Police Caught Street Racing

Police Bust Huge Street Racing Event - Caught On Tape - Must Watch

Illegal street racing continues to advance in popularity, especially among young male adults. Nationally and internationally, illegal street racing is claiming hundreds of lives and injuring thousands annually.

Illegal street races are notorious for being poorly controlled and randomly organized. They also operate with a minimum of rules and safety measures. New communicative technology such as websites, cell phones and underground publications as well as a new generation with more free time, financial resources and a passion for speed has significantly heightened the risk for both participants and bystanders.

As recently as 2002 San Diego suffered the devastation of 16 deaths and 31 serious injuries as a direct result of illegal street racing activity. When these 2002 data were converted to a combined mortality/morbidity incidence rate, we were faced with the fact that for every 1,000 young people who choose to illegal street race in our community, 49 were either killed or seriously injured. A rate of that magnitude was properly defined as epidemic in nature.

The RaceLegal.com program was formed in 1998 by Dr. Stephen J. Bender, Professor Emeritus of Epidemiology/Biostatistics in San Diego State University's Graduate School of Public Health. Via a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, a comprehensive grass root community based coalition entitled "Closing the Loop" was initiated. This coalition involved city/county government, local law enforcement , Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR), Superior Court, City Attorney, District Attorney, county probation as well as the safer and sanctioned RaceLegal.com track alternative to illegal street racing.

^^ what is all this crap above?

anyway I hate street racing with a passion. so not safe.

I was hoping it was what the title said "police caught street racing" because I have personally seen 4 police cars all racing each other with their siren on... two older impalas and a newer one, and a charger (charger pwned btw :P) and yes they were racing because they stopped at the red light, shut their lights off and were grinning.

90 626 GT. "Greenie" | 02 Focus SE "Foci" | I has green wheels.
