Tucson Considering Street Racing Ordinance

Tucson Considering Street Racing Ordinance

The city of Tucson is considering a new ordinance that would establish stricter consequences for street racing.

During Wednesday’s city council study session, Tucson city council and the Mayor Jonathan Rothschild discussed a possible street racing ordinance that would result in an automatic impound for a racing violation.

Proponents of the new ordinance point out that the current policy of citations and cite/release arrests have not proven effective in curbing illegal street racing, as with current law, those arrested for street racing can keep their vehicles unless they have a suspended license.

Tucson city code currently has an automatic impound in place for off-road violations within a quarter mle of a structure. The city of Tucson has identified areas known for street racing, including Kolb and Science Park, Littletown/Centennial, Sonoita Hwy/Sahuarita, and Prince/I-10.
