Street Takeovers

  • Understand the danger that organized street racing and street takeovers have on many communities across Texas.
  • Appreciate the work done by the 87th Legislature, to create the offense of Reckless Driving Exhibition, Penal Code 42.03(f) to cover this type of dangerous and disruptive behavior. However, the new statute was not enumerated under Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity (PC 71), so it cannot be elevated into Chapter 59 as basis for seizing vehicles used in this conduct.
  • Add Reckless Driving Exhibition into the Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity statute will allow for a more aggressive enforcement with further significant consequences.
