Actually, no, they do it because street racing is illegal.

A few years ago when I had the turbo Corrado, an undercover cop in an impala SS was ******* with me, just annoying the **** out of me. I'd slow down, speed up, change lanes, he followed me. So finally I ******* lit em up and tore ***. Well he flipped on his lights, I pulled over, and he gave me an "exhibition of speed" ticket. ******* ------.

I ran my mouth a little bit too because I was a dumb-*** 20-year old too.

I have no real problem with sending the ghetto bird and paddy-wagon out for street racers, but that's not what police use these for. They are told to take these cars out, and generate street racing tickets. The x-cop sitting behind me did this with a c5 z06. If you don't get tons of tickets, you don't get to drive the 500hp toy car.

"These two cars are now part of a 24 car, unmarked fleet used by HITS to enforce traffic laws throughout the county."
"You can check out the new unmarked police cars. There is a slideshow in the sidebar of this article"
next they'll take these cars to car shows and show them off, win trophies for best cop car etc.

i understand street racing is illegal, and they should crack down on those people
but when im cruising down the highway on my way to work and someone instigates, you race them, and it turns out to be a cop, thats BS...

you sound like a cop, and i respect cops, but these bullshit operations are useless and designed to increas profitability of the county/state or whatever, they do little good compared to what they cost to run

the police force would "serve the community" much better cracking down on drug dealers, hookers, people robbing gas stations etc. but that doesnt generate revenue for the dept., it just puts bad people behind bars where they belong, and then we have to pay to keep them in there and feed them and house them etc.

sorry, but that pisses me off, knowing there are cops out there aiming to get me to race them just so they can hand out another ticket or confescate my car...bullshit

These tactics are petty bull ****. Seizing property for traffic violations is taking things too far, even for drug busts it's really too far, but I understand the logic.

Still the cops are acting like thugs and bullies prancing around on news shows with their shiny new seizures... Notice that the cops never seem to have any real exotics... that's because those folks have the resources to prevent seizure.

Wanna prevent seizure of your ride? LOL, have it financed. Let your bank deal with the cops. It's very difficult for them to seize something that doesn't belong to the offender... Alternatively let your friend have the title in his name, since you were just "borrowing the car." They can't seize it (not easily at least.)

when the Md state police first got their Camaro's.... I had a PO try to instigate a race with me in my rx-7.

I took the bait at first, downshifted into 4th and punched it for ***** and giggles, and then I saw the lights on the dash and stopped... No ticket or pull over, just a dissapointed officer

I don't care if they drive fast cars. But they should be painted like cop cars!!!!!!!!!!
This is just stupid and asking for woman to be trusting and get raped. This happened to a friend of mine. A rapist put lights in a crown vic. And they never found the rapist either.

We have SS camero's here. But they are white and have stickers.

Don't pull over for an unmarked car. Call 911 and ask if an officer is following your car (give plates, description). That's the only way I'd stop -- confirmation from the police dept.

I almost pulled over for a fake cop on my way to MATG06. Actually I practically did pull over, I was in the middle of no where an an older late 90s caprice came up behind me with red and blue blazing, as I was pulling over to the side in the emergency lane, he sped up next to me. It was some weird white dude in a wife beater. He put on some leather gloves and took off on an exit before I could get his plate to call in. Freaked me out!

Cops shouldn't be able to bait you into street racing? What, they should wait for you to try to race them? Do I like it? No. Is there something wrong with it? Not really. Whether it's a cop, or a 16 y/o with a new toy, if you take the bait, the risk is the same... that if you don't lose control, that someone else who isn't expecting the street to be a race track, to get in the way.

Frankly, I think cops instigating street races is dumb and shouldn't be allowed, for the same reason that they typically don't engage in high-speed pursuits of motorcyclists; high risk of serious injury/fatality. First time a cop instigates a street race, and some kid gets run over, it's going to be all over the news... on that front, I find it overwhelmingly hypocritical and stupid.

But, at the end of the day, the supposed purpose of issuing tickets, confiscating vehicles, etc., is simple. They believe that without traffic enforcement, they will be responding to more accidents; by keeping people paranoid thru traffic enforcement, people will be better behaved, and fewer accidents will result. It's a poor substitute for good driver training - come on, DMV driving test doesn't have you merge onto and off of the highway/freeway? - but it's what a majority of people tolerate.

As for driving your buddies car and not having it seized... umm... yeah. Maybe in some states that'll stick, but the ones I know of, when your buddy handed you the keys to the car (i.e. did not report the car stolen), he's assuming liability for what you do in it; whether you rob a bank, run someone over, or go street racing, the car can still be confiscated, and they'll be even more likely to want to do so... not to teach him a lesson, but to make everyone else paranoid about loaning their car to the lead-foot friend, especially the one who has been drinking.

Okay, end of rational thought, let's go back to bitching about pigs hating on people with fast cars, just because we want to let some of those ponies loose on the street, since we can't afford track time.

Actually, it is legitimate to refuse to exit the car until you've confirmed the identity of the officer by contacting their dispatch, but unless you're a woman (or in women's clothes), not pulling over is guaranteed to get you every ticket they can write you up for. If you are a woman, circumstances may vary... hell, I knew a gal, she got pulled over in her Miata by CHP on highway 85; they asked her if she realized 85 was the highway number, not the speed limit. (She had a lead foot, got out of more speeding tickets... ah, boobies.)

One of the neatest undercover cars I saw was a Lexus SC400 in D.C.

It was black, chromed rims, REALLY dark tint, etc. The lights were integrated so you couldn't see them in the grille. I believe it was a drug bust or sting of some sort near the Washington Monument.

lots of points made, but lets be honest, i dont condone street racing, especially when other cars are around, common sense always needs to pervail, every time i "raced" someone on a street, it was more like playing around, not ***** out top speed runs for an extended period of time, kick it and see who pulls on the other through maybe 2-3 gears
thats pretty harmless if you ask me

what tickles me to death is that i personaly have avoided more accidents than i can remember due to terrible drivers who dont see me and try to run me over...what are we doing about those drivers? making it easier for them to be reckless!

bullshit tacktics are just that, bullshit, and cops are asses for that, i still respect the real officers out there, the ones that actually do their job and not try to come up with ways to collect tax payers money and have fun at their jobs by racing around in "stolen cars"

no the **** you wouldn't. You'd cry like a ------ and suck him off like the dirty power-bottom handball bitch you dream of telling your family about, but you'll continue to hide the truth away, in your scat dungeon.
