I got questioned like that once. Just picked up my 4WD Durango, and headed to a parking lot to see exactly what it would do in the snow - turning, stopping, all that. I'm sure he thought I was just a kid doing donuts, but I think he fully understood that I REALLY wanted to know what to expect from the vehicle in an empty lot, away from others, rather than have to suddenly find out on the road. Of course he just issued the standard warning "be careful" and all that. I couldn't imaging under those circumstances he would cite me.BlackCharger06 said:I'm pretty sure they can impound your car. I had the esc off last night and hand some fun with the wet roads. Mabye to much fun. I got stoped and explaied to the guy I just got the car and that it had alittle more horsepower then my 98 stratus. He got a kick out of the car and was looking fowarding to getting one himself. I guess I got lucky.
not always the case.....I was being chased by an unmarked trooper one time and I was well over 100 mph...even when he pulled me over he asked me did i know how fast i was going and i said "85" and he chuckled!! he then said he was doing 95 trying to catch up with me and knew i was going a lot faster than that. he ended up dropping it down to 85 in a 65 a let me go on my way.....i thought i was going to jail though!!in NY, if you are pulled over doing 100 MPH or more, you're car is automatically impounded.
Yep. I know when I cruise on the 400 series highways I make sure I don't go over 150km/h. And it's soooo easy to do that. The first day that new law was passed they impounded 28 cars in the GTA. :knockout:Here in Ontario Canada the law for speeding has recently changed. If you are caught going 50 km/hr over ANY speed limit then your license is suspended for 7 days (minimum), you get fined $2000 (minimum) and your car gets impounded for 7 days (minimum).

You then have to pay the towing and storage fees for your car upon picking it up. Also, you get labelled as reckless driving, street racing, etc. If you are doing what the Police deem as "excessive street racing" or have illegal modifications (Nitrous, underglow, slicks, etc) then they can, and have, permenently confiscate your car. but don't worry because it wont be for to long because shortly after they call the news guys and run your car over with a loader :knockout: You get to read about it the next day on the front page of the paper. Harsh to say the least
Recent example, two guys in Bolton Ontario were doing 130 km/hr (minimum estimate) in an 80 zone and caused a 7 car pile up that closed a major 4 lane road for 9 hours. The guys survived but two ladies were killed. They haven't finished with the trial yet but there are already talks about doing a double feature on their cars with a couple of loaders. Their cars are stock, but because of the nature of their driving their cars have been confiscated by the police. Needless to say, these guys are going to get crucified to the maximum extent of the law.
