Regardless of if you’re participating in or watching a street race, it’s something that can most certainly get you in a little bit of trouble or a lot, all depending on what your involvement happens to be. Don’t get us wrong, it’s too appealing for us not to watch but isn’t something that we would recommend that you try for yourself. These folks just so happened to find out the hard way that being involved in something like this could definitely manage to get you in trouble. During these races in south Los Angeles, it just so happened that when these people were wrapped up in the middle of a race, they would get the sting of the law.
Authorities blocked off multiple blocks and moved in on racers and spectators alike, arresting tons of people on the scene, impounding cars, and even tracking those who were involved with the use of a helicopter. I’m going to go ahead and guess that those involved were completely blindsided by the sting as it’s said that this is a weekly occurrence in the area. It would really be a shocker to see all of those red and blues pull in with all of their vehicles ready to roll.
Check out the video below that shows the scene of the chaos when the police rolled in and took down these unsuspecting racers who probably were stuck with their pants around their ankles, figuratively, of course. It looks like the people involved in this racing scene are going to be out of commission for a little while if not permanently. While street racing is one of those things that many partake in or enjoy spectating, you have to realize that when you head out there, you’re also signing up for something like this to happen to you! Keep it safe out there, boys and girls!
