my friend from school has always been a crazy driver. everyday for lunch we'd all go out for lunch and head for the mall during lunch period. he's pakistan, so he and his indian friends would load up in his car, while me (i'm chinese) and my asian boys would load up in my friends car. heh its like battle of cultures here. it's usually a pretty even weight distribution (about 5 ppl in each car), my pakistan friend drives a 2001 Honda Accord sedan with the V-4 engine, and my korean friend (who drives us asian boys) drives a 1994 Cadillac Seville. well, you do the math:

Honda Accord: approx 170-180 HP V-4 engine
Cadillac Seville: approx 280 HP V-8 engine

We'd all sit together and eat together and stuff cuz we're all friends like that, but when we finish eating, it's a mad dash into the mall parking lot to load up in the cars and race back to school. haha usually he ends up beating us b/c he's a crazy ass driver, a few times me and the cadillac have dusted him easily (look at the specs) when it was safe to do so. but anyways, today it was same business as usual. except we're not trying to race cuz we were warned of cops buzzing around school. my pakistan friend doesn't car, he guns it to 87 MPH in a 25 zone and BOOM a cop comes out of nowhere.

needless to say, my friend is screwed.
he ended up with 3 tickets:

1 for peeling-out
1 for wreckless driving
1 for speeding 87 in a 25 zone

Revoked license

12 points

$1200 fine

damn, and we were lucky we didnt get caught. just thought i'd like to share my interesting race story of the day.

Stupid kids don't care who they kill. What they should have done with him is make him drive 87MPH into a bridge abuttment and video tape it for all his school mates. Something along the line of scared straight.

Harsh I know but I've been fighting idiots all day long and need to vent.

I4 inline 4 cylinder
open the hood. is the engine in a v shape? nope. 4 cylinders all in a line.

And its "reckless" driving not "wreckless." And don't do stupid stuff like race, especially with others in the car. Just a few weeks ago some kids in an Integra killed themselves next to my sisters house racing (hit a light pole). If you want to race join the SCCA.
Considering the stupid stuff I saw people do during high school I am amazed most of them made it through alive (although many of them lost their licenses).

Wow, 87 in a 25. That is really stupid. 25mph zones are usually only in residential areas. You don't speed in residential areas. That is just common sense. I am surprised the cop didn't throw him in jail.

I went to a Honda/Acura salvage yard last week to get a part. I was saddened to see quite alot of former "street racers" in the yard. Some were even unreconizable. Once nice cars Integras, Civics, even Legends( some former show entries) It's sad to see people be so careful in fixing up their cars only to see them driving careless in the streets. My user name is "ThaAcSwerver" But that's only for the net. As SuperStreet put's it -"Keep it off the street". Reality Bites Hard. -Can I get an AMEN??????

Maybe these will make you think twice.......

this song reminds me of one time driving an suv up the snowy mountains in tahoe...

the song was already on and my cousin was telling me to slow down as I was driving around the icy winding roads.. and the song was telling me to slow down at the same time.. I was pretty keyed and it tripped me out!

lets just hope my friend learns his lesson. earlier, another one of my friends was busted by a cop.

he was racing his 2001 civic 2-door against an acura integra manual, at like 2 in the morning. neither of them were off provisionals yet (in MD provisional license prevents you from driving past midnight to 5 AM) and once they peeled out on the road they both got busted. needless to say, my friend in the civic got 12 points, revoked license, and over $1000 in fines.

nevertheless, he still drives the civic to school everday, his parents don't care and know that he doesn't have a license anymore. STUPID.
