Why shouldn't it be legal to race on the streets. It doesn't mean that you have to race around other innocent people. It just means that you can race on a public street without having to pay the fee at the track. If the road was industrial and free of dips and bumps and was blocked off in a safe manner then innocent people would be out of harms way. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with that.
You just have to close down the roads and it will help so you don't have to pay for a big track to race instead you can race with your friends and have fun. It will be a very good bonding experience and if they wreck a car they pay for it if one person dies the law goes back to normal
Yo u have to pay alot of money to go on a track where your street raceing you can ace for free but if its for money you can win big andbuy more car parts every guy there is loves raceing so why pay a huge price for a track when you can have fun for free sure there are deaths but there are deaths at the racetrack to so whats the differct LEGALIZE STREET RACING!
I think it should because face it, there is going to be street racing whether people like it or not. No one is gonna change that. It should be the choice we ourselves make, not what other people think. If your gonna legalize, do it. Like people have said, have the police close off the roads during the race, have the paramedics on standby, and have the cars be inspected before the race to ensure the car won't kill the driver. If your not gonna legalize it, oh well it's still gonna happen.
Street racing is the most effective way of racing. Here in the Houston area there is only one track (that i know of) that you DRIVE ALL THE ACROSS TOWN, PAY TO RACE, SIT IN 1, 1 AND HALF HOURS BETWEEN PASSES, AND DRIVE ALL THE WAY HOME. What should be allowed is have a set time where it is legal to race (ex; 12:30AM to 4:30AM), in a justifiable environment (ex; Must be on secluded and/or empty roads away from community/neighborhood areas) and the cars are registered and street legal. Its so simple to fix this issue.
If street racing was legal on high ways at certain times such as from 12:00am to 4:50am it would limit the amount of racing on main roads and cominities in the day resulting in less deaths and arrests. If it were legal, police would be able to focuse more on arresting real criminals and not aressting people who just like cars. It can be done safe and even inprove the economy. THE REASON PEOPLE STREET RACE IN THE FIRST PLACE IS BECAUSE driving hours to the closest track is time consuming and racing on the track is really expensive and you dont allways get to drive how you want on the track. Street racing can be done safe by closing down roads. Besides, when street racing is illegal people are still doing it. Almost all street racers are non violent people who just like the sound and feel of cars. There not criminals and should not have there lives destroyed. We are wasting tax money on crushing cars and getting cops to chases street racers when at the same moment the chasing a car enthusiest they could be chasing robbers murderers and violent people. The more street racer who get arrested the more innocent people we are putting in jail who could make a difference on this planet! Street racing should be legal by shutting down roads and allowing more freedom to race safely.
Street racing here in Washington State is the best car scene ive ever seen people run slicks on the road. I think personally it should be legalized. People just hate that they cant be in the scenes cause they probably had bad experiences. Other than that come join in WASHINGTON State every friday night 11:30.
Listen as an experienced racer my opinion is that whether you make it legal or not, it will continue to happen. There's nothing you can do about that, but do I think it should be legal yes. There will always be people out there, that are going to street race, why not help them by closing off the roads, get police involved in insuring that roads are closed and racers are safe by having an ambulance on stand by. If you make these rules then there's no difference, the drivers are just safer and less cautious. Now even if you don't legalize it there will still be street races, drift events in the middle of the night, so nothing will change. So I say legalize!!!
All these fools saying its dangerous it is like IKEA furniture most of it that breaks is caused by someone assembling it wrong breaking represents death but if you assemble it correctly then it is actually pretty good or in this case safe, watch initial d AKA the best street racing anime.
Street racing should be legalized, cause the people driving put there lives at risk cause they love it, i have no street racing skills cause of being 12 years old and only having a basher Honda integra but it runs in my family, i have a need for speed cause bashing a car helps your motor skills as well as street racing
Deaths. Deaths. MORE Deaths, a small consequence of what you racers might call having a bit of fun. It is appalling thought of watching bikes hurtle past at incredible speeds only to spin off in a ball of fire and fear. On lookers are also open to danger if the racers lose control, as over 100mph
Dangerous would be the first, and most prevalent reason to make street racing illegal, but after that obvious fact, is the secondary supporting reason of intelligent common sense. Our city streets are not designed to be drag strips. To use them as such would defy all logical intelligence. I actually am hard pressed to find any reasoning behind how, or why this topic would even be considered for debate. Street racing is senseless, there are places for such things in many areas, and beyond that it is just plain stupid. The thought of it being considered legal just goes against all-logical, and sensible thought.
I do not think that street racing should be legalized. I think that any sort of racing should be done in private areas under supervision. Street racing would be incredibly dangerous for all the people on the road. This would surely lead to a lot of unnecessary car accidents and an increase in fatalities.
Street racing should not be legalized. Not only is it dangerous for those who participate in it, but also innocent bystanders and those who share the roads. If people want to race their cars, they should do so not on public streets, but instead in areas where the only ones who could get hurt are those who are foolish enough to participate. Public street racing endangers families and children who are passengers on the same roads as those who are racing. It is not fair to endanger their lives for the simple pleasure that racers get from their adrenaline rush.
I believe that street racing should not be legalized. Street racing is so dangerous and many people can get seriously hurt or killed. Legalizing it would only increase the number of people who get injured--not only the participants but innocent bystanders. Street racing is just an ego trip for drivers and proves nothing., Legalizing it would be a huge mistake.
Driving is dangerous enough with people falling a sleep at the wheel, texting, and just not paying attention. We do not need to add to the danger by allowing people to race down the streets swerving in and out of traffic and having the possibility to crash into people. If street racers want the street experience, build a street track and provide extra consideration to safety. Racers have tracks they do not belong on highways.

Family of 6, mother, father, and four children. Father and two older children went shopping. On their way home two morons are Street Racing and neither wanting to be the one to "loose" both ran a stop light and one of them hit the father and two sons killing them all. Leaving a mother to grieve for not only her husband but TWO children as well..While Trying to raise two more children all alone!
I knew this family personally, they were loved by everyone that knew them.
The scumbags that killed them? Both lived, busted up some but nothing they didn't heal up from.
Punishment? Sure, ONE served a whole year in jail. The other idiot got three months. Both paid token fines, as they came from big land owning families the could easily afford the best, most crooked lawyers that money could buy. The judge retired shortly after the trial. Why not? WE pay for them to do so, and SOMEONE gave him a super deal on a Hugh boat And lake cottage to store it at.
The widow lost her house, ended up moving in with her family until the boys were grown.
If the two morons racing had died no one would have cared except for their families. But they didn't. Selfish and Stupid, best description I can give for Street racers.

Street racing is very unsafe for the cars participating in the race are going at a high speed and could lose control of there vehicle and spin out, killing many people(spectating or driving in another car). The desert could be one place for racing but the streets are not an option
