Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
I don't care what sort of road you are on, short of a closed course...170 mph is too fast in the US. You'd be hard pressed to get a ZR1 up to 170 on road Atlanta, let alone a PUBLIC highway. At 170 mph, you travel almost 280 feet per second. Each second. There is a reason why many German autobahn cruisers are governed to 155mph. Past a certain speed, you're just not safe for others around you, even if you're Mario Andretti. The ZR1 is a fast car, yes. But does anyone here know what starts to happen to the rubber in tires after 145mph? Or have any clue what happens when you touch the brakes at 150mph or higher?
This guy should have his license revoked for a while.
You know falling bullets can hurt people and damage property all over my neighborhood. Best case scenario, you're littering.
Meanwhile someone driving along a road not hitting anyone is not hurting anyone...
Sometimes I think we should have special licensing requirements to drive some cars on public roads...but it wouldn't work, and it would be too expensive.
But so many well off, mid life crisis suffering adults the world over buy status symbols with little to no clue what 500+ hp actually means.
Yank the car away. This person obviously does not deserve it. Only a fool stops at 170mph simply because they saw a cop.
There's a video on youtube of a motorcycle doing 170 on an interstate as he passes a trooper in the median. The bike never slows down and makes a quick exit a minute or so later. That's how you do it.
