Post Hazard light language.

this is what I learned from Club Si :

Drag racing - you lose, flash you lights. The winner ahead should aknowledge by flashing the hazards.

or

"That's enough racing for me" - hazard lights.

*****************

Last night, I think I learned a new one. I was on the slow lane, cruising with the traffic at about 70mph on our 4 lane Beltway. This tricked out Neon(very nice looking without decals) was flying by on the passing lane, slowed down until he was slightly ahead and moved to lane next to me - then he used his hazard lights and took off. I guess since it was dusk and his tint was illegally too dark, he knew I wouldn't see a thumbs up(or a finger).

Sorry - eating lunch. Had nothing much to add except this.

Hey Subie Gal, don't refuse a race because its in a straight line. Give it your best and if you lose you lose, no shame in that. Racing only when you know your going to win isn't much of a race in my books.....

I think Subie Gal is more against the fact that it would be on a normal road with traffic and pedestrians.
Something tells me she's not affraid of losing!!

i've beat mustangs, miatas, corvettes, honDUH's and BMW's on the track...! Legally... no, I don't always win... but I always come prepared to do so!!!

So that's what turning on the hazards means.

Well butter my bread on both sides honey child.

And here's simple old me thinking that the silly little children couldn't decide to turn left or right..

Well people there ain't that much in the way of grey matter at the bottom of the gene pool is there..

Please let's not get started on street racing again.. Although I suppose it does act as chlorine in that gene pool..

Unfortunately way too often to we see posts on this and other boards detailing the outcomes of such idiotic behaviour

OK

Normal service will now be resumed

Racing on public roads is without doubt one of the most stoopid things you can do. Especially if the idiot that wants to race has no respect for anything. We get people here doing the craziest things just so they can say they have overtaken an Impreza, overtake in places where its dangerous to do so, bends etc. Best thing to do is ignore them, or ask them to come to a track day, or an auto cross event as you seem to have more of them.

I had some idiot in a Fiat turbo try to chase me down through a town, i was doing 30, he came up behind me so fast he lost control and reversed into a steel fence at about 60, bearing in mind the limit was 40.

I am totally with Subie Gal on this one, it aint worth it.

Back on topic of Hazard meanings...

When I was in High School and College I was a volunteer firefighter in my hometown. Of course you used your own car to get to a call if you were paged out.

Back home in Nova Scotia, you get firefighter plates but you aren't allowed any auxiliary lighting on passenger cars, so if you saw a car coming hard with flashers on, it usually meant a FF going to a call. Especially in more rural areas.

Just a non-ricer meaning to the practice.

I speed safely along with the traffic. I don't race in traffic. These kids can flash me or hazard light me all they want. Read www.clubsi.com See how foolish the few of them are. There are guys there that tell them not to race in traffic but some kids just HAVE to post a "kill" in their "Si vs. ALL" forum. That forum right there instigates weak minded kids(and some adults) to race.

Admins - thank you for not making a forum like x-brand vs all.

Subie Gal, I think that you should proof read your work before pressing enter.....

"i know this great gravel/dirt loggin road!!!
let's see if they still wanna play???? "

So I guess your one of those, immature, thoughtless, unsafe people that race on roads other than specified race courses eh?????

You can take your foot out of your mouth now..

On a logging road, the only person you are likely to hurt is yourself surely ? Whereas if you race on the open road, you stand a chance of taking out other road users, or pedestrians.

Not quite sure what the problem is ?

Cool

Hucker..

Now let me think...

"gravel/dirt loggin road" and a tarmac road with markings.. other cars and people...

Similar but not quite the same...

ie.. you wouldnt find me crossing a gravel/dirt road with a hunda-boy speeding down it..

J.

ps - Ever thought of joining a circus... not many people can get both feet in there mouths.. haha

If I am not mistaken, private roads mean just that.

Hucker... I would watch your back if I were you. Beware, the black Legacy or two

Subie Gal, that reminds me, you still gotta take me out on that road of yours, my rally driving is getting a little rusty.

The only thing I'm getting at here is this. I'm not here to start some kind of war. I am simply stating that when someone says they only "race" on race courses, thats fine, but inviting some POS Honda up to some "loggin road" isn't my idea of sticking to your words...thats about it. But anyways, no big deal, I'll take my foot... hell....both feet out of my mouth. Subie Gal, if you ever get stuck on that "loggin road" I'll be glad to pull you out with my S10 WideTrack.

I rarely street race, if anything it would be up to the next light. My S10 WideTrack does pretty good for a truck 210/250 respectively. Its on the "loggin roads" where I have a big advantage......

hmmmm racing on the public road eh!!!!!

It aint big and it aint clever. In fact its bloody dumb!

Hucker, which one are ya, dumb or dumber?

From someone who drives one of the fastest road cars in the UK and runs top spec race and rally cars in top level competitions i can say you don't know $hit about race driving.

Racing on the public highway is for juveniles who dont see there 30's, they usualy drive underpowered boxes that wouldnt survive a 30MPH head on crash.

Put them in a real race or rally car and they $hit themselves, it takes skill and bravery to drive at the limit in a race or rally car, knowing you are risking a serious crash in the process of trying to win. The diference is that the car is designed with taking the inevitable crashes and protecting the driver/codriver. The crew thinks first about their safety when building the car. Would you survive an 80MPH head on crash with a tree, my crew have because we build the cars to take it.

Now put yourself on the highway in your rice mobile, you hit a tree at 80MPH, you are dead! you probably killed the poor sod who was pushing her pram down the road aswell.

Wake up and smell the roses before someone is puting them on your grave or the grave of someone you just killed!

could you live with that, knowing you could have avoided it, i know i couldnt! But then again i am an inteligent competitive person who knows when and where to push to the limit.

I hope you grow up so you may survive long enough to learn what a fool you sound!

What I've learned about hazard lights [thats if we are still talkin about em] here in the bay area on every fri and sat night there are street races [illegal of coarse] but a lot of cars come. like millions of em! mostly the usual integs and civics. Anywayz they use hazard lights to indicate "follow me to the race track" or something like that cuz theres so many cars and every one just follows the hazards. [NO i don't go 2 those races anymore... its no fun, cops everywhere, waste a lot of gas trying 2 look for a place 2 race, and its dangerous!] Anywayz i also learned Highbeams mean "I wanna race you!"
