Illegal street racing is something that no one should ever attempt.

That's especially true considering that many drag strips now allow drivers to test their cars on the track in a controlled and safe manner, instead of in the urban jungle. That's good, since the lack of traffic and other impediments makes things that much safer.

On the video below, we see exactly what can wrong on public roads. In this case, a street race between a 1998 Camaro and a fourth-generation Mustang ended when another car pulled into traffic. All three cars were totaled, although there were no fatalities (those in the Mustang suffered serious injuries). Both drivers spent time in jail.

The YouTube description indicates that the Camaro owner spent 120 days in jail and had to put in 100 hours of community service, plus two years probation. The Mustang driver spent six months in prison.

There's no reason to street race. Take it to the drag strip.

These racers were lucky. Many others aren't. Street racing is just not worth it.

Warning: Video includes some NSFW language.

  2. That wasn't a race. Stop trying to milk the story as if it was ome kind of super drag race endangering the lives of innocent women and children, etc. They just got "unlucky" because they were t-boned by some idiot making an illegal turn into traffic.
    Tell it like it was please.

  5. Yes, they were racing but they were not at the time of the accident. They both clearly slowed down and some dumbass pulled out. Exactly, tell it like it was.
