Speed Exhibition and Speed ContestVC §23109 prohibits any person from engaging in any motor vehicle speed contest on a highway. A motor vehicle speed contest includes a motor vehicle race against another vehicle, a clock, or other timing device. An event in which the time to cover a prescribed route of more than 20 miles is measured, but where the vehicle does not exceed the speed limits, is not a speed contest. Also, a person is prohibited from aiding or abetting any motor vehicle speed contest on any highway. Further, no person shall engage in any motor vehicle exhibition of speed on a highway, and no person shall aid or abet in any motor vehicle exhibition of speed on any highway. Obstructing or placing any barricade or obstruction upon any highway in order to facilitate or aid any motor vehicle speed contest or exhibition upon a highway in any manner is likewise prohibited. Violation of VC §23109 is a misdemeanor and a person convicted of the same is subject to punishment by imprisonment in the county jail for not less than 24 hours nor more than 90 days or by a fine of not less than three hundred fifty-five dollars ($355) nor more than one thousand dollars ($1,000), or both that fine and imprisonment. The person's privilege to operate a motor vehicle shall be subject to suspension as provided in VC §13352. The person's privilege to operate a motor vehicle may be restricted for 90 days to six months to necessary travel to and from that person's place of employment and, if driving a motor vehicle is necessary to perform the duties of the person's employment, restricted to driving in that person's scope of employment. A prior conviction of VC §23109 within five years is punishable by imprisonment in the county jail for not less than four days nor more than six months and by a fine of not less than five hundred dollars ($500) nor more than one thousand dollars ($1,000).
