Interesting. Last time they did this, they indiscriminately targeted anything modified, regardless of driving behaviour.I was out last Sunday and saw a minority of people driving even remotely aggressively. Harley riders were more of a nuisance on any given weekday.I'm all for it if they're targeting moving violations. But **** 'em if they're going to be assholes on every equipment violation, on what for a lot of people is the one day a week they drive their car around for more than a short jaunt. There has to be give and take.
This is pretty accurate.I have been pulled over many times and it has never been for a driving violation but always for vehicle modifications.
"They recognize that most of the people taking part in cruise nights are responsible drivers, but they will be cracking down on those not acting responsibly"Like sequence said, if you drive responsible and cruise like a normal person you will be fine. That is if the police keep their word, which personally i believe they would. It seems they are just trying to make cruise night more enjoyable and safe.
So if I go rumbling down the street driving ms daisy in a 1000hp car they wouldn't pull me over ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Based off events ive heard about tonight, it seems they are targeting modified cars, but for logical reasons.So far ive heard of two things they are looking for:1 - Exhaust - Must be baffled. (i assume there is more to it.)2 - Suspension - Height specifically - Wheels cant rub on the fenders(from lock to lock) or in general i guess.And then i would also assume standard things like tint and so on.This is all i know of so far to my understanding. They are okay with modified cars, as long as those mods are safe, ie rubbing tires is not safe.They are live tweeting about some of their infractions being handed out and reasoning why.https://twitter.com/wpgpolice
That seems reasonable. They said they like modified cars just safely done. I can respect that. But if they're pulling me over and like OMG you have a turbo in n/a car y u have turbo no no . Obviously jokes , I know cops don't talk like that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Yea exactly, its reasonable. AND if you dont want to run in to issues like being pulled over, dont go out on a sunday night. Cops/News warned everyone that police will be cracking down on people. Doesnt mean you still wouldnt get pulled over any other day, but have a better chance on cruise night. That also being said if you drive an unsafe vehicle, you should probably fix it, otherwise you are pretty much giving VIU a perfect reason to pull you over and get yourself into an even bigger headache.
how exactly do they check if an exhaust is baffled?
I feel like I might be in trouble then
this ^^^drive like a normal human and you wont get pulled over.if you get pulled over driving within the law what do you have to worry about really? if your car is legal they can't ticket you for something you didn't do
