    Hey guys, not sure if i'm posting in the right area, so mods please move this if need be:

    THIS MADE ME SO MAD WHEN I WATCHED THIS!!!!!
    i wanted to cry, this is totally unfair!!!!!! if stolen parts and street racing are really this big of an issue, crushing cars isn't the right solution to the problem!

    YouTube - Crush Em !!! ...illegal street racers cars crushed


    seriously, i think this is bullshit... anyone else agree with me?

    I don't know if anyone else noticed but in the first shot on the far left hand corner is that a NSX!? But yeah this isn't right to do. Hell even impound there cars, make them pay a few hundred to get it back plus fines. Or strip them and sell the parts, the PD will be the biggest parts dealer out there and make a lot of money for the state if they did that. But that's someones blood sweat and a lot of cash. Sure street racing is stupid but it'll always be around and if people think this will stop them, it'll just cause a lot of high speed pursuits, more death and just a lot more tax payers money.

    Moral of the story...keep it on the tracks

    they should crush them with the drivers in them.
    thats the only problem i see.

    do stupid shit, you get fucked.
    dont want your car crushed? dont steal/buy stolen items. and dont race like a douche bag. i dont care how cool your uber tight crazy 1 of a kind jdm your fresh new wHip is, its still a fucking honda, and a street car, take it to a track, or loose your ride.
    i think its good.
    except, like i said, the drivers should be in the car.

    also, this isnt new. didnt they implement this about 2 or 3 years ago?

    these people knew what they were doing was illegal. you should be thankful, thanks to the amount of hondas that are destined to be crushed, the value of yours is to stay up.

    i think crushing it is stupid. it should go to a junkyard/put up for auction.

    however, i have no problem with them taking the cars away from the dipshit owers who jepoardize other lives.

    I'm not sure, I remember seeing it but I think they stopped it because of lack of funds or some reason or to catch people off guard

    Street racing is a problem. Obviously fines and jail time do nothing, impounding and selling them back to the problem isn't doing anything either.

    Spend 20 grand on your Integra, do something stupid and watch it get crushed. You think that isn't going to teach the idiot something? It sucks, sure. Don't be a fucking moron and you'll be fine.

    I believe they are given the option to watch. I remember seeing a bid a long time ago where the owners were watching, discussing about what was happening. One guy was talking then you heard a loud bang, he stopped and said "well, that was the nos bottle."

    If it was cost effective to confiscate and strip them of their illegal parts and then just sell what remains at auction or something I'd be more for that. Crushing them blows. I'd love to get a job there if you were able to snag whatever you could so long as it was street legal before they hit the crusher.

    Think of the body parts that are getting crushed that could keep your perfectly legal car road-worthy that are just wasted. Your cars value may go up if its in good condition and you HAVE all the parts. Otherwise its just more expensive to FIND good parts.

    with the millions of civics produced, i assure you crushing a few dip shits cars, who were illegally racing or were sporting stolen equipment, is not going to make even the slightest dent in the availability of junkyard parts

    these things arent exactly rare

    I'm not talking civics so much as the inevitably confiscated muscle cars and such.

    Most cop shops cannot afford to keep and maintain a used car dealership. Sure it sucks that they get crushed but blame the ass bags behind the wheel.

    If your going to street race, buy something faster than the police cars that will eventually be chasing you.

    they could just have like a scrap yard, you take the part off and then they charge you whatever it's worth or at discounted price. I think it could work but some call me an optimist

    the thing w/ putting it up for auction is that they'd putting the cars back on the street to do the same thing again ..
