That wasn't justified at all, even without VIN tags, but w/e. At least all of the cars crushed were BUTT ugly.

Awesome! Maybe they should expand this to include impaired drivers as well. This would be a great deterrent to keep drunks off the road!

I saw this on the news, they didn't quite explain what youhave to be charged with for that to happen though. But it put a smile on my face when I saw the car crushed .

I'm sorry, but I have to oppose ALL crush laws, VEHEMENTLY. Many states enacted crush laws for DUIs awhile back, and almost all have been fought by enthusiasts and historical vehicles groups. They were crushing cars that had historical value, even including some that were rare or one of a kind. The monetary value of some cars alone makes crush laws absurd. The cars could be auctioned, and the proceeds put directly into funding the local police departments.
Police departments have no concept of which of these cars might be valuable, and they aren't given the legal right to set out which cars are too valuable, or rare, or historically significant to be crushed. So, they shouldn't be allowed to crush ANY.
Confiscate them, move them to public auctions in a different city, then auction them.

^^^^Word.... And the fact that people are saying "ricers" deserve it is just ignorant, and rude. What if that was your car? What if you spent a few thousand on customizing it, ended up with stolen parts in your car that you didn't know about, and got your pride and joy crushed? It could happen, we all do buy parts from other members from time to time. Seriously, just because the car is an Import doesn't justify crushing it. Especially when there'* money to be had at auctions as was mentioned.

The message that I got was that street racing is very dangerous and kills people. This is what I understand the issue to focused around. Confiscating property doesn't seem to be a big enough deterrent.

I fully support crushing cars taken from drunk drivers. Impaired driving is wrong, everybody knows it but it still happens. Check stops, education and other penalties haven't had the effect society needs to prevent these needless deaths. I also think it should be mandatory for the driver to watch, not just optional. I can appreciate some of these vehicles having significant value but if this is effective, I have to say go for it. Perhaps people will think twice before risking something of such value. Maybe where historical value is concerned, others will apply enough peer pressure to have an effect (friends don't let friends drink and drive). When are we finally going to get serious about eliminating such flagrant and irresponsible behaviour? I can pretty much guarantee that anyone surviving the loss of a loved one or friend to such an event isn't really concerned about the dispostion of the offending vehicle. Aren't these the people who have suffered the real loss?
