Recently, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has noticed an uptick in street racing, including one night when racers took over the Dames Point Bridge.
Cracking down on drag racing and drifting is about more than arrests and impounding vehicles. Technology is playing a larger role, and meaningful change starts with drivers.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office alongside the Florida Highway Patrol on Thursday afternoon announced dozens of arrests and hundreds of citations sparked by a citywide crackdown on street racing.
The News4JAX I-TEAM went inside a local car club to find out why they risk death and arrest with regular meetups.
The owner of the Callahan Speedway contacted the News4JAX I-TEAM, saying he may soon have an option for drivers who have been speeding through the streets and parking lots of Jacksonville.
