You should keep that kind of thing off the street. Look for Drifting Track Days in the spring on son240sx.org

Off ramps are best, especially the ones with big ditches.

Wrong, wrong, and wrong. Everyone knows the parking lot at Toronto Police HQ is best at night. It's private property, so you won't get ticketed either. Usually the cops enjoy the show and won't ask you to leave. provided you bring a few timbits. In my experience, they love the chocolate ones.

It's not legal anywhere...keep in mind even in a big empty parking lot in a remote industrial area in the middle of the night can still get you charged with dangerous driving, or noise violations (tire squealing and loud exhaust) if there is a cop around.

I'm sorry, but I don't see how this is possible. The dangerous driving charge is an offence from the HTA, if you're on private property (not on a plublic road/highway) they cannot charge you with that.

This I see possible, as well as loitering or somethings stupid like that.

They can charge you with whatever they want and it's up to you to go to court to get it thrown out. The noise one will stand but if you're on private property anything else will be dropped but it's still a pain in the ass to go fight it. I've been charged with stuff before that they weren't allowed to charge you with and the prosecutor dropped it without me even having to argue it but I still lost an afternoon of work.
