That back road had oncoming traffic and no center divider. And you were shooting vid with one hand and driving with the other.

That'* pushing the limits of what we allow on this Forum. Notice the locked topic in this section.

Let the topic continue, but also remember that we've drawn a line here, and do enforce it. Too much of this, and alot of other people go out and try to 'beat' the guy before. We proved we could stop it by preventing the posting in the first place (in some cases).

We have a couple current members that habitually do uber-stoopid crap on the freeway with video cameras. We'd like to think that our policies and firm enforcement might have a positive effect on their judgement in the future. If they can't post it here, they may not bother filming it.

Is the full set of rules available somewhere? it'* been awhile since i've looked at them and it seems like they're getting enforced a little bit harder lately.

Street racing is strictly prohibited. It'* clearly detailed in the section description.

The guilty party above (1993 SLE) posted a HORRIBLE abuse of that in the recent past. In his case, he had a camera person in the car filming for him, and she was begging for him to slow down from his 125 mph sprint race with a ricer on a major freeway in the rain. His camera person was observed by several members of our forum when she got out of his car. She was distraught and trembling.

That'* the kind of driver who is giving advice on how to properly film and post unsafe videos, and he has been very clearly told what is appropriate to post on this Forum and what is not.

He was given a month 'time out' by one of the Moderators today. Nobody gets discipline in this manner unless they've been clearly told the expectations in the past. Ample warning and explanation are always given.




The explanation above should clearly show everyone what we have zero tolerance for. In the case of the video in this topic, as I said, it'* starting to push the limits. We're in the gray area here. Bottom line? Safe = OK. Unsafe = No Way.
