Asian Pacific Islander Community Outreach - Illegal Street Racing

There are many reasons that contribute to street racing by younger generations. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Fame
  • Thrill
  • Cool
  • Fun
  • Anger
  • Face
  • Media influence

On the other hand, most people do not realize the consequences of engaging in illegal street racing. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Death and injury (self and others)
  • Arrest (Misdemeanor/Felony)
  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Driver license suspension
  • Vehicle impound
  • A permanent arrest record

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) will not tolerate illegal street racing that occurs on local, county, or state highways. If you see any person that engages in such activity, contact us at:

1-800-TELL-CHP
