Safety driving becomes increasingly popular issue nowadays when reckless driving is practiced pervasively in almost every city in the United States. One of the most notorious cases of reckless driving in the United States is street racing, or usually referred to as drag racing. There are many reasons why illegal drag racing is considered highly dangerous. Firstly, this type of illegal racing is usually done in public streets. Therefore, this activity can harm drivers who happen to pass the streets in which the racing is done. Secondly, the streets that are used for the racing are not complemented with any protective structures. Therefore, when accident occurs, it will mostly be fatal. In addition, because of the absence of protective structures, spectators who happen to be present at the crash site are at a very precarious situation. Thirdly, the car that is used for the racing is not equipped with adequate protection. Therefore, when the car is overturned or wrecked, its driver can hardly survive. Fourthly, the participants of illegal street racing are not professional drivers or racers. Therefore, when they drive their car at speed exceeding 100 miles per hour, accident will be most likely to occur. The last reason is because such kind of street racing is illegal. If you join one, you are regarded as a lawbreaker who deserves severe penalty.
There are several facts assuring The Dangers of Drag Racing. Firstly, because this illegal and dangerous activity is done pervasively by teenagers, the teenage accident rate in the United States is four times that of adults. Secondly, teen mortality rate in the United States is rather high because of the pervasive practice of illegal street racing. And thirdly, criminal cases involving illegal street racing are also quite many in the United States.
Because illegal street racing is never considered favorable, you should avoid it if you really love yourself and your family.
