After a toddler was killed by two teens street racing in Tampa, FL, the Florida legislature takes action to help police crack down on illegal street racing.
“Most people know that street racing is an illegal form of racing that occurs on a public road. In the past, most of these events were uncoordinated and races would go down with a few participants and cars on country roads or in industrial areas. However, this scene has drastically changed over the past few years with movies like the Fast and Furious, Street Outlaws, and video companies. What was once an underground event, had now been brought to the forefront gaining unwanted attention from lawmakers, police, as well as the media.” (Brian Havens, Dragzine)
