While I am not at all defending these guys racing 95mph in a 40mph zone, the article does say that the family was struck while making a left turn. It sounds like the street racers may have had the right of way, and the collision could have been avoided if the driver making the left turn had yielded (if he/she could even see the cars coming that fast, I don't know).
I'm just saying, everyone wants to blame 100% of it on the streetracers, and not the poor, "innocent" family. Sometimes facts get distorted, and that's how stupid laws get made and end up wasting lots of your tax money.
If you watched the National CTV report and not the Local CTV report you actually get the witness's accounts of the accident, and It was the street racers fault, because the wintess said they started to make their turn as the cars were a block away.

There are times when street racing can be safe, and then there are times when people with no common sense at all will try it when they shouldn't be thinking about it at all...
Really there is no such thing as safe street racing, You can't control the other drivers around you, and you can't tell whats down the road, and you don't win anything. So what's the point of doing it ?
