Ill probably get flammed with this one. I don't agree with anyone loosing their car over a street race, but it is the law and I know at face value people will call it a stupid law. But say people street racing, regardless of the cars or people driving them, loose control of their car and smash into a 35 year old single mom driving her 6 year old daughter home from school and the mother and or daughter gets killed? or a 8 year old boy runs infront of the street and you're driving to fast to stop intime and hit the child and he dies. The bottom line is someone died, someone lost a child or a child lost a parent or a wife lost a husband, now the law doesn't seem stupid especially for the ones that lost a loved one.

exactly. if everyone who street raced had half a brain this law wouldnt even exist. the problem is there are too many morons that race in areas that have traffic and cause horrific accidents. seems like everyone thinks lawslike this are unfair untill someone they care for gets killed.

to put it in perspective: not everyone who is driving drunk is going to drive like a fool and kill someone, but it happens more often than not, same reason that these laws are so strict.

right, yet you need to consider the fact that when a person gets a DUI, they don't lose their car now do they? In fact, first offenders don't even get their license suspended or do jail time. Often they get a slap on the wrist, some community service maybe.

I do agree with the fact that the whole ideal of street racing has been completely corrupted since it's hayday in the 60's/70's..now everyone in their mom's minvan and brothers corrola has watched the Flipping Fast&Queerious movies and thinks they are a fuccing racecar driver now. Back in the day, you built a car, you raced it, and that was that.

Now, the population has risen 10 fold, town's are now cities, cities are all but impossible to drive in, cops are required to have video cameras in their cruisers, traffic lights have cameras, airplanes catch you speeding, helicopters catch you speeding, and you just plain can NOT out run Motorola...

All of these things combined makes a premeditated street race practically impossible, and an impromptu race just as bad. I no longer attempt to race anyone in anything on the street, it's just not worth the risk.

ALL of that being said, I still completely disagree that the person should lose his car and still have to pay for it. Impound it, sure. Take away his license for 90 days, OK. Give him jail time if he kills someone, ya I get it. But their is no damned reason for them to take his car from him-AND rub salt in the wound by still making him pay the bank note....

Then again, I don't agree with undercover police officers catching speeder's at all. I think it's wrong. It used to be illegal for officer's to even sit and shoot radar without all of their lights on-not anymore...Bullchit, all of it..

So lets say one of these guys are stuck with the bank note on these cars and he decides to act like a rational person and says screw the cops and the banks note and said cop showes up on the guys door step and ask why he hasnt paid the bank.. I sure as hell wouldnt pay it, not one cent of it. credit is smashed but so is everything else because the guy cant get to work now.. They going to take him to jail for not paying the car note? KMA!! I dont race anymore but I did my fair share of it when I was young and if I was as stupid now as I was then I would run like hell to keep my car. Law enforcement is to empowered now and most feel they are above the law, witch is why I have NO love for any of them that abuse there position.

Could someone please explain to me the law? I can't seem to find it via google. I want to know to what extent the Police have the power and by which law gives them the right. Because imo i think there was more to it than just street racing (i maybe wrong... idk the entire story). I just want to know the details of the law. UP here this is no such law. Are we then saying that it depends on state by state>?

Thanks for whom ever could dish the correct details.

Whoa wait a second. I saw above that people don't get their license suspended of jail time for their first DUI? That is definitely determined state by state. The law around DUI convictions is certainly different between states. I know for a fact that when you get your first DUI in Connecticut, it is an automatic four month suspension of your license. For example, if you get convicted of a DUI in the state of Virginia, it is 4 months and a weekend in jail.

They can confiscate the vehicle if said vehicle is used in the commission of a crime.

I doubt they got reimbursed for their cars.

In charlotte theres gotta be some type of prior warning for them to take your car. Say X amounts of tickets, X Amount of POINTS on your license, X amounts of visits to court, maybe the judge said "If you get caught street racing one more time (on top of the past X times) then we WILL take your car.


Thats honestly how i think these cars got taken away. does anybody else agree with me?

I can't decide if it would be better or worse to have your car taken to be used as an undercover cop car, or in CA where they just take your car and smash it into a cube. At least you get to watch.

I really want to know what "street racing" is according to the police. I highly doubt you will ever get anything but a ticket or maybe like a 90 day license suspension at most from doing a 0-70 with another guy from a red light. Now if you're doing actual fast and furious type ****, then yeah, I wouldn't be offended by them crushing your car.

sure but texting while driving i think is just as dangerous and so it running a red light and picking up stuff that falls in your car while driving, eating while driving a standard, talking on the phone with out a hands free device. I am not flaming you I agree people should be penalized for being stupid but no matter what but life is a gamble just as soon as you walk out the door.

I would guess that it would depend on the cop, what state, and the speed limit on the street you were doing it on.

Here in Sacramento (might be the rest of CA too, but I do not know) 25 over the speed limit is reckless. This usually involves a person going to jail for the night, the car being impounded, and whatever the judge hands out when you go to court.

Some cities out here will take your car as well. Down in So Cal. they were crushing confiscated street racer's cars.

A DUI here will run you about 10k in fees, fines, court costs, etc... and 30 days (I think) with a suspended license. Not to mention your car ins. sky rockets.

I think I am in the minority here, but if you get caught street racing and your car is confiscated, boo hoo. You knew the risk, and you lost. Take your medicine like a man.
