'Sideshow' Spectators Also Can Be Cited

IN BRIEF / The State / OAKLAND

July 21, 2005|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Being a spectator at a "sideshow" is now illegal in the city.

The City Council gave its second and final approval Tuesday to an ordinance that allows authorities to cite spectators of the late-night car rallies known for high-speed stunts.

The law allows police to cite spectators with infractions for their first two offenses and a misdemeanor for their third.

The ordinance also allows authorities to confiscate cars of drivers who participate in sideshows.
