Question Triple Digits, Wheelies and General Haulin the Mail

Quote:
Dont you think if the city wrote tickets instead of jail that people wouldnt run? Its kinda like, "im going to jail if I pull over so lemme try to get away."

And I know the charges are different but no one wants to go to jail for anything.

Please tell me you don't actually believe this.
If mph on public roads, or wheelies or haulin on backroads WAS NOT an arrestable offense and only a citation, do you think people would be less likely to evade?

I rely on MH polls to determine whether it is me that is out of touch with reality.

Well, aparently I am the moron for thinking that citations would reduce the number of evading instances.

I seriously think that people are waaaaay out of touch with the general consensus of the moto community.

Perhaps they should park their track bikes and get out and mingle.
