Any driver who engages in a drag race in the Tucson area is guilty of a criminal offense and can be held financially responsible for any damage they cause. According to Arizona legal code 28-708, “A person shall not drive a vehicle or participate in any manner in a race, speed competition or contest, drag race or acceleration contest, test of physical endurance or exhibition of speed or acceleration or for the purpose of making a speed record on a street or highway.” Violation of this statute results in a class 1 misdemeanor.
Drag racing is illegal for a simple reason: it is a highly dangerous activity in a public setting that substantially increases one’s chances of causing a serious accident with major bodily injuries. Zanes Law has helped clients recover damages for the following types of accidents caused by street-racing drivers:
Many street-racing accidents occur at intersections when the racer runs a red light or stop sign. Since the car in the street race is typically moving much faster than the car driven by the innocent person they hit, the victim’s car—and body—often sustains the brunt of the impact.
If you were hit from the side by a street racer who disregarded a traffic control device, Zanes Law will hold them accountable and help you collect money from them and their insurer.
Street racers sometimes strike other vehicles from the rear because they are going too fast or are too engaged in their race to slow down in time. A rear-end collision can lead to major spinal damage, broken bones, concussions, and a host of other serious injuries. Zanes Law will hold the person who caused those injuries accountable.
Some drag races involve one driver taking the “suicide lane,” meaning against oncoming traffic. As you can imagine, such behavior is asking for a head-on collision, which can lead to catastrophic injuries and even death. Our attorneys will fight to hold the driver liable for this irresponsible and reckless behavior.
The above list is far from comprehensive, as there are countless ways in which a street-racing driver can pose a danger to those around them. No matter how your accident occurred, if it involved a street racer, we can hold them accountable and make sure you recover fair compensation.
