over was speeding.
