Discover how two West Coast jurisdictions are working to rid their streets of two threats to public safety: unlicensed drivers and street racers. The Fontana, California, Police Department uses checkpoints, courthouse sting operations, aggressive impoundment of offenders’ vehicles, and public awareness events to get scofflaws off the road. Meanwhile, in Kent, Washington, undercover police officers find out where the races are and then call in uniformed officers to catch violators before they leave the scene.Photo ©2001 Brand X Pictures
