I guess A for effort?

I find this whole big wheel trend to be quite dumb, BTW. The only thing a bigger wheel does better is looks. They suck at everything else like performance and fuel economy.

Those cool 19" wheels on those new family cars are all 30+ pounds.

Now if you get forged wheels, then yes, you can improve your cornering, but you know the rule:

Big, light, cheap, pick two.

I guess that you start to grade on a curve after seeing all of the awful things on this thread.

Doesn't look like the police car caught on fire because it was going too fast. To me, it looks like the catalytic converter lit the tall grass below it on fire.

Why do they pull over on the left side of the road, anyway?

I lived in Florida for a long time. We all knew not to park on the tall grass when it was dry. Still had one friend lose a car to parking in the grass. (Common to park on grass lots/yards. Few curbs in much of FL.)

Because the speeder was an idiot. But would have been the same on the right side.

I am not actually sure this will run... It's be hilarious if it does.
