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.

    These S.KOREANS will be featured in a movie titled "The FAST, The FURIOUS, The MORONIC !!!" ... Wonder how LARGE that the BRIBE MONEY was? ... It SEEMS like you could be PROSECUTED for say like RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT (of other's lives). And *all* those 73 (or more) are involved in that, IF they put up MONEY to make it happen, or to observe it somehow. BAD IDEA.

    "Further, it was reported that the gang bribed an unidentified corporation to lift the speed limit constraints." Does this mean that the cars' engines had components that restricted them from achieving high speeds, and then someone modified or took away the components to allow the cars to drive faster?

    Yes, that would be my GUESS on it. Some kind of 'top speed limiter control' was disabled ILLEGALLY.

    you don't need to bribe anyone. One of the car is BMW, it is sold with the speed limit at 140mph, the car was a M4, speed limit for M is 150mph. You can lift the speed limit by coding the car with a computer. It's quite common for people to do it in the US, most shops does it illegally and charges $20-80

    this could be the first AKP article i've seen where the cops actually did something useful instead of just rescuing kittens from the street.
