For some reason, a lot of you were super suspicious when I asked you about that time about the time you got away with it last week. I don’t know why! I’m not a cop. I thought we’d established that much by now. But here are your true stories of the times you skated repercussions for something crazy.

[Welcome back to Countersteer, where we ask you to tell us your greatest stories of success and failure, then we pull the very best of them to share with the rest of the world.]


Looks, cars are our tickets to freedom. And we won’t know exactly what that freedom is unless we test the limits every now and then. As long as nobody gets hurt, it’s to be expected, really.

I would like to be clear that endangering your safety and that of other people is never okay, so, please, if you plan to speed or do something reckless, do it on a track.

Thankfully, most of you acknowledged that these things happened when you were young and dumb. We can all enjoy these stories, but they’re also lessons to all of us.


I cannot stress this enough: YOU ARE NOT IN THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS. NOBODY IS. IT’S A MOVIE. Good story, though.

Do It, And Do It Quick (DonVanSin)

More often than not, obeying the cop helps. Especially in this case.

For The Escort G FREAKING T (MCOBigBen)

Can anybody say sticky pedal?

Animal Theft (Chairman Kaga)

I mean, who hasn’t tried to steal somebody else’s awful lawn ornament, amirite?

Dude, You Coulda Died (Digi)

Sometimes when you bite the environment, the environment bites back.

Finding The Perfect Car (Mirror Universe Stig)

It’s all in the ownership.

Dumb Kids Doing Dumb Shit (zwill23)

My goodness, it’s a relief nobody died!

Sometimes It Pays To Drive A Generic Car (War)

Wanted: a silver Toyota SUV. Seen one lately?

Cops Are People, Too (Snuze: The New Slobalt)

Not saying these speeds were anywhere near okay, but Snuze was lucky the cop was a bike guy, too.

Small Town, Custom Car (Zeek Is A Geek)

Good thing the cop didn’t get a good view of the car.



Come Armed With Knowledge (dustynnguyendood)

Sometimes all it takes is eight bucks’ worth of spark plugs.

One Of Those High School Legends (KyleN20)

The story that eventually becomes a tall tale.

Verbal Warning (Southwest Nomad)

Those are seriously the best.

Criminal Act (BTDUBS)

And then there’s this animal. God help us all.
