We have specific areas of the city where you could find all the races you wanted just cruising. 90% of my kills happen there as it is also a route I take for work late at night most times.

New X5m with dealer tags still on it and a 600cc bike both ate it at same light Monday night. Bike should have been closer, but kid couldn't get out of hole with it properly and it was over before he knew it.

Bad news is, speed cameras are coming to the road by years end.

Not sure if this stuff really works against cameras but it's been around for awhile. Maybe it's worth a try... https://www.phantomplate.com/

Similarly, I've been using radar detectors/scramblers for more than a decade now. There aren't a 100% but they seem to work pretty well, especially at a distance. If you are too close to the radar, forget it.

They are converting the known red light cameras to speed cameras on this particular road, so that's not a big deal, as there are maybe 5 within the city limits. The big question is if they will add more or even start using portable ones.

We shall see. And TBH, it is a notoriously dangerous stretch of road, as you get some real dopes thinking every light is a drag strip.

most people have no clue how to race. a lot of fly bys by the rookies. no one is smart enough to actually line up and race. maybe to scared to loose. I had one real race in my Raptor VS a F150 he was smart enough to pull up honk 3 times and launch, no one else seems to under stand this.
