in street racing, something which most police are trying to stop. This comes as a surprise, since just 4 years ago in Ontario, police set out a new law which punishes anyone for going over 50kph over the speed limit. Thus starting a war on street racing. Over the past 4 years the province of Ontario has lost many jobs due to the decrease in spending from people within the street racing world. Therefore the police have been contributing to the downfall of the Automotive economy of Southern Ontario.
On top of the downfall to the economy and a new law, the police have been going after not only street racers, but track racers. Even before the implementation of the 50 over law, police had been known to hang outside the gates of most Ontario racetracks, where they would hand out tickets to racers bringing their cars to the tracks. And what type of tickets were they giving out, they were giving out tickets for off the shelf illegal parts. Or what they deemed as illegal parts. This has also added into the downfall of the racing industry within the province of Ontario.
Now you may ask how two mindless cops in Calgary, Alberta have to do with the street racing industry in Ontario. Well that question is answered within the question. They were street racing, something that all police across Canada are against and are trying everything to stop. So when they are caught breaking this law that they "over" uphold, all they get is a slap on the wrist.
Unfortunately for the rest of us who keep people in Canada and U.S. working, we have to lose our cars, pay hefting fines and even do jail time. It seems like that the police are above a law which they see as the most dangerous thing that happens on our streets. If I have to remove the window tint on my car because it is too dark, then these cops should have had their cars impounded, pay the $10,000 fine and do an over night stay in jail. But unfortunately for the rest of who support a vital industry, we are the only ones who get punished.
AutoLooks does not say street racing is a safe sport which you should go out there and do, but when the ones who uphold laws which are against street racing break them, they should have to pay, just like everyone else. And as for ticketing fellow racers on their way to the track. Leave them alone, since all they want to do is race in a safe environment where the only ones at risk, are themselves.
