Need for Speed
Innocent people are known to die from street racing as well. Cars involved in illegal street races are often issued equipment violation citation. Police are known to arrest offenders under the laws covering reckless operation and endangerment. The law says your car will be immediately confiscated and will face prison time up to three months and receive a one thousand dollar fine. Spectators are subject to lesser penalties as well.
To prevent illegal street racing some police stations are establishing an illegal street force team who will target the hot spots of the racing criminals. Along with that police are also providing alternative things for youth to do instead of putting their and other lives in danger. Along with this road safety education in schools.
For those who want to participate in street racing, an association for people who want to race so they can do it legally. The association is called NHRA and it helps street racing get off the major roads and become safe and effective. NHRA stands for National Hot Rod Association in which was founded in 1951 by a man of the name Wally Parks. The National Hot Rod Association put focus on the development of short distance acceleration. This association was initially a car club activity program but is now dedicated to safety. The initial goal for the future is to help overcome the problem of illegal street racing. The safety programs like this and others ones will help to keep everyone safe.
