In all forms, street racing is illegal. There are many reasons for this. For one, individuals who street race regularly break the speed limit. Additionally, since street races occur on public roads, there is a significant risk that racers may injure those persons who are using the road for its intended purpose.
Individuals who suffer injuries from street racers may be able to seek financial compensation for their medical bills, vehicle repairs, and other appropriate damages.

The Dangers of Street Racing
There are many dangers involved with street racing. Racers often travel at speeds of up to or more than 100 mph. Most automobiles are not designed to operate at these speeds and may be difficult or impossible to control, even in the hands of a driver who is quite skilled. Not only is there a risk that a vehicle may be rendered uncontrollable by excessive speed, but when traveling so quickly, drivers may not have time to react to changes in roadway conditions, the presence of other traffic or pedestrians, or traffic signals.
Street racing is not only illegal, it is highly dangerous. If you or your loved ones have been injured by a street racer, contact the Milwaukee car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 to learn more about how a civil lawsuit may be able to help.
