Street Racing – Danger for all

On Behalf of | Apr 13, 2018 | Firm News |


It should be common sense that street racing is dangerous. However, many people do not seem to be aware of the dangers of street racing, as they continue to do it. There are many issues that can come up as a result of this, as it is not only the drivers who can be injured when people decide to engage in this dangerous activity, but also pedestrians and bystanders. In the worst cases, people can even die due to these injuries, which makes this dangerous activity hardly worth the pleasure that it brings. There are documented cases where innocent people were killed by street racing in both Philadelphia and Monroe Township of New Jersey. In addition, people even engage in street racing in the winter. Though street racing is dangerous at any time of the year, it is particularly dangerous in the winter because of all of the additional weather issues. If there is ice on the street and the car is going at the fast speeds that are characteristic of street racing, the car will be more likely to spin out of control and hit someone not only on the street but possibly even on a sidewalk or in their own yard. The winter weather also presents the risk that you will not be able to see ahead of you as well, because of weather issues such as fog or snow. In addition, if you are street racing in a neighborhood, many neighborhoods have young children who play in the streets. If you are driving at the characteristically slow speeds that are allowed within these neighborhoods, you will generally be able to see the children, but street racing will make it so that you may not see them until it is too late.
