Detroit police working to end ‘reckless’ drag racing, drifting across city

Drifting and drag racing have become massive problems in the city of Detroit.

While attempting to stop a vehicle Monday, June 6, a Detroit police officer was dragged by that vehicle, which was said to be drifting in Corktown.

Now, there’s concern that even more people could get hurt if this issue goes unchecked. Detroit police believe social media is fueling the problem, as stunts are getting bolder and the stakes are getting higher as people look to monetize the likes and shares those videos get.

But the cost is so much greater than that.

Detroit may be the Motor City, but the drifting and drag racing that’s happening on city streets is illegal. And the issue hasn’t always been so severe.
