    I'm surprised it wasn't illegal already!

    Awesome... Street racing is getting very rampant, and livingin a city, and near where there are a lot of street racing, I can understand the concern.

    It's sickening to see that people have been getting off light on some of these offenses, hopefully this will help.

    I can only hope that there would be similar laws proposed here in the Us.

    I"m not against racing, I understand it's a sport to SOME people... but honestly I think there should be set places for wanna-be racers, but it is NOT the streets, or other places where bystanders can get hurt.

    I thought it already was illegal in the US. I know it is here locally. They have tracks and dragstrips for this kind of thing. Dumbass ricers thinking they're race car drivers. :rolleyes2 

    It's bad enough with all the really old folks on the road thinking they can do whatever they want. They're almost as bad as the kids.

    It's not already illegal? :confused: 

    I do find it a bit weird that I'm reading this after playing Need for Speed.

    About time.

    Good point. Racing tracks are probably a good place for that sport.

    I'm in Winnipeg Canada.

    Over here this is SO common.Mainly at the after 12am hours on Portage Ave.

    IIRC a pedestrian was ACTUALLY killed.

    Wow, I assumed it was already. I guess they just got them for speeding and dangerous driving. Ya, it pisses me off. Especially when we have a legal drag racing track just outside town.

    Throw me in with the group that thought it was already illegal as hell. I'm sure theres the thrill involved, but I think street racing is one of those thing that boils down to another form of "my cock is bigger than yours" for the jackasses involved.
    And what the hell is a "ricer"? Is that a typo for racer, or some slur I'm not familiar with?

    OK, yes those are dumb. I see way too many of those around here. It would be one thing if something was actually done to make the car faster, but just tacking on a huge ass spoiler, cherrybombs, and a bunch of decals that look like crappy tatoo flash really don't accomplish this. The most common offenders in my area are shitty little dodge neons, followed closely by civics and accords. I don't know if its funny or just stupid the thought that they might be trying to street race those POSs in the small towns around here.

    One of the funniest things I've ever seen, a Ford Taurus with a big ass spoiler on the back. People around here do the dumbest shit sometimes......

    In this area, I've seen a white Buick Century, with a single off center rally stripe that appeared to be wood tone. My other favorite was a Dodge Neon painted safety orange, with a roof scoop. They'd never opened up the front of the roof scoop.

    I once witnessed a Corsica (it was in pretty bad shape too) with a huge chrome metal spoiler crudely grafted onto the trunk (thing had to be well over a foot high). To this day I'd still rank it as one of the saddest things I've ever seen.
