Default street racing

Drivers who reached speeds of 165 mph on Interstate 485 were among those targeted by police this weekend in an ongoing crackdown against street racers in Mecklenburg County.

Michael King, 20, who faces one charge of prearranged speed competition and two charges of reckless driving, said he'* never raced. But he added that he bought his 1994 Mustang two years ago and souped it up to make the engine sound bigger.

Is there a law that allows them to take your car and sell it while you get left with nothing? Or do you get the proceeds from the auction?

Don't they have to impound them for so long?
