Illegal street racing
By David Maillie
Not only is street racing illegal, it’s also extremely dangerous not just for the actual drivers but also for the public! Street racing is a very irresponsible activity to participate on. If you race on public streets it may seem at first like a great, cool idea, but it could land you in jail, kill you, or you may even run over an innocent bystander - this has happened in recent years.
If you killed somebody while street racing you would never forgive yourself, no matter what you did (read these driving safety articles). If I did that I don’t think I could ever get behind the wheel of a car ever again, it would be completely my fault. And not only that, but you could be charged with manslaughter or worse and spend many years in jail. So it’s surprising just how many people do actually street race. Street racing is similar to driving around at night with bad or cloudy headlights - very, very dangerous and risky.

The cars used in street racing are not your generic, standard cars, many of these are highly tuned beasts that are capable of going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under 4 seconds, which is phenomenal, you try finding this sort of performance in a standard road car. To use this speed properly you would need to use it on the track, using so much power on a public road is crazy.
Street racing often takes place at night, making it more dangerous both for the drivers and the public. No matter how often the police crack down on such races, they keep occurring. The popularity of recent movies involving illegal street racing doesn't help either.
Some street racing cars even have NOS or nitrous oxide systems installed, if you’ve seen some of the films about street racing then I’m sure you’re aware what this is capable of. The NOS can boost the power of the car, making it very difficult to control if you are not trained. It can also damage or even blow up one's engine.

It takes a lot of money to build a street racer, generally only quite rich people can afford to do it. Most of the people just prefer to watch the races because it involves less cost and also much less risk. These events are filled with many spectators, and it would be quite easy for spectators to get struck down by accident.
Today’s youth find street racing quite attractive, older people generally aren’t that interested. It costs a lot of money to customize the cars as we’ve already mentioned. Because street racing is illegal the participants have to look out for police, often a couple of people are nominated to keep watch for the cops. If the police catch you, they could well end up impounding your vehicle and you could be left with a substantial fine. If your vehicle is impounded then you will be without it for goodness knows how long. Some states like California have now gone with crushing cars involved with street racing - that is quite a penalty as you permanently lose your ride.

Because the cars are capable of such high speeds if the cops ever do catch anyone then they don’t see the point of giving up so easily, instead they would rather have a chase. Actually some individuals find the police chasing them to be more exhilarating than the actual race. Obviously a high speed police chase is extremely dangerous, the chances of killing somebody else or even yourself are greatly increased.
Nobody should speed, and breaking the speed limit this much is very irresponsible. It would scar you for life if you ever killed anyone. Just try to stick to the speed limits and be a careful and courteous driver.

If you want to race then I suggest you go to the track, this can be just as exciting as street racing but much less dangerous. Proper racing tracks are designed to handle such speed, and trained people are on hand to offer medical assistance as and when needed. If you’ve got enough money to build a street racer, then I’m sure you’ve got enough money to go down to your local racing track.

I saw something about illegal street racing on the TV. These kids are crazy. Look at Nick Hogan and the Graziano boy whom is now a vegetable due to Nick's careless racing. He had been ticketed and pulled over for street racing, speeding and more numerous times. Now, due to his carefree attitude, someone got seriously hurt. In my state they will actually confiscate the cars involved and put some serious points on the speeders license. This racing stuff just has to end.

I see what you mean. I had bad headlights on my Ford Taurus and I did have a hard time seeing at night while driving. I thought it was just me. I took your advice and purchased the New Lite headlight restoration kit and wow. The difference is absolutely amazing! My headlight lenses came out clear as new and it was quite easy to do. I had enogh left to do my wife's Honda Odyssey van and that came out great too. We can see 100% better at night and both vehicles look great. Thanks for the great advice!
