I drove at the tail end of the BayBimmerz caravan for the first half of the trip, and I didn't see anyone pulled over by the CHP. That was unusual and probably a first. I did witness a couple of our guys who should have been pulled over for driving like complete @ssholes and provoking some road rage. That was a first for me going back to 2003.

Jo from eurodynes LSB touring and a black e36 m3 got their cars impounded for 30 days after racing in the lot after most everyone left. The e36 proceeded to do donuts as the cop was rolling up. Also in my caravan (SD) one guy rear ended another. A grey ZHP into a white e46 m3.

I only saw the PD SUV at the end around 5pm or so just driving through the lot. And a couple of idiots doing burnouts just before that while people were still walking through the parking lot.

It takes a couple years for PDs to catch up and realize the annual cash opportunity.

That's good. Hopefully by then we will have changed venues again. That way we can keep ahead of the greed.
