   If you drive like a reckless douchebag, you're going to get summonsed and towed. Even if you are in a car club. And there are 15 of you. And it takes 4 police agencies to do it

There is a sports car club in Atlanta that takes regular high-speed drives through the nearby mountains. They seem to know what they are doing and I'd bet it's a thrill to zoom through them in a Ferrari or a Lamborghini.

Its these type of assholes that ruin things for others that enjoy driving fast. For farks sake man, at least you can wait to speed until you are on the road alone, and NOT pass on double yellow, or in such a way that you are not endangering, or pissing off others.

Sounds about right. I recall that behavior from my car club days. Go somewhere with just a couple people in the club and it wasnt bad, get the whole club together for a trip...some of them tended to get a bit excited.

Still not as bad as all the ricers that used to crowd the streets of the Tampa area on Saturday nights...they all drove like they were trying to prove something.

This happened to me Sunday here in New York when it was so nice out, except it was bicycles. They were definitely going over the speed limit of 30 on the town road, crossing double yellows, cutting people off, and just impeding traffic. Not to mention the glare off the spandex and glittery reflectors. Very dangerous. Wish they would get their schwinns impounded and receive summons for indecent exposure and disturbing the peace.

Yeah if you're driving recklessly enough to make other driving folks call the law on you, ya might as well head directly to the library since several books will be dropped or thrown at you.

My car club definitely frowns on this type of shenanigans since it gives both the club and car enthusiasts a bad name, and isn't even fun. Why risk losing your license to drive fast on freeways, which are straight and boring, when you can rent awesome tracks like VIR or CMP or even an old airport and drive as fast as you want?

How stupid do you have to be to think you could pull this type of stunt and not get arrested?

FTFY!

High speed driving on public roads is moronic - no matter what time of day. There's always gonna be someone else on them, plus if you're gonna go agricultural at 80MPH, wouldn't you rather be some place with a run-off area instead of trees, ditches or the other fun stuff that lines roads?

Track day is a scam thanks to greedy cops. In ontario they dropped the street racing law and then started harassing the tracks cus they werent getting the actual racers. Only the speeders they could now call street racers.
Also this summons thing sounds like shiat. Enjoy your police state society guys since that means none were actually spotted by police. Just hearsay crimes.
Sounds like guilt by association is so easily possible here.

My one issue with track days (and not one that would prevent me from going) are the idiots who go to every track day, and get fussy with passing. It's not enjoyable getting to a sequence of the track where the souped up car behind you can stop riding your ass when they're drafting. It's not NASCAR people.

Passing can be dangerous for the inexperienced, and the last thing you want is to mix experienced drivers with people pushing their cars beyond their skill levels. To make sure everyone has a good time without putting their lives at undo risk:

1. New track drivers are always accompanied by an instructor until they know the rules. No novice gets to drive alone without being signed off by the instructor. Novices can pass on the straight only.

2. Drivers are divided into run groups by skill level. The higher the skill level, the more open the passing.

Ok boys and girls. Finally a Fark post that's right in my wheelhouse. Sortof.

262 is a recently completed bypass that goes around the wonderful little burg of Staunton, Augusta County, Virginia (my hometown and recently voted top 10 "best small towns in America" by Smithsonian). Great place to raise a family or retire because... nothing exciting happens there. It also has one of the highest number of police officers per capita I've ever seen. So all of the Buford T. Justice references may not be that far off the mark. But the Shenandoah Valley scenery is gorgeous and we put up with them because occasionally, they do have to take the bullet out of the front pocket of their shirts.

250 runs from Staunton to Churchville and from there to Highland County, Virginia. To give you some idea of Highland County - it's known as "Little Switzerland". Now I know car clubs would take that drive assuming they would emulate Top Gear jaunting across the Alps in an exotic with some non-specific Euromusic playing mildly in the background, but I'm here to tell you - unless you want a nice flaming pile of wreckage decorating the base of a mountain...

DO NOT

SPEED

ON THAT

ROAD

If you want to make yourself and your nice automobile a greasy stain on the asphalt on some closed course racetrack somewhere, knock yourself out. It's a free country. But if you start testing the handling on your car on 262 when a Subaru of a Highland Mom with her three kids making her monthly WalMart run into town starts coming around the bend from the opposite direction, you are being a gigantic azzhat.

And on top of that, VA cops are complete dicks. My wife's family lives in Fredricksburg, so I've had to drive there a lot. Maybe they just treat out of state people like sh*t, but they pull you over for nothing and f*ck with you for their own amusement.

Oh. And lest I forget.

There is a law on the books in the Commonwealth that if you get caught doing triple digits, you go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200 dollars.

Keep that in mind if you come down I-81. If you need a good lawyer to represent, let me know. My mom's a paralegal and 81 truckers and stupendously stupid out of state speeders are her firm's bread and butter.

Don't forget that on the highways where the speed limit is 70, 80 is considered reckless driving. Virginia is made of penises.
