Cant get much worse then this. Thursday im goin home from Fast and Furious (4th time) and i get on the ramp to 95 towards trenton. I got pulled over but i wasnt speeding! He comes up to me and tells me to roll down my window. He checks my tints and they are 11% on his test thing. He asks me about my clear parking lights and he gets back in his car. After 20 min, he comes back up to my car, slashes my tints with razor, and gives me a $94 ticket for them, a $66.50 for the lights and $66.50 for driving past 12 with junior licence. so you think thats bad... Fukin yesterday (sunday) i get to a light with a camaro z28 reving its engine. Light turns green we both go, he stops, i keep goin, next thing i see is red and blue lights, damn cops. He gives me a $241 ticket for "drag racing" and a $265 ticket for reckless driving. thats bad right...no no...I get my fukin liscence suspended for 1 year.

Good thing you go it pulled too...

What the hell are you thinking dragging a
Z28? He could give you the next light and
still smoke you if he/she knew how to drive.
That is a 13 second 1/4 mile car stock. If
the person knows how to drive, and if they
have tweaked it like you tweaked yours, its
an easy 12 second car...

Hell, if he stopped, he probably knew the
cop was there and baited you.

ISsard22CU - it depends on what car I'm
driving. But to answer your question, and
assuming I'm driving my IS300. No. I would
not. Not at all. It wouldn't even cross my
mind to be honest with you.

Now, if I was driving my 89 mustang, then
hell yes. I wouldn'd rev my engine though.
I'd make eye contact, then ease it out, give
him/her the lead off the line, then light it
up and go. I hate breaking loose off line - so I give it away. I'll make it up on the top
end.

But - my Lexus is just that, it is a Lexus sport sedan. If I saw that same Z28 say at
Sears Point or Leguna Seca, and I was driving
the IS around the track, sure. I'd go after
him then.

Chances are, if he/she knows how to drive,
then they'll do better lap times than me. But, I'm not at such a huge disadvantage on
the track as I am in a stop light race. I feel that a stock IS can handle it's own around a track. I'm down 100 hp on power, but I'll get him in breaking.

This is long, sorry. So no, I wouldn't drag
him. I would road him though...

Wow. All of the sudden my troubles with the law don’t seem all too bad. Oh yeah, sorry to hear what happened…

P.S. If you thought the tickets were bad, just wait till your insurance renews (if ever).

Peace.

Depends if I had a junior license or not.

have the car insured under someone who has a good driving record. of course, that means you're not under the insurance policy. i did just that, and now i only pay $900 a YEAR. (i used to pay close to $3000).
the bad side is, if you get in an accident, and it's YOUR fault, the insurance guys could give you a headache. but hey, why do you wanna be pessimistic about that? live life optimistic and don't worry about getting in an accident.

Dude, you are a fuc king idiot! Time to grow up! j/k
That's a pretty fuct story, you must have offended the "Fast and Furious" gods. Can you sue the cop for vandelism for damaging your tint? Time to get Johnny Cochran.

Dude..Im sorry to be mean but you must have an IQ of a phuckin pigeon. First off...WHY THE HELL would you see fast and furious 4 times? Aside from the tight cars there is NO reason to see it more than once, MAYBE twice. Second, why the hell would you try to drag a Z28. Moron is all I can think of. The first set of tickets wasnt so bad but the 2nd time, thats your fault, dont blame the cops. pshhhh

cops carry around a gadget to check what percent your tint is!? i'm definately going with LEGAL 35% now..
sorry to hear about all that stuff.. and don't drag with Z28.. do it with a Trans Am.. puhahahaha
sike.. don't do that.. it'll blow by you going under 3000 rpm..
i say race few more civics until you get something under the hood..

Ah...the indiscretions of youth...

I remember when I was younger...

Oh, yeah, I didn't do things like that.

Sometimes the tough lessons in life are the only ones some people learn from.
