Thanks for that piece of advice

I never said I didn't understand, in fact I said this

and when you flip your car, have someone call 911... have EMS, Fire/rescue, and PD show up. (when a real emergency might be happening) only to have to pry you out of your vehicle, check you out medically and maybe transport you, write a report and organize a tow vehicle to get your car out of there.

Do it on private property that you own, I have no problem in him asking you to leave, infact I think he should have done more. There is no excuse "back in the day" A vehicle is a weapon when used incorrectly. I'm all for having fun, just not at others expenses and with the potential to waste public resources.
Now, I do see where you're coming from, but if I flip my Jeep on say a large parking lot that I personally own wouldn't it be true that potentially all the same emergency services get called? And do you really think that all that will be necessary if my Jeep somehow manages to flop doing like 15mph?

I'll be honest, at this point I'm just starting **** because I'm bored lol

I'm with you on it but you need to look at it from the other side. I don't know how old you are, I'm probably not much older but its something that I learned.

Imagine your the owner of the stadium. You worked long and hard to get it. Now imagine that some kid was doing doughnuts in your lot and he flips his vehicle or crashes and gets badly hurt. Now just say that the family is suing you for a whole lot of money. Now your on the verge of losing what you worked your whole life for. Its not really fair but people don't own up to their own responsibility anymore.

You guys are looking at this all wrong. The cop was supposed to meet someone there for some illegal activity and he didn't want you around to see.

It never was a big deal. Hope you thanked him.

Whether you want it or not, all that is going to show up when someone sees you in a public place with a flipped over vehicle. On your own property you can make the decision to call if you need help, regardless its still a waste of good resources no matter where you are. Fact is you have the choice on your own property while I can guarantee out in public its going to happen.
