Default Advice before u decide to gun it

I was on this pretty big 4 lane road the other day when I stopped at a red light. I was going about my every day stopping and waiting for green procedure when I heard reving next to me of a z3 bmw, the guy was giving me that "race me punk" smirk, his girlfriend looking as if she was sighing at how pathetic he was in the passenger. Obviously the guy didnt have a rader detector because mine was going nuts, the cop was directly behind me. Well he shot off on the green and I switched lanes letting the cop have the liberty of hitting his lights and chasing the biatch. And no I didn't resist the temptation to wave to the guy as I passed his sorry pulled over ***.

Or just save it for the track so that way you dont have to worry. I know I am glad that I ahve a radar detector just for normal driving. I think those Z3 are ugly.

I've done that before! Sometimes from the roll, sometimes from a stop. If I know a cop is ahead, I've been known to egg someone on by sprinting ahead and dropping back even

I've gotten 3 nailed in the last 6 months.

That'* good...

and Wren, you are mean, I like it!

I was watching COPS a while back and this squad rolled up behind a Camaro and a Stang at a light at night. This car was fully marked with lights and all. You think that would have stopped these two guys from raceing? Not a chance. Light went green they both spun them and took off. It was kinda funny, especially since the cop got them both pulled over.
