Six bikes inpounded on the sts last night

# Thread: Six bikes inpounded on the sts last night

1. ## Six bikes inpounded on the sts last night

I just watched a video on bclocalnews.com of air 2 catching aprox 6 bikes on the STS last night at around 8:00pm. *INPOUNDED* I hope it wasnt you

2.

3. way to ruin someone's month/summer. if you play w/ fire you might get burned and a hole in your pocket.

4. I can't believe that there are still people going there to speed. I'm not sure I feel for them.......

5. "he was doing at least 180, northbound"

That's a visual estimation from a thousand feet on the air, is it not? My understanding of radars and lasers is that they only work on the 2 dimensional field, and not 3 dimensional (from being up in the sky). Can someone clarify if this would hold up in court?

I can see how most definitely that the first 2 riders that crossed the double yellow will lose a fair trial, but as for the guy who pulled over in the 2nd part of the video, it doesn't really seem like they have too much on him.

BTW, I saw a dozen cars in the video doing at least 120 in the 80 zone. Why are the cops only targetting riders, giving their full attention right to us.

Yes this will hold up. What they do usually is look for 2 different landmarks next to the hwy, mark what time you passed the first one and then see how long it takes you to reach the other. Then using physics --> distance = velocity x time they can get an average of your speed over that distance. Ive noticed white lines painted next to the road at regular intervals in sections patrolled by aircraft.

7. yupyup... this is a trollfest... anyone that disconnected to roll the bones on those roads is a bit thick imho...

again.. being a firm believer in good juju and all of that....THANK and PRAISE the LEOs for sticking to the hivis, main stretches!!

once they stake out a remote set of twisties waiting for the sunday morning boys, then THAT will be a tragedy!!

8. KillahK speaks the truth!

Too bad those Island people are pretty much trapped in BC. At least those smart main-landers just go south of the border. This whole weekend is going to be a massive heat score on 99 all the way to Pemberton, and 3 all the way to Penticton, and 1 all the way to Lytton.
