Exhibition of Acceleration is no longer a state offense, but that doesn't stop money hungry jurisdictions (like Galveston) to put it as a local offense. And it is on Galveston County's books:

Exhibition of Acceleration $131

More like juris--shun, but they have to deal with so many stupid idiots I can see why they get dickish. Most common offense (about 75-80% of the tickets in the court with about 45 people) when I was in the court was no driver's license.

If a cop pulls up behind you and has his lights on, pull over. If he pulls over behind you then stay there. If he passes you, proceed. This rule of thumb works for all 50 US states.
