yep, this is an extreme example of speeding but it's going to open the door for anyone who is busted for speeding to get their car seized/stolen by the cops.    Just wait, it's coming.

NYPD trying to seize notorious speeder's car

The NYPD is looking to treat a speed demon who raced around Manhattan in a souped-up BMW in 26 minutes the way it does drug dealers, the New York Post reports.

Cops want to seize the 2006 BMW Z4 roadster that Adam Tang used to complete a record-fast predawn lap around the borough this past August.

The NYPD filed a lawsuit against the 30-year-old day trader on Monday asking the court to force him to surrender the sports car because it was used to “further the commission of a crime.”

Casey W. Raskob, a veteran Traffic Court attorney, called the forfeiture motion “very rare” for a motorist not tangled up in drug dealing or driving under the influence.

Tang, who posted a video of the stunt on YouTube, was charged in September with reckless driving and endangerment.

At the time, police impounded the $50,000 ride.

Raskob said the reckless-endangerment charge allows police to make their case for the vehicle’s surrender.

“I think they’re doing it to make an example out of him, because the last thing they want people doing is blowing around the ring road of Manhattan trying to beat that time,” Raskob said.

Years ago (more than 10), NY tried to pass a law where drunk drivers would have their car seized and never returned. The bases for it was that if you're driving drunk and run someone over, it's manslaughter. Therefore driving drunk is attempted manslaughter, and the vehicle is the weapon to the attempted crime. They wanted to seize the vehicles of drunk drivers as evidence to a crime and never return it. Obviously it didn't pass, but they tried to pass it.


With this speed thing it's interesting. The guy did it, and nobody got hurt. However, you have to make a punishment to discourage other people from trying it because of the danger involved and the risk that someone might get hurt next time

It's one of those fine lines. They guy driving like that obviously puts a lot of people in danger. However, the old adage give an inch take a mile comes to mind.

Wow, what a reach between your thread title and the actual story. You are no better than a politician with trying to spin something to your viewpoint.

This guy raced around manhattan in a time trial, speeding and going through red lights, and posted it online for the world to see, and more importantly, try to emulate. That should go unpunished?

That went beyond speeding into wreckless driving. Seizure is a common penalty for that, isnt it? Phone Post

Well technically speaking and more importantly legally. Would the cops of had enough evidence to trace the infractions on him based off of what the red light cameras saw? Think about this for a minute. He basically made himself guilty by posting the video on-line. If the legal system uses this as their main evidence it's a catch 22. Don't remember what law but I'm pretty sure that the legal system can't use that as evidence unless they already have your vehicle information showing that it was your vehicle breaking the law.

LOL, no I am actually well aware of his fanaticism in that regard. I guess it is still surprising to see something so blatantly misrepresented.

Actually, law or not, they already do seize the cars of people arrested for DUI.  They don't even have to be convicted.  Just an arrest is enough for them to permanently steal your car.

I think a law should be passed that if a car is seized like that, if the owner is still making payments, whoever seizes the car should be forced to assume the payments.

It's still seizing a car for speeding.  If they do this, it will set a legal precedent and eventually any speeding stop could possibly result in the driver's car being stolen by the cops.

hopefully the next guy that is speeding around that you want to have a car t-bones you, stupid.

yes this is exactly the same as a guy doing 9 miles an hour over the speed limit on the way home from work.

you are trolling (in which case you got me, well done) or should smash yourself in the head with a hammer for being an absolute retard

"yes this is exactly the same as a guy doing 9 miles an hour over the speed limit on the way home from work."

It doesn't matter.  Don't you see?  This is just the first step.  The way shit is going in this country, eventually they will seize cars for pretty much anything.

Do you realize that if you are moving cross country and have your life savings with you in cash, they can seize the money and in order to get it back, you have to prove that it was not related to drugs, and often the legal expenses required to get it back will be higher than the amount of money they stole from you in the first place?

Civil asset forfeiture laws in this country are completely fucked.  They can seize your shit without having to prove that there was any criminal activity involved.  All they have to do is accuse you and suddenly the burden of proof shifts to you and you have to prove you are innocent in order to get your stuff back.   

It's fucked.
