Just because you have a car that is worthy of the track, you don’t get to turn public roads into your own personal race circuit.
A McLaren owner in Vancouver should be grateful they were only subject to the laws of this province when they were caught on the Lion’s Gate Bridge cranking at over three times the limit. While tagged doing 160 km/h in the bridge’s 60 km limit, officers in attendance said the driver actually was actively pulling away and estimates speed might have topped out at 190 km/h. They yanked the car, laid a $483 fine, but also applied for a high-risk driver designation that will mess with the wannabe F1 racer’s insurance rates for years to come. Oh, and did we mention the fact this selfish jerk was endangering everyone around them?
Still, the driver is lucky he doesn’t live in West Australia. Hoon laws there (similar to our stunt laws) don’t mess around. “If a person is found guilty of three hoon-related offences inside three years, their vehicle can be permanently forfeited by the court. Upon such a court order being granted, these vehicles can then be disposed of in a manner determined by the Chief Commissioner of Police. If the forfeited vehicle is sold by the State of Victoria, the proceeds from the sale will be retained by the State of Victoria. Alternatively, the vehicle may be crushed or otherwise disposed of by police.”
THEY CAN CRUSH YOUR CAR.
