The street racing community acts as if the lives of its members revolve around the cars. While such passion is usually a matter to be appreciated, these people manage to take everything down a route that's wrong on so many levels.
The dangers of street racingWhile the racers sometime occupy entire streets to do their thing, on other occasions they turn to the major highways and this is where the public safety issues become really serious. There are many occasions on which these guys race in full highway traffic, endangering other people's lives.
As if that wasn't enough, they generally take their cars to the limit when modifying them. In the race for strapping a pair of turbos, a blower or adding a nitrous shot, safety is anything but paramount.
The sheer panic that installs on the plenty of occasions when the police manages to stop the illegal racing is enough to generate accidents.
We understand the trill of modding your ride and battling out with the others at night, but, thankfully, America has been blessed with plenty of drag strips, so there's really no point in getting your kicks from this type of racing just because it's breaking the law.
