'on McAdams Highway and issued! a total of IK tickets to partici-l pants. Two more were apprehend-! ed and ticketed last Saturday] night. Charges ranged from faulty muffler equipment to reckless driving. In addition, a number of tickets have been issued to youthful racers on the Beltline highway in Godfrey, state police said. Explaining the popularity of drag racing on public highways, Sgt. Johnson explained that in the past there was a group of re- belious youths svho were known as the motorcycle set. He said they; Uised to race on the highways and | travel in groups to areas where jthey were unlikely to be caught iby police. He said when this' i group died out, they were sup| planted by the hot-rod racers (and finally by the drag racers. I The drag racers often use the family car to participate, but, more often, Johnson said, have their own cars that htey fix up and maintain. Sgt. Johnson explained that many of the teenagers who have hpen participating in th races on McAdams highway visit licensed, supervised itiau strips and, afU'r seeing others run decide to show their friends that they can do just as well as those at the drag strip. The> often seek uui a secluded section ol highway to "prove themselves and their ruis." Much of the activity on McAdums Highway, however, has beeni much more organized limn this. !He said he has checked with the'parents of the youths involved | Federal mission monitor Communications Comand that persons who police calls in such a could keep a watchful eye on their j sons to prevent possible recurrence of violations.
