    Good thing he stopped that horrible person for having fun... clearly a huge threat to society.

    archive.fo: [Trooper] Stopped someone for 121 in a 70, ended up finding and citin… archive link for if/when the cop deletes it.

    No reason to pull over if you can get some distance when you have a car like that. Unless they're right on your ass good luck to them for claiming you were running.

    What a complete moron cop "you could have killed yourself and your friend if you crashed at that speed", yeah I can die anywhere between standing still and light speed in my car, whether someone rear ends me, t-bone from a red light runner, some drunk driver comes over the median and runs into me head on... But it's OK for you to go even faster than that car was going to catch up to him despite knowing there's a 95% chance he was probably going to slow down on his own soon anyway? Yeah let's add more speeding vehicles, in fact, let's add one that weighs 3 times as much and handles like a cruise ship in comparison to the equation :rolleyes: that definitely makes you not seem like a total hypocrite.

    And all could have been easily avoided with a RD or even just using waze... Easy C/O save and marked on Waze. Money can't buy a brain.

    Deputy Dawg on duty. Munching Jack in the Box burgers/fries, sitting on my fat ass all day and night.
    Sure am glad high school is over...I got tired of being in that gym locker all the time.

    As for our young hero in the McLaren.

    Adrenaline is a killer drug man.
    We had a GTO meet up a few years ago and a kid was killed going home afterwards. Hauling ass just outside Austin.People get behind the wheel of a muscle/performance car and just loose all sense of speed/brakes/tires/physics.
