Default If only I had the video camera out

Ok so I left the house to take my dad'* cell phone to him (he left for work and left it) and I noticed a sheriff sitting in front of the barns that are diagonally across the street from me. Hmm note to self, drive the speed limit on the way back.

I had just got back and noticed the sheriff was pulling back in front of the barns. Thought to myself, sweet he got someone. I parked my car in my driveway and was getting out when all of the sudden I hear the loud roar of about 3-4 crotch rockets whizzing past my house going at least 90 (in a 55). And then I see the discos

The best win by the police in my area in a while. I get tired of hearing those dang rockets go whizzing past all the time. I wish I had a video camera out to capture it all.

I bet they wished they hadn't done that. I'm sure it was a hefty fine along with possibly a criminal traffic citation.

Almost sounds like they were waiting for them. That'* why you don't monkey around on a road you drive all the time. Someone will notice and call it in.

We have always had problems with people going way too fast on our road. And Kevin, I think some of them are getting arrested because there'* more than one cruiser up by where they got pulled off. Some of them probably didn't even have a motorcycle endorsement I guessing just from knowing what kind of people they are (my brother knows a bunch of them)

Bri..In Washington State, you go double over the posted speed limit it'* Negligent Driving (criminal traffic) and fines are heavy - $700+. If you don't have an endorsement for driving a MC, the MC get'* towed and impounded - $240 for the tow and one day impound.

I've seen lot'* of crotch rockets around here that I hope get their just rewards from the long arm of the law. But, the way that some of them ride, I doubt they will make it through the riding season without an accident or turning themselves into an organ donor.
