Back in high school I had a social studies teacher who used to refer to the burnout as the “mating call of the asshole”. In some ways I suppose he was right because let’s face it, the burnout is generally done to impress others. However there are those out there who frown upon such things. Law enforcement for instance is not a supporter of hooliganism and or a good smoke show. In fact they almost always have a problem with it. This young gentleman found this out the hard way when he decided to voice his mating call in a crowded parking lot filled with onlookers.
