who from LA got a ticket?

well... sad to say I DID!

my friend with the estroil blue m3, black bbs's was racing a 335 going at it about 145 and didnt get pulled over!

yet because he got off the 101 we posted aside for him and CHP came and gave me and my cousin a ticket for pulling over in a restricted area!!

and my passenger got a ticket for urinating!

anyways. i know you guys took pics. I was in a dark grey 2006 330i, cousin was in a black m3, stock both of them.

sucked, cuz i missed the 2 biggest parts of the caravan and the part when everybody pulled over....

so anybody else that i didnt see...?

Wow, it's amazing that he ticketed you for pulling off, when at various times we had 30+ cars pulled off on the shoulder. Close to the fest, there were cars on both sides of the 101.

my point exactly, i mean you cant really control those but i was hoping to see the pullovers my friend that we stoped for passed us and told us he saw that. whatever it was about 20 minutes away from SB.. right b4 it went into 2 lanes.

but i think its cuz he saw my friend urinating lol

i shoulda ran off when i saw him staring me down on the other side of the 101. whatever u learn! i still had fun =)

so ...yet again anyone else have stories?

145mph

I'm sure IF your friend was caught doing 145 his license would have been revoked on the spot and car towed.

I wish he did, that is just plain reckless and dangerous. Theres a bunch of A** wipes racing down the freeway zigzagging left to right, one missing my front by a hair. What's the point of street racing? ego filler?

im sorry but if a mans gotta pee hes gotta pee, it wont burn the asphalt on the groud. so indeed its very classy.

2. 145 had nothing to do with ego or anything like that, yes its fast, yes its risky, but people just have an adrenalin rush (cant spell it) and do what they do...

i did 100 straight line at most, i didnt need a moving violation.

Saw a few cops hovering around the Meguair's car as well, not sure what's up with that. If they were giving out tint tickets at the 'Fest to parked cars, that'd be ridiculous. Multiple cars got pulled over on the way from SD -> SB (about 10) I'm assuming the SB cops were enjoying the 'Fest themselves and just talking to the Meguair's person

I saw many police officers on my way to the fest, my V1 alerted them all
Saw some that had peeps pulled over.

However what caught my attention was the ride home, we say 8 cars pulled over at various locations on the 101 S. Of the eight, seven were BMWs and one was an Acura.
Just wondered if they were picking on BMW owners due to the fest?

yea bout the green car the owner told me they were jsut taking info down no tickets..?

but the cops were aware of fest and the caravan timing etc. right b4 camarillo that downhill goin north, a cop was waiting at the top, and the next 2 bridges were cops with motorcycles spotting upcoming traffic.

they were ready for this ****.

also my cousin over heard the cops saying when they wrote him up after me

"these bmw's think they can do whatever they want and park where ever they want, we'll get 'em all."

pretty bitchy in my opinion.

Actually, it's pr!cks like you that make this kind of stuff happen. Thanks! Really appreciate that your impression of your d!ck is so small that you have to create a hazard for other people on the road. Or that you're too brainless to realize that the police/sheriff/CHP are just waiting around events like this to nab people and bloat their revenue stream.

If you want to go fast, take it to the track. Then you might actually realize how slim the margin for error is that you really have and how bitching about tickets that you CAUSED YOURSELF TO GET on a public forum will get you limited sympathy.

And before you give me that BS "sometimes you just gotta go" line, get a focking racing license and go to whatever event is closest. Trust me on this one. Passing law abiding citizens on the free way is easy. Passing people on track who know how to drive and don't want you to get past is where men are separated from boys, boy.

That has to be the gayest thing ive ever read!!!!!

Plus pissing in public is just some minor fine. Its no big deal. Its just like a littering ticket but you feel much more relieved after!

Also he has a good point of not always going 65 on the freeway or 45 on the streets. Because i know i always drive about 75mph and probably 50mph on the streets. $hit i guess that means im a douche bag and love to fly by people that arnt racing me. (But what they dont know is that im racing them!!! hahahahahahaah) I win!
