What are the laws like where you live? Street racing here is comparable to drunk driving when it comes to the law, and the penalties are draconian:
- An immediate seven-day licence suspension and seven-day vehicle impoundment at roadside when a police officer has reasonable and probable grounds to believe the offence was committed
- Fines from $2,000 to $10,000
- Courts can impose a driver licence suspension of up to 10 years for a second conviction within 10 years
- The accumulation of six demerit points, a maximum licence suspension of two years for a first conviction and a maximum six months in jail.
Yes; you read that right. They suspend your license and take your car right then and there for 7 days. No judge, no jury, no day in court. Roadside justice.
And a minimum 1 year ban on driving Canada wide upon conviction. No thanks.
If I even sense someone wants to race me at a light I just accelerate slowly and let them go.
Be safe and good luck.
