Ticket for accelerating to fast?

If you're at a stop light, and when it turns green you accelerate really really fast up to the speed limit without going over the speed limit, can you get a ticket for it? Always wondered about this. Thanks

Yes. It happened to me when I was a teenager. I burned some major rubber, but never got above 45 mph. But I got a reckless driving ticket.

yes, that used to be called wasting a natural resource ( gasoline ), don't know if it's still called that.

I'm not sure what state you are from. As you can imagine the laws vary from state to state. This is a sample state law. The penalty is $1000 and 12 points, vehicle impound for 30 days. 2) (a) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (4) of this section, it is unlawful for a person to knowingly engage in a speed exhibition on a highway. (b) For purposes of this section, "speed exhibition" means the operation of a motor vehicle to present a display of speed or power. "Speed exhibition" includes, but is not limited to, squealing the tires of a motor vehicle while it is stationary or in motion, rapid acceleration, rapid swerving or weaving in and out of traffic, producing smoke from tire slippage, or leaving visible tire acceleration marks on the surface of the highway or ground.
