Speeding drivers call 911 to report the police towing their vehicles

Maybe not the most inspired thing to do in this situation

Two men called 911 to report the police is taking away their vehicles — after they’ve been caught street racing, CBC reports citing Ontario Provincial Police.  

It happened on Canada’s Highway 401, near Gananoque, where the two have been spotted by the police radars racing at 54 km/h (33.5 mph) over the posted speed limit.

In Canada’s traffic law books, this calls for automatic impoundment, a protocol that “upset” the two drivers, who started “arguing the authority to tow vehicles for stunt driving,” OPP stated.

Maybe they were debating the "racing" part and didn't want to be perceived as street racers but rather two individuals hurrying in the same direction, at the same time. But doing 50 km/h (31 mph) or more over the speed limit will render you carless for seven days if caught.

Of course, calling the police to complain about police doing its job may not be a proper solution in this case. But what else was there for the two drivers turned hitchhikers in a matter of minutes, right?
