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.
I’m a poet and don’t know it.
But my feet show it.
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.
Re your #15... What the hell are parking lots and snow made for?
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.
I can almost feel the adrenaline rush, myself!
[when it doubt, GUN IT!]
[see? that’s why nobody ever calls shotgun if I’m driving...train track barriers coming down are simply a ‘dare ya!’ feature]...;D
“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.
In the parking lot or on the grass?
Not sure. Only know what article says.
Bultaco with 360 ring-ding weighing about 180 lb. works better
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.
So he was fornicating with donuts in a park? Is that illegal? Was he turned in by some donut ho?
