I emailed Busters a link to this thread to warn them about ruining AWD cars by towing them improperly.

I have no qualm with parents buying their kids a car. What I do have a problem with is when kids are handed the keys to a high powered car that has a million nanny-state driver aides. Sure, daddy's 17 year old son might be able to handle his brand new 450bhp sports car with all the gadgets like traction control, awd, etc., etc. engaged... well, it would take an absolute idiot to make a car like that crash. However, put that same kid behind the wheel of a Fox-bodied 5.0 and that same kid, driving this car the same way he would the other one, would crash within a week.

I don't care if your parents bought you the car, or if you paid for it out of your own savings account. I don't care if you're 16 or 36. There should be no way you're allowed to own a modern, high powered vehicle until you can prove that you're capable of handling a similarly powered (even if it's just power:weight) car without any of the safety net that's typically standard in todays cars. There are too many idiots with incompetent driving abilities that unknowingly rely on the cars computer to correct their mistakes without them even realizing what they've done wrong.

I flipped off a Busters driver, after he cut in front of me almost causing an accident. The driver got out of his truck at a red light, and started pounding on my window screaming, "you wanna fuckin fight me!". After I hung up with 911, I called Busters, explained what happened and gave them his plate number.
They thanked me for the call and assured me they would take care of it, but I still see that loser driving around town in a Busters truck, so no, they definitely don't give a shit.

very true, however its obvious thats not the case in this photo. The tow truck driver clearly has dollies still on his truck. Personally i find it easier to put the car on dollies than to unhook the drive shaft. Also since this is busters towing, and they are known to be the worst and most rude in this city.

Anyways...

The 40km/h impound law is retarded. I'll admit, if cops suspect the cars are going irregularly and dangerously crazy or are street racing, then I support the cops to impound them, but I see so many regular citizens going over 40km/h on #1 highway because that's the flow of traffic and they're driving totally safe and normal.

80km/h on highway 1, 50km/h on Steveston Hwy and Marine Drive are ALL FUCKING JOKE.

when im in a good mood i cruise on hwy 1 doing 80km flate, people ride me like they gonna eat me. many times i seen the flow of the traffic is 110-120km and im the ass slowing mofos down on the hwy.


fucking law


so do 38-39km over the speed limite than u dont get ur car impounded. I could careless how much the speeding ticket is, but impounding my car with idiot tow truck drivers is just fucking ridiculous. I gurantee a fucking homo pig will tag u with excessive ticket when u are doing 37km just so they can impound you if they feel like it
more power to these power tripping pigs, thats just
