    Having fun is one thing. But keep it in your lane! Anytime you go over the line, you should be done. Cars or motorcycles.
    That's not a Typo, I just can't spell no so well.

    You get points on your license for tickets, not crashes . . .

    I think there should be more of these videos; with trashed cars and injured drivers. Look kids: This **** is dangerous.

    I don't think trackHQ attracts the kind of people who we need to worry about. All of the videos are publicly available on youtube anyway.

    I think it is possible to get a ticket after a crash, but it would probably have to be obvious like 600ft of skidmarks or something.

    I'm with Emelio on this.

    Despite the bad endings in many of these videos, a lot of kids are bound to get the wrong impression. I like this forum because, while it does allow some good off-topic discussion, it essentially sticks to the track like a set of fresh R-1's.

    Or an online video showing speeding combined with crossing over into the opposing lane.

    I just don't think the cops care. What would motivate any of that? Someone would have to call and complain to even get the ball rolling. The guy already got "fined" a deductible and rates.

    I have a confession to make, I used to drive GMR. I stopped after the brakes almost went out, and the thought of going over the side and not being found got to me.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?
