In recent years, the police and courts have begun to crack down on illegal Racing and Drag Racing in the Philadelphia area. A racing or drag racing ticket is not a trivial traffic offense.

You would think that the person ticketed for drag racing would necessarily be physically in their car and racing another individual, as explained in the above definition. However, the police and courts have expanded this offense. The courts are now finding people guilty of racing and drag racing while driving alone at a high rate of speed with the intent to break one’s own personal speed record. If you were charged under conditions such as these then you are going to need a racing and drag racing lawyer.
The courts have further expanded the laws against racing and drag racing to include observation of a drag race as an offense. Under Pa. C.S.A. 75 Sec 3367(b) it says that “…no person shall in any manner participate in such a race.” The case of Commonwealth v. Holstein held that spectators were participating in the race and that spectators may also be charged with a drag racing or racing offense.
