That really sucks. The way that streetracing is handled by the law is more often that not completely overboard. Here in WI, I'll get fined for drifting in a private parking lot or racing down a 4 lane highway (and rightfully so), but all too often the drunk drivers are let off. Yeah, all streetracers are definitely not all good drivers, but for better or for worse, at least we're aware of what's going on and can react, unlike a DUI. You can pick out the drunks around here just as easily as the guys racing. Who do you think gets pulled over?

It's a shame to take a risk like this when it's so easy to get your car on track- road course or strip.

I'd definitely go or a lawyer and accept the fact that you'll be working off his paycheck over the next few years. Better than getting all this on your record.

Awesome, hopefully i'll be there sometime this month. This time of year they're usually few and far between.

I got a $200 disorderly conduct w/ a motor vehicle ticket for doing donuts in an empty, snow-covered parking lot. I know plenty of idiots that drive drunk and brag about close calls and never getting caught.

My ticket was for $172. Happened over winter break. The cop threatened to charge me with attempted manslaughter (or something like that, don't remember exactly) because I had a passenger on top of it.

OP: Sorry to hear your trouble and of course the cops are over reacting. But you really should try to get your *** over to a safe race track instead. I mean, what IF you cause an insident one day. Could be hard to live with.

Speaking of fees and such: I got hit by a speed camera, doing 9km/h too much. It costed 15€. My Finacee got hit a few days later, doing 14km/h to much. That costed 25€. I love this country!

It is those little bastard vans with cameras that they move around every twice per year. I fell so dumb going: Where have I seen that Van before... *FLASH*... ooh ****.

The cops that stopped my doing 240km/h (I had a nice company car) on Autobahn, in a 130km/h zone just let me go when I told them I was Swedish. Too much paperwork

This is Airport Road CALI, not the Airport Road in Mississauga, Ontario.

People have raced near airport road for years, but not on it. Street Racing is dead in Ontario, Canada since Toronto Street Racing. com closed down. Around that time everything just died off as enforcement got tougher around here and they crushed some Hondas.

And the homie in the video is a retard.

When I went to Toronto to pick up my hardtop I saw those signs on the side of the freeway that stated the speed and how much the ticket was. I was really surprised at how expensive they were. People were still speeding though.

It was also kind of funny because the whole time I was there I think I saw 1 police car. Really nice freeway though.
