(Portland, OR) -- The Oregon Senate is approving a bill that cracks down on street racing. The Senate passed SB 615 yesterday. The bill would increase penalties for those convicted of street racing, raising the punishment for a first-time offense to one year behind bars, a six-thousand-250-dollar fine, or both. Subsequent convictions within a five-year period would be punishable by five years in prison, a 125-thousand-dollar fine, or both. The bill now moves on to the state House.
