Smart things to do in front of police officers

Yeah... not really...



And then, "look ma, no brains":



Or you could be like these guys. Check for police officers before doing a standing burnout on a public road. :roll:

An old auto teacher of mine told us of his run-in with the law at a stop light. This one car of his had front/rear split brake circuits, and he installed a line lock to keep his front brakes on. He had a 'Cuda at one point, but I don't think this was with that car. Stopped at a red light, the car beside him revs their engine. He flips on the line lock and proceeds to do a full standing burnout right at the intersection. Halfway through, he hears a knock on his window and a uniformed officer is standing right outside with a smirk on his face. He slowly backs off the throttle and rolls down his window. Turns out that there was an unmarked cruiser stopped right behind him at the light which took the brunt of the burnout smoke. :lol:

This was back in the Good Ol' Days so the cop basically said "stop that" and left. 8)

You should have jogged in place alongside his window, yelling "Slow down!" while grabbing your hat to keep it from flying off.

Had you done a lap or two around the vehicle, your laundryman would have hated you for all the mud on the uniform!
