Ban boy racers


What is it with banning things at the moment, let’s ban party pills, let’s ban gangs, lets ban boy racers, while we are at it could we ban crime and ban world hunger? Let’s just reflect on how one would or could ‘ban’ boy racers, see I think the laws are tough enough and strong enough to deal with the problems of boy racers, hell cops can impound their cars off them now, it is whether police have enough resources put aside to deal with boy racers. There is one issue I would bring up though and that is the ease with which young guys can buy fast performance vehicles and how easy it is for them to get finance for those cars. My thinking is that you should need a specific license for high performance cars rather than the open slather system now, but then that would be a limit to consumer choice, so I’m doubtful of any move in that direction.

Death spurs plan to ban boy-racers
Police in Tauranga say they are hard-pressed to deal with boy-racers who travel there from as far away as Hamilton and Auckland for illegal street racing and "burnouts". An anti-boy-racer bylaw that imposes rolling street curfews is expected to be adopted in Tauranga after a young man was killed by a car in a street race. Scott Jarrod Finn, 20, was killed early on Saturday by a car travelling at 160km/h as he watched an illegal car race in Mt Maunganui. The drivers of both cars in the race have been charged with manslaughter.

If you needed a special license for "high performance" cars then the kids would just race slow cars.

Which a lot of them do anyway. A Corolla with turbo stickers and a power exhaust is a bit slower than an ordinary Corolla (the exhaust stops the engine running properly) but makes lots of noise and annoying popping sounds.

What!!! rich, so the scene according to you, these "boyracers" only put the exhuasts on to anoy people (like you maybe?) and if they introduce this licence they will start racing slower cars.... haha this is just to much.
Fuck it then Rich lets just kill them all. That way they wont be a problem for you fogezz... what ya reckon? Cant you see how thick that sounded?

I dont think you have a glue as to what your talking about though rich... just to add your bleat bleat like the rest of the old farts out there...far out

Not all people thats into the tuner scene, do wheelies down the street...But the councils bylaw, of banding gathering, isn't that a breech of their Human Rights?

Sorry but this country is fucked..
Winge fucking winge.. you wanna solve it give them a controlled place to do all the drag racing etc etc in there towns and they wont be doing it on the street, much....seems simple... or is that just for the Rich people, to have racing venues.

Bomber, I just want to set things straight, I realise you and all the others out there that dont know much about the Car Import scene, so I hope to enlighten you... (hope)

I agree, yes you can go out and buy a high performance cars from places like Fast fours LTD in Auckland ... But most.. this is not the case, I belong to a registered Car club, ChosenFew awesome bunch of people, our club is International and Nationwide... we dont accept drink driving and the drivers are responsible for anyone in there car...we dont go out burning up the streets... but the heat that comes down because of a few, chases us all.

Now the car scene is about buying cheap cars and modifing them into performance cars... we dont buy them, we build them.. my car s15 200sx, I brought damaged rebuilt the whole thing with mods make 650HP... I get hassled for that yet Mr ferrai or Mr Porsche 911 doesn't.... why because my car costs a 1/3 of his and beats it down the 1/4 mile...

These bylaws as just forcing the "boyracers" to go to the back alley's to do there stuff... why? is not a place we can get together to do this...Auckald has "Drag Warz" at Meremere.. Most of them that moan... what was it in there day V8's, big chevy's or Fords , bikes.. indians, Harleys or Triumphs... seems a bit over the top... The Police powers are extreme, if you overtake a car at speed the police can impound it under the "boyracer" law for exhibting of speed... please... I am fucking off to Aussie in 6 months were as it seems ... their they are a little more grown up.
NZ got a long way to go.

"BoyRacer"

Its not the Boy racers, its the tug muscle wanna bes with the black windows that go and commit crime, then run for it after they get caught. Im 56 drive a real nice V8 ford that I like a lot of kids has done up with the help of teenagers, they get to drive it as well but in controlled circumstance.The wanna be petty thugs are the ones that cause the problems but then bomber walks in bare feet smokes dope (whooops he is one)and hugs trees, thats why he doesnt like fast cars.

I don't care if you want to buy a nana car and fit it with silly gizmos and stickers (that bear no relation to anything actually fitted on the car).

It only slightly irritated me when I wanted to buy a factory WRX that hadn't been fucked with by a spotty 19-year old (here or in Japan).

Didnt i mention before in another post, that these turds dwell in deep dark black holes... is it the full moon that brings these turds, oozing to the surface to leave there 2 cents of crap.... yet I can only guess the other turds were all gathered around the computer, with a bewildered steer, while master chief wrote his 2 cents worth.

I am so insulted and cut to the heart, please excuse mye Bomber I must run off to my room and cry the insult of this (Anon)blogger is just to much....

Anon you mean bastard...

Ps I dont need to worry about money anon, neither am I on the benefit, as you assume.... lol

I reckon we shouldn't ban boy racing because it is something us youth kids enjoy, yes I know it is dangerous but couldn't we atleast do boy-racing in an open area such as a big desert! That way we wouldn't be able to hurt anyone...But the one thing i would like to be banned is smacking, so then I wouldn't have to put up with it at home

Okay just throwing this little thing that f**ks me off with some people, what is a wheelie? last time i checked it was when the front wheels of a car lift off the ground or on a bike the front wheel gets airbourne from peddle power. So next time you say "Not all people thats into the tuner scene, do wheelies down the street..." can you f**kn think about it for a second? how many cars manage to drive around on slicks and a s**t load of power to do wheelies? Sorry but the NZ laws are getting s**ter every week. It seems the law is getting only targeted at young people and japanese cars. Just wanted to throw my opinion in there because im sick of old people complaing of boy racers when im sure they did they same or similar things in their day and also you cant stop "boyracers" theres always going to be gatherings on thursday night and its never gonna stop. If you could just make somwhere people with powerful cars can go and rip BURNOUTS (not wheelies) with out getting in trouble it'd be sorted. annnnd full exhaust systems from the headers to tailpipe arent there for the noise theyre there for the power.
