u didnt learn from the first time?
how did they catch you

i almost got caught once, the cops were kool :D

it was right after me and my frens saw F&TF :rolleyes:

i raced this maxima up and down this street, it was just like the one steve has cept it was a gxe auto and he beat my by half a car, i had 2 more ppl in the back

then we got out of the city streets and went towards the guys house theres a perfect straight road right there and we raced 3 times, first 2 times i got bad launch and it turned out even the third time i took em by like 2-3 cars :eek: then he let off, and i turned into his apt complex entrance, its gated, and then i see my friends walking away, they were watching the race, i was like wtf
then i see the red and blue in my rearview mirror, i was like oh shitt :eek: :eek:

i cooperated and called them sir, there were 2, came out looked at my car and asked me how fast i was going bak there, i was like i dont know, i wasnt looking cause i didnt see anyone else on the road and there was no posted speed limit, which there was not on the road :)
then they say "We know what u were doing" I didnt say anything
Then they say yoiu were going reall fast but we dont know how fast it was, then they tell me about my blue sidemarker lights and how theyre illegal, i told them i didnt know and i would change them bak to red, idiots didnt know that the reflector has to be red, they walked aorund the car but didnt find anything else to bitch about, they looked inside with a flashlight and let me go

i was damnn lucky!!

damn thats a long story! sorry i didnt shorten it
anyways if ur going to do it u should know to do it on a flat, straight, empty road where there are no connecting streets and u know no one else willl enter and u know there arent going to be any cops around

me and my friend were in his lexus es300 in northern cali, and we were racing some taurus SHO and this cop pulled us over and told us to leave the city or we would be arrested for a felony--speed contest. We bounced pretty quickly.:D ;)

yes i unfortunatly got caught for the following in my old turbo hybrid
racing -criminal offense no fine offered
reckless driving- criminal offense no fine offered

got caught red handed, what can i say . went to my court date talked to the prosecutor, got off with 10 hrs community service and upon completion it was wiped clean from my record ... this was 2 months ago, funny thing is i think that was the turning point for me to sell my hybrid .. GOD i miss that car, but i didnt need the trouble anymore.. --joe who learned his lesson the hard way.

i've been caught before.. it was in april of 2000. i live in so cali and i was leaving long beach.. at this time i was driving a 99 integra ls (dont be too quick to judge my stock integ w/exhaust and intake.. has burned an lsvtec; my stupid cousin wasted too much money on his lsvtec but thats another story)i was on the 405 s headed to the 605 s... when i was merging to get on the 605 a 92-95 civic coupe comes out of nowhere tail gating.. so i slow down to make the jerk brake and then an old ass camaro comes out from behind the civic and comes next to me.. he stays with me for a while then starts to take off.. the civic then goes to the lane left of me and i'm in the middle.. for some reason that night there were a lot of cars.. it was about 1am in the morning.. on a weekday. well the civic and the camaro goes for it but get stucks behind cars.. i see an opening and catch up but my dumb ass kept going.. and going and going!!!! i'm about 1/2 ahead of them and my exit is coming up so i blink my hazards twice to thank them for an easy race and when i stop to make a turn of the exit i look behind me and i see a car with some lights on top of the roof... i'm hoping it's one of them stupid ass security guard cars. you guys know what i'm talking about! them damn platt security with the lights on the top of their cars and the bright ass light next to their side view mirrors.. well i'm hoping and hoping.. and right then... i hear BOOMMMMMMMMMP!!! this asshole has to get on the loud speaker and tells me to turn and pull over.. i'm like 1 block away from home and i get pulled over, what a bitch! so he makes me get out the car and asks me why i was in such a rush, i tell him the civic and camaro were chasing me and i got scared cause they were throwing things out their car... but this asshole says he's been tailing me for more than a while..and thats bullshit! so anyways he writes me a ticket for reckless driving: speeding caught going 115mph, no signal merging lanes, using all 4 lanes on highway, unsafe to other drivers, speed contest.... so i go to court and i have to do 5 days in county or 5 days cal trans.. with a fine of $800 i had a family lawyer.. so i didnt pay for one... but shit i couldnt go to county for 5 days i was only 18 and i'm too chicken shit for county hahaha.. little ass asian girl in county, oh hell no. so i opted for the cal trans but my lawyer got me to do this private jail thing for 5 days.. i go in at 7am and leave at 5pm.. i show up at the police station and do chores all day.. i ended up sitting around doing crossword puzzles for 5 days.. oh and that was an extra $500.. but it was in the beautiful city of palos verdes.. if you look across the police station you can see the beautiful ocean, haha. so i did that shit and i had to go back to court to tell them i finished... what happened is my lazy ass decided not to go to court and just mailed some papers in really late...a month later i was in hollywood leaving a party and i got busted! they took me in for a bench warrant that was issued for not going to court, what a bitch! so it's like 3am and they take me to south central jail on thanksgiving morning! my car didnt get towed, luckily my cousin was with me so they let him take my car... he went all the way back to my moms house to pick my mom up to bring her all the way to LA to bail my ass out. $2000 bail because i didnt go to court! what a bitch! i've learned my lesson, no more failure to appear! and it was scary at south central, i saw a transexual hooker that got the shit beat out of him, i'm guessing cause whoever bought him thought he was a she... so thats my sad story...

so you know what NO MORE FREEWAY RACES! fuck all them little busters who rev at me on the freeway.. i dont wanna go through all that drama again.. and FUCK THE POLICE =P

I ALMOST got caught once, the guy was in a souped up civic(exhaust, intake, body kit, 17s), and I had debagged my car so he had no idea what I was packing. I was riding with my lil brother and he asked me is that car faster then mine, so I was like lets see. I shifted down to d3, waited for the light to turn green and slammed it, I beat him off the line immediately (id say about 2 and a half cars length) at this time I started to approach 2 cars (one in front and one on right), I quickly past the one on the one on the right, and darted right to avoid the one in front of me. Now I dunno how, but I became boxed in for a slight moment and the civic used this to get ahead of me, so then he started darting left and right to avoid traffic, and keep ahead of me. By now you could tell he was getting pissed(his girlfriend kept looking back at me in amazement), I mean thru all this manuervering he still couldn't get me off his bumper, I literally almost ran into him. Now about a 1min later we roll by a cop, but for some reason the cop didn't pursue us, while the guy in the civic is caught in shock, i pass him, but then decide to let up. Pissed, the guy in the civic shoots by shootin me evil glances, cop shoots by and laughs at him, flashign me a thumbs up and rides off. To this day, i still dunno why the cop didn't stop us. :confused:

Here is some advice, only race on roads u know won't have any cops, and know all the spots they like to hide in, but then again, you can't ever be too sure.
