Drifting done the right way at a car test centre ENGSUS00120130808160413

The police said they were doing nothing wrong. It was legal

How did they know? They didn’t make a checkpoint blockade to search for insurance, licenses, tyrewear, working lights, under the influence of alcohol or drugs and many more roadworthy tests - without holding up the general traffic at that time of night.

Don’t just stand there and watch. Make use of the time.
