Reno City Council Approves Misdemeanor Ordinance Against Sideshows and Street Racing Spectators

NEVADA – In a recent council meeting held on Wednesday, the Reno City Council unanimously approved an ordinance that classifies spectating at sideshows and street races as a misdemeanor offense. This decision closely follows the recent adoption of a similar ordinance by Washoe County and the City of Sparks, which passed their respective measures in the past few months.

The new ordinance aims to combat the growing concerns surrounding sideshows and street racing activities in the region. By targeting spectators, authorities hope to discourage individuals from participating or supporting these illegal and dangerous events. The move is part of a broader effort to enhance public safety, reduce the occurrence of such activities, and protect the well-being of both participants and the community at large.

The Reno City Council’s decision aligns with the measures already in place in neighboring jurisdictions, creating a unified approach in addressing this issue. By implementing consistent regulations and penalties, law enforcement agencies across the region can work collaboratively to enforce the law and ensure compliance.

As a misdemeanor offense, spectating at sideshows and street races can now result in legal consequences, including fines and potential imprisonment. The strict enforcement of this ordinance sends a clear message that such activities will not be tolerated, and individuals found to be engaging in or supporting them will face legal repercussions.

Residents and visitors are encouraged to report any instances of sideshows or street racing to the local authorities, who will take appropriate action to address the situation. Public cooperation and vigilance play a vital role in maintaining community safety and upholding the regulations set forth by the newly enacted ordinance.
