The Santa Ana City Council gave beginning endorsement Tuesday to an ordinance that would make it unlawful to watch street races around there.
Sideshows and street races have been an issue in Santa Ana and Orange County. The ordinance targets crowd individuals who are going to a street race purposely, inside 200 feet of the occasion.
For one Santa Ana lady who lost her better half when a street racer struck and killed him outside their home, she trusts the ordinance is passed when the city council votes on it one month from now.
“I would trust it would stop them,” said Patt Buchanan Harbrecht. “In the event that enough individuals are fined 1,000 dollars, better believe it, they will quit doing that.”
Authorities are trusting that taking action against the crowd of these occasions will stop consideration looking for street racers searching for groups to support them.
Infringement of the ordinance could result in a $1,000 fine and as long as a half year in prison. Nonetheless, the city should give a composed admonition first to any presumed spectator.
