Racing And The Street A Deadly Combination

Street Racing seems like the most affordable way to get the automotive adrenaline rush all us enthusiasts crave. What member of America’s youth doesn’t get off to hot girls, fast cars, and free rides? What seems like fun and games to some, however, is serious business to others. Not only is racing on public streets illegal in all 50 states, but it is also the most dangerous and selfish act the youth of today is getting involved in.

Taking off after WWII when the youth returning from war had extra money and a need for speed to go with their new mechanical know-how, street racing quickly evolved into one of America’s top killers in today’s society. Inspired and revived by the Fast and the Furious movies, street racing has contributed to a frightening level of fatal crashes. Fatal crashes related to street racing has increased by more than 85% every year for the past 6 years. From 1999 to 2000, San Diego, CA has seen an increase of 97% of fatal crashes caused by street racing. Still, sound like fun and games?

In the state of Florida, pedestrian injuries related to street racing has increased by 222% from 1999 to 2001. The leading cause of death for people ages 16-20 is automobile accidents. National averages show that for every 1000 street racers, there are 49 innocent bystanders who are injured or killed. So why do kids street race?
