Accidents in North Hollywood
Illegal street racing is a growing problem not only in North Hollywood but in most parts of Los Angeles, California, where many streets are transformed into raceways on certain nights. High-powered cars, mostly modified for the illegal sport, converge along the streets while spectators gather on the sidewalks to get a closer look of the action.
The activity is not only dangerous to the drivers but also to spectators who watch as the drivers show off their souped-up equipment and stunts. Early this year, a North Hollywood driver was charged for the death of two people. The driver lost control of his heavily modified Mustang which spun wildly before plowing into the crowd of watchers, hitting the two victims. The impact killed one person at the site of the accident, while the other died later in hospital.
Recognizing the serious risks of personal injury and damage to property caused by illegal street racing, the LAPD and local council have proposed legal measures to curb the dangerous activity.
