SSR - Stop Street Racing

We are proud supporters of quality, organizations & professional groups that are working hard to make the world a better & safer place for us all. And in this category, we would like to introduce SSR!

SSR stands for Stop Street Racing, which was formed in 2009 to unite responsible people to stand strong against dangerous street racing. Street racing claims the lives of too many people, and injuries even more, along with causing countless damage to property. By uniting the car clubs across the country to take a stand against street racing, we can keep racing off the streets and promote safe racing on drag strips and road courses.

A Word from the NHRA

Consider the following stats from NHRA, compiled from a variety of national and state transportation agencies, and it's easy to see the answer is to take it to the track.

  • In 2001, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that police listed street racing as a factor in 135 fatal crashes. The total was up from 72 street-racing-related fatalities reported in 2000.

  • According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, more than 800 citations for illegal street racing were issued in 2001.

  • In San Diego, where the street racing problem has been termed "epidemic," 16 deaths and 31 injuries were directly related to illegal street racing in 2001. The city's attorney's office prosecuted 147 illegal street racing cases in 1999, 161 in 2000, and 290 in 2001.

  • In Florida in 2001, 7,216 citations were issued for racing on the highway.

  • In 1999, the Florida Department of Highway and Safety for Motor Vehicles reported 28 accidents related to illegal street racing, with 2 fatalities and 27 injuries. In 2000, the agency reported 39 racing accidents, with 1 fatality and 55 injuries. In 2002, there were 48 racing accidents, 1 fatality, and 60 injuries.

  • According to the NHTSA, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for people between the ages of 16 and 20.

  • The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says 5,749 teens died in the United States from motor vehicle crash injuries in 1999.

  • Nationwide statistics show that 49 people are injured for every 1,000 who participate in illegal street racing.


As a result, city and state ordinances have been issued regarding illegal street racing. Though laws vary, here are some penalties faced by street racers:

  • You can be arrested and have your car impounded for 30 days or crushed.

  • If convicted of street racing or aiding and abetting a street race, you can be imprisoned for up to three months and fined up to $1,000. Spectators are subject to penalties as well.

  • Your driver's license can be revoked.

  • Your car insurance may be cancelled or the rates dramatically increased.

  • Cars in and around illegal street races are often issued equipment violations.
