    A reminder to all WSM members about TX2K14

    A friendly reminder to all members who are going to participate in the TX2K14 event:

    Please exercise mature judgment in the next few days leading up to this event. Many people have come to Htown to street race and all of the local police departments are well aware of this and will be out in full force. Do not be tempted to engage in illegal street racing on the local freeways, access roads or back roads. Please respect yourself and all others around you and keep it on the track.

    Also don't be one of those attention whore retards who does a burnout in a public parking lot. Nobody likes that guy.
    If I find out a member does a burnout or goes drifting in a parking lot I will ban you from WSM for life.

    Just in case anyone thinks ppl don't get arrested for this, I have two cases in my court right now, complete with video from the dash cam. They will more than likely both get 6 mo. probation or a differed offer but its going cost them 1000's in fees, fines and attorney costs. Was not TX2K14 related so it even happens on a normal weekend as well.

    Can vouch for this. I wasn't even racing, or driving spirited for that matter, when I got popped for "reckless driving/street racing. 36 hours in jail, a year of probation, about 5k out of pocket (not including time lost from work), 100 hours of community service, the list goes on...

    Damn "1a" happens to me daily when pulling onto the freeway. I had no idea it was drag racing. I thought it was just jerks trying to pull in ahead of everyone else taking their time to patiently get onto the freeway.
