What are the statue of limitations in New York for traffic violations? one year I think; driver should have waited before revealing his broken record.

I still find the record of the transcontinental record quite interesting; New York to L.A in 31 Hours 6 min broken in 2006 by Alex Roy in a E39 M5. They waited a year or two before publishing anything pertaining to the record to run out the statute of limitations in every state.

Wink I don't get it ?

Why go 3 or 4 times the legal speed limit but stop for the red lights ??

Could have saved at least 2 to 3 minutes (or 10% of total time)

Ha Ha !!
