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.

    "Would I hire him again? Absolutely."
    I hired Steve for a child custody case in 2021. I see all the reviews that say he is "mean" or "rude" - I would say that he is just blunt and straightforward. He isn't going to get your hopes up just to preserve your feelings. Great guy. he is willing to answer your questions before you even hire him and you can bet that he's honest. Do I think that a 5k retainer was a lot for my case? Yes, but it IS Hawaii and I did hire him 2 months before my actual trial date after going pro-se for a while. Would I hire him again? Absolutely.

    Steve Cedillos is definitely worth it. He’s very straightforward and gets the job done! Helped me get a TRO I probably wouldn’t have been able to do alone. Navigating the justice system isn’t easy, but his help made it so much easier along with a great outcome!! Thankful and grateful I came across him on Google. He was very responsive anytime I needed to reach him. Highly recommended.
