You can't have it both ways sport. Drive with your seat belt with the occasional stop to be checked out or leave your ****ing custom carat home.If your driving in the publics eye and get stopped what's the big deal with showing identification?Although the drivers seemed like they wanted to catch some cops and make an internet example out of them; both officers remained professional...As a car owner having custom wheels out in the open is not a good idea.They go out in public all modded up? why do you need to show your custom tuner? I can't stand ****** bags like that. Defend it all you want but there is no need... I think if people are scared and you are causing a problem then the cop should have the right to tell you to put your car away. These technical laws are stupid. The cop can't look at the VIN number,hahahahha this country is retarded at times.The parallels are almost funny- They have a forum dedicated to police encounters/input here...(http://www.svtperformance.com/forums/donut-shop-61/) and do not make the connection even though both performance cars and firearms are regulated under the pretense of public safety- and often these regulations are neither reasonable nor contribute meaningfully to safety.What a bunch of clowns. Why drive a performance car? So you look cool or what?
So just because your performance car is perceived as unsafe, or too loud, or too fast- you should expect to roll over for any police encounter? Do you not have the freedom to travel? Is driving a shiny custom tuner probable cause for police to detain you? Have any of you performance car owners stood up for your rights in the face of a police officer overstepping their authority? Would you?
Harley is right- 90% of the population cannot understand the reason for exercising liberty in this manner, if they have no common ground on which they can relate. Perhaps instead of having our own 'events', we should break out into theirs and draw the parallel for them.
