Less that two weeks after a young other and her daughter lost their lives to drag races on Bayshore Blvd, Tampa PD stopped two more racers on Gandy Blvd. One of them had two young children in the car. Michael Lemire and Michael Segler were arrested and face misdemeanor charges of street racing. Lemire had his children in the car. Now law enforcement on both sides of the Bay are asking for help from local businesses to allow them onto their property and arrest racers before they get back out on the streets.

 

 

You’ll notice more “wrong way” warning signs going up around the Bay area soon. FDOT  received at $300,000 grant and will start putting those signs up in July. Wrong-way driver calls doubled in Hillsborough County last month compared to the same time last year.
