arrested

got arrested last night for street racing. me and a buddy found an abandoned road thats in a new neighborhood that nobody lives in yet. cop happened to be driving by and now i'm looking at possible jail time. needless to say, i probably won't be seeing my balt too much and probably wont be on here too often. good news is, i beat him. 05 honda civic that thought he was sweet cuz he's got a muffler on it. just had my B&M shift+ installed and thought i would test it out. well i did and now i'm done. to anyone that's considering doing it, DON'T. it is the worst mistake i've ever made and hope no one is as stupid as i am.

Hard to believe you'll go to jail over this, yea it was dumb but shouldn't get you jail time. Just a hefty fine and threats should do...so don't do it again...LoL! Good luck!

Man, hate to hear that! I won't "scold" you, sounds like you learned your lesson.

I don't think you will get jail time either. Good luck!

[whisper]ohhhh...and congrats on the win ;) [/whisper]

Sounds like he learned his lesson?? Did you read the second half of his original post? And "winning" was the GOOD news of all this??

I bet Mom & Dad are real proud today! Wait 'till they get their next already huge, (because of him) insurance tab and for YEARS to come, court costs/fines, possible vehicle confiscation/sale. And yes,, if the court takes your car and you are still making payments???? Yes you continue to make payments on a car you don't have anymore. Now THAT sounds like a lot of fun!! And don't forget the attorneys!! Now they have to make money. You have to feed them too. Give them a thousand or so and they may save you a couple of hundred on your fine. Now that's cost effective.... Not scolding,, just what's GOING to happen. And you don't get much of a say either.. you're just gonna be in the listen/will do mode 'till the end now.
Seeing the picture?? You are now..... part of the "system"...... enjoy!!

abandoned places or construction sites are always hot for cops. not for street racing though, usually people stealing stuff.... eh

Every state should have automatic jail time if caught street racing. seriously...its dangerous and stupid...Know how many people have been killed involved and not involved? too many to count.

not going to preach to you, cause its pretty hypocritical of everyone to try and pass judgment on you.

everyone gets caught eventually, just a matter of when your card gets pulled.

live and learn.
