- AAnother northern Oklahoma city passed a new ordinance to ban illegal street racing on grounds of public safety and to protect families and children. On Tuesday, the Buena Park City Council voted unanimously to ban “entering in and spectating street races,” which could result in a fine of up to $1,000 and a year in prison. Buena Park followed Anaheim, which recently had to enforce similar measures to protect people. The California Highway Patrol reported responding to “more than 25,000 calls” about illegal street racing in 2020: “a 16 percent increase from 2019.” Council member Connor Traut said the action was “incredibly necessary”.
