Which cities do you think have the most street racing taking place in them? To me I think its the western cities, most notably Los Angeles. I live in Colorado Springs and I hear cars street racing all the time, I live by alot of major streets so at night is when it happens alot.

Pick any major city in Texas and you'll see street racing. I know in Waco we had the Valley which was wild on Friday and Saturday nlghts full of people racing. They usually all crowd in the parking lot of McDonald's, Wendy's, and BK.

No city has as much as there used to be. I know here in Georgia you used to could find massive street races all over the place back in the days but law enforcement takes them much much more serious now than they did then.

I can't say about other places, but you're right about the Bay. I remember seeing people street race pretty regularly on Anza street, in SF's richmond district, back when I was a kid. One more recent time seeing a street race that's stuck in my mind was around 3 p.m., middle of the day on Geary and Divisadero. A riced up honda and two bikes were racing each other up Geary, probably doing about 60, weaving though traffic. Pretty crazy. I also remember reading in the news last year about two taxis that crashed in the Richmond district while racing each other. We have some crazy drivers up here.

In SJ, we had some roads on the outskirts fitted with speed bumps to deter street racers. I don't know where they go now, but I doubt they simply gave up their need for speed.
