I've been going up to the canyons a lot lately through Azusa Canyon, and I have notice that a lot of idiot people have been driving up there too. I'm not talking about the real twisty roads but just Azusa Canyon. Last night a caravan of people have were driving through there and one person lost control and went off the edge. A girl was killed and two others were critically hurt. So i guess what I'm trying to say is just drive normal, or with the traffic, until you get to the twisty roads and have your fun there. Hardly any people there, except the weirdo's that live in their motor homes up there.

There was a sting operation last night and my friend got a Ref ticket, they blocked off the other side with a fire truck and at the bottom cops were patrolling for modified cars.

i use to go up alot up to GMR and Ridge i would tell everyone to just say it for the track because u would never be able to drive like you do at the track on any mountain even if your delivering "tofu" hahahahahha but people should stay off the public roads and if you think you are pretty fast take it to the track and run against the clock "NO EXCUSES JUST RESULT"

last time i was up there was in my old evo and on the way down there was a car that was upside down. and last time up to gmr same thing an integra flipped over into a ditch. lucky for him it was mountain side so he didnt go off the mountain. same nite though there was an evo up there before it was released. scc was test driving it or somethin. it was back in 02 before the fire closures.

Yea my aunt wen up there for the day in her evo. She was only doing like 10 miles and hour up through the Mt. Baldy side . She was saying there was a cop in front of her and he pulled over and let her pass then lit her up. She yelled out the window and said are you really pulling me over ? lol

He said yeah just for modified exhaust to teach her not too go up there cuz too many cars go and crash.

There cracking down majorly.

She can fight the ticket they are not allowed to patrol with their rear view mirror.

I was in a 1970+ Chevy truck, it belonged to my friend. The thing is loud like no other. We Pulled up right behind a cop at the light, they heard the truck they switched lanes and boom they pull us over. They gave us the usual hard ass attitude and asked why the truck was so loud. So one If its a classic you can have a rocket on that thing and they cant do shit. I think what pissed them off was when my friend gave them a text book reason on why they didn't have a case because they purposely patrolled the car while being in front of us. I wish I knew what he told them exactly it was years ago. Point is they let us go, I guess knowing a little about laws can help.

I totally think it was ridiculous.

But, not sure I agree with the rear-view mirror theory. If they see something going on in their rear view mirror, of course they are going to do something about it. How would you feel if they couldn't patrol cars because they were in front, and some crazy guy was in the car behind them, next to you, waving a loaded gun around?? And he was smoking a joint?

At least I haven't ever heard of a law for that. They can let you by and pull you over if they have reasonable cause at the time, which in both cases they might have. If you don't have a front plate, etc. And, since exhausts are by decibel, if they can hear it, especially in front, they are going to want a look.

But they do go overboard with exhausts, I know this and I don't like it either.

She said she was in 3rd at like 15mph while passing cuz she didn't wanna get popped.

He said he didn't hear it just saw it that's why he gave her the ticket he also popped her hood asked for mods she said none.

She just has a bov and some dress up mods . I told her she needs too fight it.

mbrickner
09-06-2007, 10:17 AM
Yeah, I think she should fight it.. not enough probable cause for the t-stop.
