Should doing donuts/burnouts be punished with jail time?

Asked by: jake000
  • It is literally violence

    Burnouts with cars are a form of anti-social behaviour. It should not be impounded the person should actually learn a lesson and acknowledge they have been bad an therefore, they will know not to do it again next time. Teens especially will never learn a lesson since most of them tend to find that a good idea.

  • Destruction of Property

    Damage from burnouts are in the form of rubber marks left on the surface (concrete or asphalt).
    Assuming the donut/burnout is not done on private property that belongs to the person performing the burnout, either the public or the owner of the property will ultimately pay for it. It should be classified as destruction of property for this reason and the violator should be ticketed (and the rightful owner should have the option to sue for damages). Normal procedures will take place from there - tickets come with due dates, failure to pay/appear results in a bench warrant and at that point the violator will be held in jail until the court has a hearing on their case.

  • This is simply absurd.

    If they are doing it in a public place, sure, arrest them, that is rather anti-social, but if they are doing it away from people and are just having fun, then there is no harm in it and no reason for them to be arrested. It's like arresting a 6 year old for waving a toy gun around a saying "pow pow" on grounds that the child is threatening to shoot people and may become a terrorist.
