It has finally happened and I feel bad

Last night I had to take my brother back home from work since we carpool together and work at the same hospital. He had pink eye so he couldnt be around his patients. As i was taking him home i was trying to get back as fast as i could to my patients and I ........ killed a baby bunny that jumped out in the road. I wasn't speeding it was just too dark and it jumped out so fast. I feel so bad about it. To make things worse as i was heading back to work and i my camaro in tapshift mode and it was set to m1 ( rpms go really high) and a cop happens to drive by as i take off. I was not flooring it but i wasnt easy on the throttle and i was only accelerating up to the speed limit but with my MRT exhaust it sounded like i was speeding. I have never been pulled over and I have driven since i was 16 in high school and all through college and now i am 22. I am lucky that the officer was nice and let me off with a warning. Now i know why I didnt need that V8 that i could of gotten when i went camaro shopping last october.



I still feel bad for the baby bunny

I believe the police call that Hole Shooting. A friend of mine received a ticket for that in the past.

Ya no joke, I got a warning for it a few years back (might actually have the stub here somewhere).

I guess it is to basically cover burn outs,gunning it from red lights etc.



It wasn't a fine though so I didn't give it another thought, could have been some BS the cop made up for all I know.

You can get a ticket for that, it can be considered "Exhibition of speed" I believe, or even reckless driving, depends on the officer I suppose.

In Florida it is, so is enticing a race ... They take street racing very serious here and have zero tolerance for it.

They call it "exhibition of speed" in Pennsylvania.

Why do you feel bad about getting a warning ticket, and for some bogus crap at that?

He feels bad about the bunny he ran over, not the warning.

Cops are out in force this spring in CT. Pass many speed traps on my trips to the Beach.

The times I got stopped for this, it was called "illegal take off". Then again it's been a while since I've gotten this one.
