YTN reported on a gang of people who were apprehended by the police for using illegally imported vehicles to engage in street racing and endangering the safety of the public.

YTN shared surveillance footage showing three expensive racing side by side in a tunnel. Suddenly, the middle car speeds up to butt into the left lane, colliding with the car that was racing in that lane and crashing headlong into the wall just ahead. The middle lane car spins out of control in midair from the impact of the collision, eventually landing belly up on the ground. 


Police reportedly apprehended a total of 73 gang members for racing over 300 km/h (~186 mph) and endangering the lives of the other citizens. Among the people apprehended, a good number of them were said to work specialized occupations such as doctors and accountants. 

Further, it was reported that the gang bribed an unidentified corporation to lift the speed limit constraints. 


A suspect in the street racing case testified, "It was an instance of adrenaline rush. I enjoy looking at cars, too. Because I really like them."

    It's not a big deal... just it's not that common in Korea I guess... but driving recklessly in general everyday, drunk driving... never using indicators and cutting people off, not wearing seatbelts... accidents and fatalities are high due to this behavior... not racing... a bigger problem but of course they never really look into this because its a national problem that nearly every driver is guilty of... I sold my motorcycle because I didn't wanna be on the road without doors and pillars surrounding me with the way the "regular" person drives... Doing anywhere between 140-200km on these roads is common for the "regular" person anyways...

    My bad, on review your statement didn't warrant that harsh of a response.
