As Ontario car accident lawyers will attest, in the last ten years street racing in Ontario has skyrocketed. Part of America's love affair with fast cars, and glamorously promoted in movies like "The Fast and the Furious," racing on public streets has drawn throngs of teen and young adults. Regrettably, a lot of these races have ended in catastrophic Ontario car accidents, which often seriously injure and kill bystanders.

In Ontario, thousands of teens and young adults meet in deserted streets after 11:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and race until dawn. Police estimate that on some weekend nights, the traffic generated by street racers on surface streets exceeds the traffic on the Interstate 15 Freeway.

"Ontario has long had a problem with illegal street racers," said John Bisnar. "These dangerous speed contests occur in the city's east industrial sector where the streets are long, wide and virally empty of traffic on weekend nights. They are an accident waiting to happen."

Ontario has recently stepped up its efforts to curtail this illegal activity. Last October, city police stopped an illegal street race on Airport Dive just west of Etiwanda Avenue. Over 100 officers from the San Bernardino DragNet Task Force cornered racers and bystanders. They arrested 187 young people, including 47 juveniles. All told, 73 cars were impounded for 30 days. If owners want their cars back, they'll have to fork over up to $400, plus the cost of the citation.

Dovetailing with Ontario's efforts, the State of California has decided to get serious and impose automatic six-month prison sentences and a $1,000 fine for convicted street racers. Violators could also spend several years in prison for manslaughter if they cause someone to be injured in the street race. There's also another penalty street racers really hate: getting caught such that the State will not only impound your car, but crush it for scrap.

Illegal street races have added to the painful Ontario car accident statistics recorded by the California Highway Patrol. In 2006, 21 people lost their lives in Ontario car accidents and 1,321 were injured. Motorcycle accidents killed one and injured 34. DUI collisions resulted in 11 fatalities and 118 injuries. Five pedestrians were killed and 50 were injured.

"Street racing draws teens and young adults to a very dangerous and illegal activity," noted John Bisnar. "According to a Liberty Mutual/ SADD (Students against Destructive Decisions) study conducted between 2001 and 2006, 804 people were killed in street racing incidents."

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“Bisnar chase rocked my case. I got a nice chunk of change an [sic] they were pretty cool to me.”

by Frank D.

reviewed at Yelp

“I could not recommend Bisnar & Chase highly enough! Now, I must be forthcoming and tell you that I am writing this review on behalf of my wonderful mother. You see, she's a mom, and therefor [sic] by nature is completely unable to do even the most simple of tasks on the internet. Like writing a a Yelp review. But we all love our moms don't we? Yes. We all love our moms (except Charles Manson), and would do anything to make sure they are protected and well taken care of. Upon referral from my mother's coworker, we contacted Bisnar & Chase. They had done a great job in this previous case and were located extremely close to both UCI and home, which made stopping by their office very convenient for my Mom. My Mom had been in an auto accident, nothing crazy but not a mere fender bender, and suffered what we thought to be some minor whiplash. Months later this was definitely not the case. Her client experience with the associates at Bisnar & Chase was so impressive that she raved to me about every time she heard anything from them. How thorough they were. How they listened better than I did (or something to that effect). How she liked Shannon and Mr. Bisnar and felt that they really had her best interests at heart. I honestly couldn't get her to shut up about them. But as a daughter that last part was all that I needed to hear to know that I we had found the right people and I could sleep easy at night knowing my Mom was in good hands. The Bisnar & Chase team really went above and beyond my family's expectations. And for that I am extremely grateful. If you live in the Newport Beach/Irvine/Costa Mesa/General Orange County area I would highly recommend Bisnar & Chase to both friends, and family.”
