Did you know that if you are arrested for street racing (AKA highway racing) the police can impound your car for up to 30 days? This is just one of the many penalties associated with this crime, which is a misdemeanor criminal offense in Florida. Other first-time offense penalties include an automatic one-year license suspension, fines, court costs, and the possibility of jail time (though most first-time offenders will not likely face a jail sentence.)
