We've had a little a change of heart recently at 4-Wheel & Off-Road. We now believe it might not be conducive to our pastime to regurgitate your worst legal violations. So instead, we are asking you to send us your readers' rides with a new addition of your "funniest wheeling incident." We are not saying that your funniest wheeling incident wasn't a moving violation, but we figured we'd open up the section to more light-hearted (non-illegal) recollections. Thanks, and remember that we accept readers' rides through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Digital images in JPEG format (saved at maximum quality) should be at least 4x6 inches at 300 pixels-per-inch resolution.
