What Is Illegal Street Racing?

The law defines racing as using one or more vehicles to try and outgain or outdistancing another vehicle to a given destination, or to test the vehicle's stamina while driving. Similarly, drag racing is when two or more vehicles try to outdistance each other while side by side over an agreed upon course. This is for the purpose of testing the vehicles' speed and acceleration.

Illegal drag racing is all too common in the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 153 people were killed in 122 crashes while racing between 2001 and 2010.

Enlist a Skilled Lawyer to Protect Your Interests

If you are convicted of racing on a highway, you could face a sentence of six months in jail and up to a $500 fine. The penalties are worse if you have a track record of highway racing or if you were driving 30 mph over the speed limit. Depending on the circumstances, you could face up to a year in jail, be fined up to $2,000 and be subject to a three-year license suspension.

A defense that could be available to you is that you were simply speeding, not racing. It can be very difficult for the prosecution to prove that you were racing. I have more than 25 years of legal experience that I can use to dismantle the accusations facing you and will do everything within my power to achieve a charge dismissal or reduction for you.
