Is Drag Racing Making A Comeback In The Hudson Valley?
It's like something out of the Fast And Furious movie series, who knew drag racing was an issue here in the Hudson Valley? For residents of the town of Nanuet, the situation is all too real.
ABC 7 reports people have been filming these races and posting them to YouTube. There's a concern that someone will try something stupid for their 15 minutes of internet fame and hurt or kill someone while making the attempt.
Thruway Plaza in Nanuet has been a place where gearheads gather and show off their wheels, but authorities have stepped up in recent years as complaints about noise became more and more common.
In the clip below, it shows two cars dangerously swerving in and out of traffic on Route I-287 after getting on the highway in Nanuet. Are there any other Hudson Valley roads where these kind of street races are common?
