KC Passes Street Racing Law For Spectators

City Council Says It Is Illegal To Watch Drag Racing


KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The City Council passed a bill Thursday saying it is illegal to watch a street race, KMBC's Micheal Mahoney reported.
Previously, people caught watching a drag race received a lecture.
Now, the spectators will be ticketed under a new "unlawful assembly" ordinance; they face a $500 fine or up to six months in jail.
City officials hope the new law will help end street racing.
"Because they're not going to do it unless there are spectators. It's no fun unless there's an audience -- that's where the thrill is now," Councilwoman Bonnie Sue Cooper said.
City Councilwoman Deb Hermann said officers know where drag racing usually occurs, but that police respond only to complaints.
"I don't know that they're trolling around looking for them at all," Hermann said.
In addition to the obvious safety hazards of street racing, police said fights and shootings can break out at the races. In recent years, at least six people have died in Kansas City because of street racing, Mahoney reported.

How can they prove what you were doing was spectating. What if you were there trying to tell the lawless street racers to leave and the law breaking assholes wouldn't?

LOL, i dont know about kc but down here in midmo, we have never wanted spectators...its usually just the people that are racing that go out to the spot and race and then come back. so this bill might hurt you all but wouldnt ahve any affect on us street racing here

Figures the retarded females would use backasswards logic in this law. I wonder how they explain drag racing with two people in the middle of nowhere. Trees cheer them on?

I dub this, the Fast and Furious law. You know they sat down and watched those movies and then said, yea, that's how we'll beat street racing.

All the people in here saying, " oh, prove what I was spectating". If you're so sure of your argument, feel free to represent me in court next month lol.


If I end up paying $500 for a ticket at my court date, I'm done with that shit. I'll hit up hpt a couPle times, then sell my shit and move on to off road 4x4 and gun building. Since I do have a giant piece of land I can play in some what close by.

This man has the right idea here, just stick to the ks side and leave MO alone for a little while. DA9, I wouldnt worry too much about this if I were you, the worst theyll do is give you a 500 dollar fine, but it doesnt sound like theyll try to charge you with any moving violations(like they legally could anyways).

Have you considered talking to the city prosecutor and explaining your position to them? It doesnt necessarily solve your dilemma, but if you can convince them that you werent "spectating" and that you met someone there to sell parts, or show a car that you were selling, you might get the charges knocked down to maybe a disorderly conduct ticket or just thrown out altogether..

So why is everyone crying over this, because it is against the law to watch people break the law? Big deal.
