    Social media helps CSP catch street racers - KRDO

    SAN LUIS VALLEY, Colo. - At least nine San Luis Valley residents are facing a combined 173 charges related to street racing.

    Over the span of 10 months, authorities were able to gather evidence including videos posted on social media by the suspects proving that they were street racing down local county roads. One video posted included suspects filming their speedometer while driving up to 165 mph.

    Those facing charges include:

    Karl Kloeppel, 32
    Shadoe Amaya, 27
    Matthew Jacques, 28
    Fabian Quezada, 21
    Corey Lydeen,19
    Don Marvin Sisneros, 21
    Derek Blackburn, 40
    Adam Jacques. 30
    The charges include Illegal Speed Contest, Illegal Speed Exhibition, Reckless Driving, and Reckless Endangerment.

    Around 557 people have lost their lives on Colorado Highways in 2016 as a result of automobile accidents, many caused by speeding, according to CSP.

    *disclaimer - I dont know how close these guys are to tracks or whatnot*

    While I am all for taking "street racing" off the roads, how about have some avenue to run our cars? I just found out last night the "big track" in Alberta went NHRA and rumor has it you need a bar under 11.5 now.... Calgary had its local track demolished years ago with the promise we were getting a new one and every new plan has been shot down since then.

    Its disappointing that people focus so much effort on punishing people rather then trying to fix the problem. I know you will never get 100% of the guys/girls to stop street racing, but honestly after hearing about the track that I have to drive 600km to go to just to safely race changing their rules that would require a bar in my car my immediate reaction was "guess ill be going to mexico on the weekend". Not proud of that, but its the truth.

    They're mostly from Alamosa. I've actually run with a few of these guys before. It's about an hour and forty-five minutes to the nearest track from there.

    Isn't that Shadoe guy the guy who fucked over a couple people not shipping items or shipping them fucked up items that were falsely advertised and then blocking/ignoring them on FB? Karma is a bitch!

    This will only make street racers smarter on how to evade, nothing more than a game.
