City Council passes new drag racing ordinance

Posted: Updated:

The Flint City Council has passed new legislation that enables police to confiscate and impose large monetary penalties for vehicles used in drag racing.

The charge for obtaining an impounded vehicle would be the choice of paying a $900 fee or forfeiting the vehicle altogether.

Council members introduced the ordinance in response to a recent incident involving two teen spectators injured during a drag race on Flint's north side this past spring.

Drag racing has become a huge issue in the city as Flint Police recently arrested over a dozen people along Selby Street and I-475, an area suspected of hosting drag races.

Coming up tonight on TV5 News beginning at 5, we'll have more on the ordinance and what it means for drag racers.
