Out of the blue I like to occasionally leave from a stop light fast. I won't even go over the speed limit but may floor it up to the PSL. I don't think there is anything illegal in doing that. Then I wondered, what if a car in one of the lanes next to me also did the same thing when the light turned green, and a LEO saw that? How would he determine if we were engaded in a speed contest? Curious to hear from people with law enforcement background.
I'm looking at buying a car that is faster than my company car which I think would look a bit faster pulling away from a light when flooring it (0-60 4.7). That kind of got me wondering because a few times I've had someone next to me also accelerate fast off the line, at the same time I did, out of the blue when neither one of us had any intention of "racing" each other.
I heard you don't need to be going over the PSL to be written up for engaging in a speed contest which is rumored to be an expensive ticket.
