Street racing: A dangerous problem in the Phoenix area

Most drivers in the Phoenix area understand the importance of driving safely. They follow the traffic laws and drive carefully on the roads. But some drivers do not follow the rules and do reckless things that can cause car accidents. The Phoenix police department has sent out a notice that they will be cracking down on street racers.

Street racing in Phoenix

Street racing has become a growing problem in the Phoenix area. Drivers are engaging in dangerous behavior, such as speeding and doing donuts or burnouts, placing other peoples’ lives at risk. There have been instances of people being seriously injured with these stunts, including falling out of their vehicles and getting hit by cars. Street racing has also caused auto accidents, including fatalities.

Phoenix police cracking down

Arizona law enforcement has created a task force to crack down on street racing, a problem which is starting to be seen all across the state. Since the start of the task force, over 2,100 tickets have been issued. Police are asking community groups to talk with kids and help them understand the dangers of street racing.

Defending against negligent drivers

If a person has been injured in an accident through no fault of their own, they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can help their clients understand what happened to cause the accident and who is at fault. They can also visit the accident scene and interview witnesses, review the police report, and help get the answers their client deserves. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.
