A shame the driver didn't die.  One of those piece of shiat street racers did die in Albuquerque recently, but only after running through a red and hitting another car.  Scumbags.

NM Volunteer: A shame the driver didn't die.  One of those piece of shiat street racers did die in Albuquerque recently, but only after running through a red and hitting another car.  Scumbags.


I was driving home from the doctors office today in I-66 near DC and I was passed by some dipshiat in an early 2000's BMW M5 going at least 90 miles an hour. He used the right lane to pass first, then went off onto an exit lane, then the shoulder, and subsequently crossed three lanes of traffic to get back on a two lane highway where the speed limit is 55 but people routinely go 65.

I have never wished for a person to die more.

Dear Illegal Street Racers,

I hope you all die in auto accidents involving only others of your kind. You are vain, entitled adrenaline junkies with an automotive fetish.

Street racing should be punishable by slow death. Even when it doesn't result in that naturally.

Subby said street racing. Here's what the article said:

Los Angeles police say the driver was fleeing the scene of a street takeover event a few miles away that officers had just broken up.

It was a side show. No one is racing at a side show. I'm way too old to be participating in side shows, but I did participate in illegal street racing when I was younger and it frustrates me to hear side shows described as street racing. The vast majority of side shows end with no one getting hurt or arrested. I had friends hospitalized due to street racing and a close friend died racing on a city street. Side shows ain't street racing.

Ah, DC.

Have you been in any of the dirt bike or motorcycle swarms yet?

I was on the beltway on the football team opening day, and there were motorcycles all over the place, in groups of 3-6 in various spots along the shoulder (a few who looked like cops had pulled them over, oddly), but traffic was backed up.

Every now and then, a dozen or so would start weaving in and out of the slow moving traffic surprising people who were trying to change lanes and almost hit them.

I finally got up near Central Ave, and we were forced down to one lane (and the exit for the stadium) as someone was laid out in the middle of the road.  (They we're still moving... cops had blocked off three lanes, but I didn't see any medical there yet... a fire engine was coming up the shoulder the opposite way just after I passed them)

I've heard the dirt bike / atm group is even crazier.... Going the wrong way on exits to avoid cops, etc.

Some of those swarm guys start from my neighborhood so I know when they will be out on the Beltway. I should give the police a notice since it happens so often.

More people are seriously injured or killed from street racing than side shows. Police departments all over the country that have to deal with side shows treat them as minor, non-violent crimes. Note that the article made no mention of any arrests or injuries at the actual side show. Try drag racing down Hollywood Blvd and see if you get the same response.

A side show is in a parking lot at least, and the only people getting hurt usually are those participating. It clearly says this was a street takeover which is people competing to see who's the biggest dirtbag while endangering the general public. Big difference. These people aren't fit to live in society.

I live in the bay area, where side shows originated. The vast majority of them are held in intersections, not parking lots. The intersection pictured below is maybe two miles from my house.

Wanker. Both are illegal, both pose a danger to the public and both are done by testoterone driven little boys who should be taken out and given public works jobs to keep them out of trouble and teach them a trade apart from 'blowing mommy and daddy's money on toys and lawyers'. No difference between you racing and next gen side show burnouts. Go chase the kids off your lawn!

'Popular with Black people'? Maybe in Black neighborhoods but I guarantee there weren't any Blacks in lily-white downtown Carmel during Car Week this summer when they had side shows on several nights closing intersections. They are ALL bad, all illegal and all dangerous.

My understanding has been that sideshows were away from live traffic, and takeovers were purposefully extra douchey. A quick search shows people use both terms for being absolute dicks on public streets.

"No.  I committed gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and have unpaid parking tickets.  Be gentle."

I live in West Philly. Last weekend I was driving home from Center City and noticed a gas station and park with hundreds of dirt bikers and quad bikers. I mentioned to my friends I wanted to get off the road as soon as possible. A few of them zoomed past us, causing a near accident. A minute or so later, a cop car zoomed past. When we got home one of the quad bikes had hit an SUV right outside our door and we couldn't park on our block with the emergency response.

Yes, but what you call "side shows" do result in people not involved being delayed/inconvenienced, and as a South Los Angelino, I ain't having a problem with anyone executed as a result of their participation.

A deadly San Jose street racing accident killed an innocent bystander in 2015. ABC7 News was there after an officer was injured in a sideshow in 2017. In October 2018, a driver in a suspected street race struck another vehicle and killed an innocent person.

I live in the bay area, where side shows originated. The vast majority of them are held in intersections, not parking lots. The intersection pictured below is maybe two miles from my house.

[Fark user image 425x205]


Same same.  Not a weekend goes by that the evening isn't set to the tune of engines and tires howling somewhere near by.

And with nearly every sideshow comes fights, gunshots, and fatalities.  My Citizen app sounds like a farking pinball machine on the weekends.

If someone snapped and decided to set up on a high point and started just picking off drivers swinging it in intersections with a high powered rifle, I can't say I'd be sad, and I know most my neighbors wouldn't exactly shed a tear.

In the Bay Area there's no excuse.  Three world class race tracks within rock-throwing distance, multiple closed-circuit drift events and trackdays on the regular and a dozen drift clubs to choose from.

You do that shiat on public roads and you're just going out of your way to make sure the entire city knows you're an asshole.

137 Is An Excellent Time: CruiserTwelve: 137 Is An Excellent Time: Meh. The standard has been set. Protestors made the streets and highways fair game. If BLM can shut down a freeway, so can squids and sideshows.

It's now a public forum. Be damned the consequences and be damned anywhere anyone needs to be.

You being inconvenienced is just the price of living in a free society.

Protestors had an unselfish purpose. Idiots doing donuts do not.

Debatable. I think you'd find the people who stunt on highways do it for very altruistic reasons.

Like anything, people are free to disagree, but who are YOU to argue with them?

Breaking the law is breaking the law. We don't leave room for personal bias and altruism when we write them.


No.
Why matters---civil disobedience in the name of social justice is a good enough reason to break the social order and block traffic---doing donuts is not, in fact, when done in an intersection or a bridge, such "sideshows" are basically nothing more than a flex against their communities
Racists, fascists, and other conservative dickbags may not agree, but things like protesting police brutality and racism trumps doing donuts and burnouts

You present a false dichotomy, one need not condemn social justice protests in order to condemn "sideshows" and racing

Sideshows are often civil disobedience towards what is seen as an overly aggressive and idiotic stance towards traffic law enforcement.

When I was younger, we'd regularly streetrace because, well, fark the police. We have just as much right to use the roads to have fun as you do to get to your karate class.

Again, what you see as idiocy, others see as acts in defiance of the law.

This goes both ways. A Trumper is likely to look at a BLM protest on the highway in the same way you look at a bunch of black guys on ATVs and dirt bikes tearing up the streets.

Sometimes, civil disobedience comes in different forms. Stunting and street side shows and BLM are two sides of the same coin and often involve the same group of minorities.

This ain't usually white people doing this. It's minorities looking to have fun with each other. Nothing really wrong with that. You just see this law breaking as somehow different than the same law breaking on another day.

Your inconvenience is simply the cost for them to do what they want to make a point. Same as always.

137 Is An Excellent Time ... We have just as much right to use the roads to have fun as you do to get to your karate class.

Just when you get done reading Boebert's Twitter feed and you thought you'd maxed out on the dumbest shiat you've ever read.

Sounds like Van Nuys. Checks... yeah, Van Nuys. Shame, that place used to a dank ol' tiddy bar.
