The dangers of street racing

Few activities get the adrenaline pumping quite like pushing the pedal to the metal and not letting up. Humans have been addicted to pushing cars to their limit nearly since their inception -- there's a reason why NASCAR and other racing sports are so popular after all. But when the speed demons hit the streets, it can be dangerous, even fatal, for all those in the area.

Countless movies have depicted the world of street racing, yet very few show the dangers of it, except perhaps for dramatic effect. Yet the danger is real: Between 2001 and 2008, more than 1,000 people were killed in street racing accidents. Because there is no set definition for street racing and the cause of death is often attributed to reckless driving, these numbers could be much higher.

California has seen its fair share of street racing car accidents as well. While there are legal alternatives to getting this adrenaline rush, such as race tracks, experts say drivers find excuses not to use them, such as their open hours. But even when the tracks are open, drivers have been caught racing on the streets, leading to the notion that the danger only adds to the rush.

Racing on Orange County's busy streets is a deadly action that can lead to more fatalities than just the driver. If you have been the victim of a crash caused by this kind of reckless and negligent driver, you may have legal options to claim compensation. A personal injury attorney may be able to provide further information.
