Apparently the police department in Cincinnati, Ohio seems to think that driving around in cars with over-sized rims is a safety hazard. You see they’ve recently been confiscating automobiles with large wheels citing city Municipal Code 503.29 which states, “No person shall drive or move or cause or knowingly permit to be driven or moved on any highway, any vehicle or combination of vehicles which is in such unsafe condition as to endanger any person.”
My question is, how the heck do the police know what’s safe or not on a vehicle? Hell, many vehicles today come stock with 19, 20 and even 22-inch rims from the factory. Watching the below video tells me one thing; that the bean counters and Cincinnati Police Department came up with a loophole that allows them to racially profile certain drivers while making a quick buck off them at the same time. The entire action is disturbing and disgusting and will hopefully be confronted with legal action from the drivers for whom their cars were taken.
