Well, I got busted for drag racing the other night <img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>. I was driving my g/f's Del Sol, there was my buddy's Integra LS and my other buddy's VW Golf. (You can see them at http://www.teamhyperrev.com).

Anyways, we lined up at Sunset & Boulder Highway (just got done bowling at Sam's Town). Light turns green and I launch. I look over and my buddies didn't launch, so I go into 2nd gear. Right after I shift they both take off. Now, if you've ever driven a car with a B16, you know they have no low-end torque whatsoever, so I'm at 3500 RPM when they go flying by, and I floor it. I easily pass my buddy in the Golf (115hp, 8v, 2.0L), but catching the Integra is another story. By the time we hit 80 I'm passing him. At 85, I see flashing lights behind me.

We pull over (all 3 of us) and proceed to get sweated by the cop. Luckily, he let us off easy. We got tickets for "Driving at an unreasonable speed" rather than reckless driving. The ticket was only $95 <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>. I got caught drag racing about a year ago and I got a $675 ticket for reckless driving <img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>.

How about over $5000?<img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle> I have a 2001 Hyundai Accent Gsi. It was about 10:00pm, Dec 2000, I was just coming away from a stop sign onto the highway and was going up through the gears, full-throttle, red-lining each gear, I passed an unmarked green Lumina at about 140 km/h in an 80km/h zone, he U-turned and flipped on the lights, I decided (don't ask for the thought process involved cause I don't think there was one) to shoot down a side road and leave him in the dust...snow actually. I did just that. He was a good 700m back the whole time, I guess the ice roads through a swamp kept him from putting the gas down in his family sedan, but anyway I came back to reality and decided to stop and well, he was ticked to say the least, he threw everything he could think of at me. 7 charges for a two minute chase. So after a lawyer, $4240, I was down to a handful of charges and fines, $750, and the police will need $100 to release my license back to me in January 2002 and some other fees, $250 or so total. Then my insurance is going to go through the roof sooner or later. So the moral of my ramblings is... maybe there isn't a moral at all, just me venting some frustration for not being able to drive. 6 months and 26 days till I drive again...arghhhh

My sister has an all expenses paid ride until January, she just has to give me a ride here and there somedays, she seems to think it's a good deal. However, my car is slowing collecting parking lot battle marks. For some reason, my sister and father aren't as obssessive as I am and don't park the car far from other vehicles. I already need the front bumper repainted and two other spots where someone damaged the paint, one is just a surface mark and the other is clearcoat damage I think. Oh well, that is the price one must pay to share the road with morons.... oh wait, I suppose I am one of those license losing morons... damn <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

I got busted wednesday night for racing my friend down a deserted area of road... obviously not TOO deserted or there wouldn't have been a cop... anyway, She was in a 92 honda accord ex 5 speed, and I've beaten her everytime, but this time we wern't even really racing, she just tried to pass me in the other lane... and when the cop pulled us over, he tells her to "get out of here" and then procedes to chew me out for driving like an idiot in.. how did he phrase it... "IN A HYUNDAI? A F*CKIN HYUNDAI?" anyway, I then got HER ticket for "Illegal Lane Change".... I never left my lane... anyway, $110 ticket... <img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

NOS!...I Need NOS!....And I Need It By Tonight...

I got busted at the Street races in Seattle a few months ago. I got 1 count of Wreckless, 1 count of trespassing, and 1 count of failure to obey an officer. All I can say is, don't try to out run a cop even if you're not in trouble yet. All my friends saw me race out of a alley across the street, going a whole 30MPH busted around a corner, and then stopped when I saw the lights. Damn! I wish I had it on tape! Anyways. Now I have $640 in fines and I pled guilty to failure to obey and officer, they dropped wreckless for neglegent driving and dropped the trespassing. In 1 year, if my record stays clean I get it all dropped....

Ahh Yes the slow and the hallrious, I went to see it yesterday and you wouldnt believe all the RICERS! I saw not only in the parking lot.....but in the movie theaters aswell..shi*! I thought that movie was the most worst written BS ive ever seen and gone in 60 seconds totally blew the movie to hell with the old domestics. The only part in the movie that I thought was tight was when that supra went up against the charger. But **** man where the hell where the cops in that movie!? As for the Parking lot battle marks I park far away and still get them, I hate the fukin inconsiderate loosers in this town.

Silly Ricer, Hondas are for kids!

I have had my car for about 1 1/2 years. As always, I park in the last spot of the parking lot to keep it away from other cars. OR if the lot is packed, I inspect each car on either side of me before I get out to see what kind of condition it is in (Scracthes, dings, etc) to see if the person cares or not. However, I have been hit by a couple of shopping cars. Tiny scratches, nothing major. There is just so much I can do!

As for racing. No tickets or Points <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> And I have gone pretty fast on the highways. (135mph, NOT IN HYUNDAI). I even once was going 75mph in a 35 at 1am on a straight side road. cop was in the oncoming traffic lane. Thinking smartly because cops in this town are anal will nail you for going 25.5 mph in a 25 zone, yet dumbly as well of fledding....But, so I dodged down a side road. Headlights off and high beam switch on, so the tailights are out yet I can see. Turned into someones driveway and turned the lights off. cop past by kept going. I backed out and took off. But theres the cop passing by as I was about to turn off! Kept going. So I turned out and he kept going the other way! Sucka!

One night when i was on my way home from a class (bout 10:30) some guy in a geo passed me going about 80 mph. I thought to my self not a chance and droped my Accent into 4th gear and shot by him. Unfortunately There was a cop up the road and he nailed me for reckless driving to tell you the truth i didn't think my Accent could do 109 in a 55 but i got the tickets to prove it, that time my ego cost me bout $900 after the lawyer costs. I seem to have to learn things the hard way <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

Attempted suicide?? They can charge you with that? I didnt think they can charge people with type of crime. What is the punishment if you get caught? lol
