And this is exactly why we need to calm the **** down on the 400 and 11 in order to not draw attention to ourselves. I still think we'll be ok in the backroads for the most part.

Time and place, people.

Totally agree... see some of the discussion from the Autumn 2014 cruise... it's a pity that the user axxessdenied took down his video from youtube... he definitely showed some stupid things not to do - especially using merging lanes to pass people.

The interesting thing about this is did the OPP witness this happening or just went by what people called in about? I don't condone that sort of reckless highway driving one bit, but I'm genuinely curious as to what they acted on. If they had a chopper up or actually saw some of the stuff happen then sure, but part of me suspects they literally heard about a bunch of cars driving like morons and then pulled all of them over. If that's the case, how can they issue citations based on not actually seeing what happened? That's straight up guilt by association.

Of course I'm just speculating here but this is rather concerning just based off what the article said.

Bottom line is don't do dumb shit to put yourself in that situation in the first place. With dash cams rampant (not to mention the risk to safety), it's best not to do these things on such busy highways.

I watched the video after my first post, and I was thinking the same thing. The cops must have gotten some eyes on them, because they can't just issue tickets on the say so of witnesses alone. They have to catch them in the act. I bet some of those drivers of the confiscated cars will be able to fight it and win.

Lets not be kidding ourselves, with ALLL the social media posts, the police KNOWS what is going on, WHEN and WHERE! So its very normal that they bust a few "cruises"...

Now for my new mods and toys to arrive, and then this weather to break. I need M in my life.
