But Does He Live In A Glass House?

Alright, so that’s one way to deal with people driving Aventadors quickly through your neighborhood…

I’d suggest that just painting yellow accents onto an Aventador justifies the throwing of multiple rocks at the thing. (Cue the angry comments from our more literal-minded readers.)

Alex Nunez at R&T offers a fairly complete analysis of where the rock-throwing took place (a 25mph zone down the street from a school) and what laws might have been broken. All I can say is this: only in California.

    Old man is lucky they didn't beat the heck outta him. Classic case of a wannabe trying to regulate the actions of others and please don't respond to me about speed limits and laws blah blah blah. All I saw was an old man vandalize someone's property.

      Might want to check your glasses; the wannabes were in the Lambo.

    For this guy to have a pocket full of rocks, I'm guessing there is a history that precedes the video of this Lambo or others gunning down this stretch of road. If that is the case, I side with the rock-thrower regardless of how silly he looks prancing along. I'm dyspeptic crank who would love to mandate silent mufflers on Harleys, so take that for what it's worth. It's risky exacting your own form of justice, though. He's going to get shot or beaten to a pulp doing this.

    Here in Oregon you can just issue the citation yourself. With a video showing the drivers face and the vehicle at speed it would be as easy as spending two half days to get it's done. http://blog.oregonlive.com/commuting/2010/03/a_citizens_traffic_ticket_in_f.html The real heroes issue them to LEO's.

    My guess is there's a history of incidents before this one with these two. He was waiting there, it looks like this had been building for a while. But I don't condone throwing a rock though to deal with a noise issue, the guy is gambling with his life when he does something like that. It's also an over the top response that doesn't fit the crime, it would be like shooting your neighbor's dog because it barks too much. Even though I'm auto enthusiast and a motorcycle rider, one issue I'd like to see the "law" crack down on is "open pipes" on street cars. Motorcyclists are usually the worst offenders, and they hide behind that ridiculous line of "Open pipes save lives."
