: Here the avg speed of traffic is around 75.
: when I am cruising the 405 in my M roadster it never fails.
: Some kid in his honda powered unit ( I am guessing its Honda powered by the stickers all over it) will come along side and start trying to get me to play tag. They usually rev up their Maxwell House exhaust can system to impress me.
: Then, while at 75-80, I just push the pedal to the floor.. In the M, I just walk away from them. Don't even have to downshift!!! Usually they stop pestering me after that. :)
If I did that here in utah. I would spend a long time in jail.Cops here just wait for me to get 1 MPH over and throw the book at you.My record is not to bad right now.I need to keep it that way.They would give you show of speed, reckless driving, and speeding,and whatever else they could make up.The kid in the honda could be drinking jack daniels and smoking from a water bong with no tags and they wouldn't notice him.
