LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A Louisville man was arrested Thursday night accused of doing doughnuts in his car at a park.

Louisville Metro Police said 22-year-old Tony Fey was at Riverview Park off of Greenwood Road doing doughnuts in the snow.

Police said the park has three signs reading "No Trespassing After Dark."

Fey was charged with criminal trespassing and reckless driving.

Used to do that here and there ... more than a few years ago.

These days, it’s harder to get away with it.

I learned a lot about controlling a car in the snow, lol.

Sounds like a dangerous way to learn. Not that there is a safe way.

I STILL do that - although I go down to the local school’s parking lot. With my younger kids in the back seat. Sadly we are having a rare snow this weekend and my son (6 months driving) is out of town.

I remember MY old man taking me to the parking lot on snowy days and setting up cones and making me run the course. The first drive through was at “normal” speeds just so I could see what would happen when you put on the brakes. (Or should I say - to see what WON’T happen!)

In a big empty parking lot - no danger at all really. But I sure can see the owners of the lot would not be pleased.

I lived in a town in the midwest, with the first hard snow, people would practice doughnuts in the parking lot at night, got you ready for winter driving, you learn what to do when your rear wheels want to pass your front. They got tons of the white stuff up there and they were sparing with salt & cinders as if they were gold...you ended up learning how to driveon ice REAL good.

Out there when folks would hear of a bad accident on the highway where cars went out of control due to ice and snow, the first thing locals would ask is "Were they from around here?" because only out-of-towners had trouble driving on the ice.

Interesting charge. The willful and want en disregard for the life or property of others.

I did the same with my kids when they were younger.
Better to practice in a safe environment than on the roads.

Donuts in the park, after dark.
I could write a poem. Anybody know ‘em?

You must have some other source than this article. What it shows above, is all it says.

Maybe someone familiar with the lot can describe it. If there was a chance that the donutting car could run into things like lamp posts, parked cars, or people, it’s understandable how the gendarmes might take umbrage.

Certainly beats doing donuts at highway speed on the interstate, towards on-coming traffic because he didn’t know how to handle an encounter with black ice.

My dad taught me how to drive using all sorts of unorthodox methods.

He also was a *huge* fan of The Dukes Of Hazzard.

For some reason, nobody ever calls shotgun if ~I’m~ driving.

[Darn...I really miss my Porsche...they’re a lot more “off road versatile” than you’d imagine]

I wish every new driver had the opportunity to learn before being put into weather situations that can catch them by suprise. Not jumping any creeks or catapulting over cars, but just basic road hazards would save alot of grief. Cops should give this one a pass...No harm, no foul.

If he was doing doughnuts on the grass in the park, then yeah there is damage and he should be charged accordingly. If just in a parking lot, no big deal. The article doesn’t say one way or another.

Was he in the parking lot? It doesnt say it. If he was on the grass and tearing gashes all over the lawn doing it... well then yeah appropriate.

I live in W.MD where there’s no such thing as a “straight, level road” and winters in these mountains are lethal *if* you don’t already know how *not* to die the first time you get behind the wheel of a car.

The mountains are killers even on warm, summer days so there’s never a good time to “relax and enjoy the drive”.

Not only can the curves take you out but whatever might be in the road on the other side of that blind curve could send you to your maker, as well.

Most of our traffic fatalities are “outlanders” passing through, rest their souls.

HS driver’s ed taught me the basic stuff but dad taught me to survive the “3Ws” “Weather, Wildlife, Whatever”.

[and crick jumpin’s fun...don’t knock it]...LOL

I agree about the pass.

-Every- time we leave the house in the winter ~or~ there’s been *any* kind of precip, hubby ‘checks the road’ on the deserted straightaway down from our lane.

Then we go on, knowing whether there’s black ice, oily rain slicks, overheated slippery macadam, ‘touchy brakes’ and everything in between.

[I just wish he’d warn me he’s about to “test” more often]....LOL

Hubby took all five kids to snow covered lots to teach them driving on snow and ice.

Shut up

Hold on

Of course thank God we survived some of the stuff we did ... :)

Change “in” to “on” and it’s current biker advice.

[it was first said to me nearly 19 years ago and I only stopped hearing it after I got my *own* ride]

I survived a really insane childhood..mostly involving bicycles or horses and tricks that weren’t really good ideas, such as “Roman riding” a 16 hand Quarter horse/Shetland pony “team” over a 2 foot jump.

Thank God I had the balance/reflexes/dumb luck of a cat, back then.

I still wake up amazed to even be here, every day.

;D

Hubby had to do a Dukes of Hazzard once on a back road in Oklahoma. We topped a little rise only to see the road had been washed away. It was either slam on the breaks and go head first into it or gun it. He gunned it. We looked back and saw the lack of one set of tire tracks where it’d fallen in more as we flew across. Many years later and he’s still apologizing. We lived. He made the right decision.

Ticketed over donuts in the park? Ridiculous. Just tell the guy to call it a night and be done with it.

Dad took my brother and I out to an empty snow covered parking lot to teach us how to drive in the snow. That is how we learned to handle the car. Best way to learn is to cut doughnuts and learn how to control the drifting.

Back in ‘82, I got suspended from a pizza delivery job for two weeks by doing donuts with a Chevy Chevette in the snow at an intersection in the country club neighborhood of town while returning from a delivery. My defense was that the cars were not equipped with snow tires or chains as the law dictates they should be. Oh well, I came back two weeks later and everything was fine. But instead of snow tires or chains, I was told to put three 50-lb sacks of flour in the hatchback.

“But instead of snow tires or chains, I was told to put three 50-lb sacks of flour in the hatchback.”

Which, during a sudden stop or collision, will fly out of the back and take your head off.

MD suggests concrete blocks.

A quicker, more merciful death, I reckon.

[bring back studded tires!]

Once, coming back from a bike swap meet in Harrisburg PA during a blizzard, we stopped at a Sheetz convenience store and had the parking lot plow guy load the bed of our Dodge D50 with wet snow.

Sucker drove like a tank the rest of the way home, no problems.

I’ve donutted on the road several times, each time ending up neatly on the shoulder pointed in the correct direction, a little shook up but unharmed.
