    I have noticed that many people when posting freight photos on the bb or onto their websites they edit the serial number off the car. Though, it can be a little time consuming i think it is a good idea. a friend of mine got busted recently because of serial number tracking.

    what is your oppinion on this idea of posting flix without the tracking numbers? do ya'll think more people should do it? or do u think RR cops are too dumb to bother with tracking fr8's associated with a writers name?

    i guess i sorta did.

    but do u think they do it on the reg? the case with my friend is a little unique.... caught on vid and numbers tracked to location.

    i'm into editing numbers but are u guys gonna do it when posting flix?

    my reasons aren't so much about location, as much as building a case. if x gets charged and the cops are savy enough to try and build a case, they wont be able to track down any other cars by x just by tracing the numbers in my flix. a little far fetched, but I figure, for the 3 seconds it takes me to do it, why not. the less info on that car the better.

    my favorite is when someone takes time to edit the picture but you can still read the number on the Wheels.

    pretty scary though.

    yo genious, some of us a paranoid cuz we witnessed it first hand... painting freight trains is a felony charge if busted!

    serial numbers can help track cars to build a case against someone. you can give the cops as little credit as you want. i i'm gonna hide the numbers for safety purposes to protect my homies.
