Wayne County ordinance makes street racing a public nuisance
DETROIT – Street racing has been declared a public nuisance in southeastern Michigan’s Wayne County following a vote by county commissioners. The new ordinance allows police to impound vehicles and equipment used in street racing. County Executive Warren Evans said the new measure provides law enforcement with tools to help keep neighborhood streets safe. “For their own safety and for the safety of other motorists and pedestrians, would-be racers need to stay off Wayne County streets. “Street racing does endanger lives, has caused injuries, and fatalities and I have witnessed it first hand,” Evans said.
