    So these kids got tickets, yet nobody witnesses any races happen? Sounds like the govnmt is in the wrong, no proof? $#@! you.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I remember posting something similar in the race section. A Ferrari and an M something BMW were caught racing and the cars were impounded. I believe it was in Canada.

    I'd be so horny for impounding exotics if I could but this is getting out of hand. It's just being greedy at this level. It's not about punishing irresponsible drivers.

    Police grab $2 million worth of cars after Canadian street race

    This could be the plot for a movie, "Fast and Furious Canada," or maybe "Fast and Furious, the Young and the Rich."
    Police in British Columbia say they impounded $2 million worth of high-end vehicles this week after witnesses reported the 13 cars racing on a metro Vancouver highway at speeds of 125 mph (200 kph).
    The high-end race cars included a Ferrari, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, an Audi, an Aston Martin, Nissans and a Mercedes, according to a Royal Canadian Mounted Police press release.
    Two of the racers would run side-by-side to block other traffic going in their direction on the highway while the others cars would take off in a race, witnesses told the RCMP.
    "These drivers seemed to be looking for attention. Well, they definitely got the attention of police," Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Lower Mainland District Regional Police Service, said in the press release.
    What the racers, who police said are all under age 21, won't get is harsh punishment.
    "Each driver will be charged with Driving without Reasonable Consideration and receive a violation ticket with a specified penalty of $196. Additionally, these drivers will be responsible for all associated towing and storage charges," according to the RCMP press release.
    That's because police didn't actually catch them in the act and acted only on witness accounts. They weren't caught on radar, video or seen by a police officer, Superintendent Norm Gaumont, RCMP officer in charge of traffic enforcement for the Lower Mainland, told the Surrey Now newspaper.
    "I know there's a lot of disappointment, wondering why we only charged them with an offence of $196. They fact of the matter is, we have to look at all the evidence we have and what we're able to prove," Surrey Now quoted Gaumont as saying. "That's why we've charged them with driving without due consideration for the public."
    If police were able to charge the 13 drivers with more severe offenses, they could have faced forfeiture of their vehicles, according to a Vancouver Sun report.
    The RCMP said most of the drivers were operating their vehicles on "N" class licenses, which means they had not yet attained full driving privileges. Only one of the drivers was the registered owner of the car they were driving, Gaumont told Surrey Now.
    The drivers included 12 men and one woman, according to Surrey Now. Gaumont told the paper they were on their way to have a meal when they decided to race.
    According to the Sun, the vehicles were:
    • 2007 Ferrari 599
    • 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo
    • 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo
    • 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo
    • 2009 Audi R8
    • 2012 Nissan GT-R
    • 2010 Nissan GT-R
    • 2010 Nissan GT-R
    • 2010 Maserati Turismo
    • 2010 Maserati Turismo
    • 2011 Mercedes SL63
    • 2011 Mercedes SLS
    • 2005 Aston Martin DB9

    Mom and Dad of course--I went to college (in the 90's) with quite a few kids who had new f-cars, p-cars, Vipers, etc. I felt like a pauper with my brand new 3 series coupe--most of the big money cars were owned by foreign students, I think they just had to buy these cars in the US because in their country they are at least double the price!
