    Civic hatchback used for street racing crushed live on Fox News, part II

    I love these old Civic hatches and I'm sure this one was souped up real good. It's a pity they're just crushing them in this manner. What a waste.

    Oh I agree you have to pay the price. I believe their car should be taken away as well. But I don't agree with crushing them. I'm not into street racing at all but I'd love to own some of these cars.

    I don't know what this is supposed to accomplish. To scare the person? The media is hyperbolizing the whole "street racing" problem as usual and causing all kinds of judicial overraction as a result. Almost as bad as the paedophiles. Remember parents, don't let your kids out of your site and NEVER outside of the house, chain them to the PS3's for chrissake or the PAEDOPHILES will EAT THEIR BRAINS. Clearly the glorious Western society that our forefathers built upon tenets of freedom is in its death throws as we speak. Soon Nero will burn Rome.

    That is such a waste. They could be donated to Volunteers of America or sold or parted out to help fund the police department. Can they even destroy the cars? Is it some sort of new law in there? I thought impounded cars were kept until the owner pays to get them out or they are auctioned off.

    But seriously, that's just incredibly wasteful. They should at least auction the cars off and put the money towards policing of street racing or something to that degree, not just crushing the cars.

    Yeah I think it's a law. There was a big controversy about it a while back.

    Or they could give them to some Hollywood producers who wants to produce a good "car chase scene", so they could be crushed during various stunts

    I believe Street Racing is a ticket beyond a Reckless if I'm not mistaken. Reckless can wind you up in jail, with a suspended license. I believe a conviction for racing is even more severe. In part because you put others at risk.

    Street racing used to happen in the 50's and 60's nothing new here. That was why the NHRA was created.

    I hope your car doesn't get crushed on the first offense.
