The idiotic thing is that this was prompted (or the press release was, in any event) by a huge accident that resulted in a death on one of the highways here. The kicker? The cars were stock - their parents cars, not some hopped up "street racer" cars.

It'll never survive the first legal defense, but it worries me that the government is being this reactionary. Go after the drivers, not the cars, IMHO.

Cheers,

Jeff

exactly my point if the car is raced legally and still street legal then how can they impound it. geez, So what if it will stomp on the streets, it doesn't does it? then leave the nice ricers alone. dammit. I hope all this crap gets dealt with soon seems like a major pain in the ***. What is next a ban on performance parts or vehicles a stock evo or STI is a race inspired car or even a corvete or caammaro/GTO so WTF

So why do we care? We all have turbos, and stock looking cars. The roll bar can be easily explained, and the dropped ride height as 'it's an old car with old shocks'

Out of all of us here, who has stickers/altezzas/fart cans? Very few. We're all for *****-to-the walls power, no showing off.

i have altezza tails and i make enough power to be considered to be a race car by them probably they would snoop on what you have done performance wise by tracking what you buy etc.

Next Nopi event should be in Ontario!

Also it shouldn't be street racers getting crushed. It should be any car with lambo doors, over 1000 watts of stereo, more that 20 speakers, more nos bottles than seats, wheels larger than +3", more neon than Las Vegas, imports with hydraulics or wearing colored smoke tires.

Bryant the guy behind the law has already band 'Pit Bulls' or any dog that may look like a 'Pit Bull' (though Pit Bulls are not even a breed of dog ... just a slang name).

Even though he could not even identify a 'Pit Bull'.

The guy is an IDIOT but he does have power

Spike,

Seems if French is a Canadian's first language they're pretty much nuts. Who else would come up with the idea that Roy is pronounce Wah. It's friggin ROY already.

Like the Sen's though. Hossa played junior Hockey in my town and brought us the Memorial cup. Had his knee destroyed in the final game.

French is not the first language of Canada,English is,also Chinese is the unofficial second language of Canada.

90% of Canada does not even know how to speak french or understand it.

I work with a few French Canadians and I agree with that statement.

You think Chinese is the second official language because you live in Hong-Couver. I live in Alberta so I think ignorant is the second langauge.

Spike, I wasn't saying French is Canada's 1st language. I said Canadian's that speak french as their 1st language are the nut jobs.

Staff's are small but mighty. My French Bulldog is just plain small. :gay:

Since French is just a pseudonym for Gay, I guess it's appropriate that only 10% of the population uses it. Too bad they seem to be the 10% that run the gov't there.

it's probably used by officers discretion, and could be used to abuse power,
