E93 Pulled for street racing

Last night on Burnhamthorpe heading west from Hurontario - a E93 and a VW Golf GTi got towed for street racing.

Don't know full story, but the bmw driver was a older male with what looked like a 8-12 yr old kid [his son]. Couldn't tell who was driving the golf.

Stupid for stopping. They can't chase both.
If I am ever doing something so serious that it warrants my car impounding or arrest, I might as well make sure that I get on the 11o'clock news. Pedal to the floor.

True. But the guy had his kid in the car, trying to evade police and risking 2 lives in danger opposed to a hefty stupid fine and insurance rape for a while. I'd pull over.

If the driver is wealthy enough I'm sure he doesn't care. Hire some laywers and they'll take care of it.

The moral police officers will probably attack you for admitting that but i definitely agree lol!

While driving on the 410 on the weekend i saw what appeared to be a E36 M3 and a Saab, both pulled over by an undercover dodge caravan and my initial thought was, why would they both stop?

They stopped because they were caught, (assuming they were speeding);
majority of the people who were caught.. would stop and face the consequences
and not willing to compound the matter...like crashing into another vehicle while trying to escape the arm of the law....
