9-Year-Old Killed By Street Racers

Not long ago, a man named Ricky Jackson was charged with racing on a highway that led to 9-year-old Olivia Mendez being killed. Jackson was racing his orange Dodge Challenger and going well over the speed limit when he ran into Mendez’s family vehicle, causing 9-year-old Olivia Mendez to be ejected. It was later reported by the police that Jackson had been racing two others on a public highway. Jackson was sentenced to 13 years in prison. This situation could have been avoided if those privileged enough to drive on Texas roads adhered to the laws governing them. 

Street racing is inherently dangerous and illegal. This is due to the fact that people are frequently injured or killed when street racing or by those who are street racing.
