Exhibition of power is against the law in NV? That kind of makes sense . . .jason (CMEXLR8) said:
Yep, it's serious. here is the ordinance for Las Vegas; If they consider it reckless driving, it's 8 points. I suggest finding a traffic lawyer.jason (CMEXLR8) said:

In SC there is no standarded. It depends on the cop and the mood he is in. Most of the time here the fastest speeders are the cops. It's kinda nice when your in a hurry, you can just get behind one and draft. But seriously, I've been pulled for having one of the five bulbs in my left tail lamp out(Chrysler, not GTO) and other times I have flat unknowingly sped past a cruiser and not get pulled.PontiacGuy said:When I used to drive hot cars years ago I figured that 0 to the speed limit was fair game as long as it wasn't "reckless". I never got a ticket for acceleration and never heard of anyone else getting one.
My new goat has about 800 miles on it now and I am just getting used to the go-fast concept again. What a blast! So how much of a worry is this in Georgia and SC?
You got a ticket for tires sticking out the wheel wells? That sounds like BS to me! Any cops on this forum to retort?PontiacGuy said:I've been driving up and down I-20 from Augusta to Aiken to work for almost 15 years now, so I know the highway game well and can stay out of trouble there. I just never considered that romping out of a red light with the new GTO would be taking a chance.
I did a full hi-perf restoration on a '67 Firebird 400 and was pulled over in Carolina three times with it when I lived near Sumter in the mid-80's. 1) dirty license plate? - yeah, right 2) rear tires outside the wheel wells - well maybe a tad, and 3) never did say, he just looked the car over and checked my license and told me to go. I didn't get a ticket or even a written warning for any of these. It was pretty obvious they just wanted to check out the car and who was driving it.
They want to take a look, well OK that's fine. But please no tickets!
