    Police seized 21 motorcycles and nine cars over the weekend for drag-racing in Parañaque and Quezon cities, the Traffic Management Group (TMG) on Monday said.

    Senior Superintendent Arnold Gunnacao, head of the TMG’s National Capital Region office, said the vehicles used in drag-racing on the Macapagal and Mindanao avenues from midnight of Saturday until before dawn of Sunday were impounded.

    Among the motorcycles impounded were Honda Wave, Yamaha MC, Honda XRM, Yinggang MC, Kawasaki MC, Euro MC, Suzuki MC, and Kymco MC. The seized car, on the hand, include a Mazda sedan, Honda Civic, a Toyota Corolla, and a Mitsubishi Lancer.

    Owners, on the other hand, were given a “slap on the wrist" as they were merely issued traffic tickets for various violations.

    Gunnacao said that aside from violating city ordinances against drag racing, the owners of the seized vehicles were also found to have suspected fake or outdated official registration documents and license plates.

    He noted that some of the vehicles did not even have plates at all, and that the motorcycle owners were not wearing helmets while driving.

    "The owners were advised to bring all pertinent documents regarding the ownership of the same. We just issued them tickets for these," Gunnacao said. - GMANews.TV

    That's an awfully light punishment for the crime. Those vehicles should not be released, and the violating parties should be charged. Isn't it a crime to be drag racing on the streets?

    Tama lang. It's time. Isama na rin sana yung mga bus na nag-uunahan papuntang Coastal mall para kumuha ng pasahero. Parang laging may karera ng bus dyan sa Macapagal.

    what is the city ordinance? dito kasi, drag racing is pretty much a series of citations as well (unless you kill someone of course)

    reckless driving....speeding...improper display of speed (this is my favorite because it sounds like such BS)....maybe improper lane changing....pinagpapatong-patong lang nila yung traffic violations.
