New Street Racing and Exhibition Driving Law Effective June 1, 2024

 In April 2024, Maryland lawmakers passed SB 442, a bill that provides additional penalties to those participating in street racing and exhibition driving. In recent years there has been a rise in the number of these groups occupying Maryland intersections, parking lots, and other areas frequented by drivers.  Increased penalties for those convicted will now include an increase of points assessed to drivers’ records, mandatory court appearances, doubling of fines, and the possibility of one year’s imprisonment.
