Default The biggest speeding ticket I have ever heard of!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of my friends had his ford ranger out on the road one day they were speeding around and stuff cause he bought some twin turbos fior it lowered the comression cold air induction regeared his 5 speed tranny (put a new one in) and he was cruising at 150 mph and heard his cop detector going off he slammed it into 4th and slammed the brakes on he was caught doing 123 in a 25 mph speed zone the ticket was for reckless driving totalling $2700 and a loss of lisense for 2 years. He just told me yesterday about it hes a old friend that we never really hung out before now. He gets his isence back in march and he got arrested on the spot also all i wana know is why would you stop if your going 150 just keep er down it would be the first time a ford ranger beat a cop lol o ya he also put in a hyperchip to kill the governer and he has friends that are advanced in auto'* help him total for everything was like 3 grand to do all mods..........he took all the **** out and resold it to his dad.............btw his 1st day out after doing his mods he gets busted lol

The only place I know of that has 25mph speed limits is in residential areas. If thats the case he got off easy in my mind.

Yeah! No kidding! Reckless driving, by the legal definition and my own personal opinion, is really an irresponsible and selfish act, not to mention stupid. It'* scary to think of all the kids, people and things that can jump out in front of you at 25mph, at a 100-and some there'* not chance you're stopping. Scary...

No, biggest speeding ticket ever was handed to Danny Heatley after driving his Ferrari thru a ritzy Atlanta residential neighbourhood, crashing, and killing his passenger (who happened to be a friend and teammate)

Your story about your idiot friends doesnt hold a candle to the above case of reckless speeding.

its one thing to go 85 on a highway in a 70-75 zone.. its another to go 150 is a residential neighborhood. It'* one thing to have a heavy foot, and in rain/snow to fool around skidding around, doing fishtails and maybe a doughnut or two [reverse for us ] but its just another case of the immature driver, being stupid, and really showing it!

there is no Ranger that will run 150... regardless if its a trbd 2.3, 3.0, 4.0, or a 5.slow... mine feels like it will fall apart at any second at about 25mph

hmm... after converting to numbers i'm more familiar with,

240km/h on a road you're supposed to be going 40km/h on...

this musta been some long *** straightaway. The only 25mph limited roads here are small residential streets away from bigger main routes. How the hell your buddy can do that, beats me...

I've driven rangers anywhere from 1986-1996.. they're very unstable at speeds of even 70 MPH. I don't even think it would be possible to drive 150 in a Ranger. You couldn't keep it on the road. one bump and it'd fly off. I can see maybe 110.. but no way anything higher than that really..
