LA aims to curb street racing; family of woman killed by speeding Lamborghini says it's not enough

Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez, who introduced the measure last month, noted that street racing “generally occurs over a short section of a wide, straight local road with low levels of traffic volumes and easy access to freeways.”

To combat that, Tuesday’s motion will instruct the LAPD Street Racing Task Force and LA Department of Transportation to examine how traffic-calming measures like “speed humps, rumble strips, raised center medians, curb extensions, and traffic circles” can be used to stop street racing. 

The LAPD said last month that 437 people have been arrested so far this year in connection with illegal street takeovers and racing.
