Hellcats & The Lodge – Detroit Community-Engaged Research Program

Hellcats & The Lodge

As a native Detroiter, I know all about the love for Hellcats, formerly known as Dodge Chargers. Every summer, I hear the clubs of Dodge Chargers, Challengers and 300s racing down Detroit streets. For me, I love seeing the cars racing when its appropriate. For the incident that occurred on the Lodge freeway, it was out of line. Holding traffic for Instagram videos was inconsiderate, to say the least. In the age of technology, I find that Millenials love to make the next viral video and that definitely happened. Many Detroiters find that racing in any capacity on the streets or freeway is not safe and will, unfortunately, cause preventable tragedies. In order to appease both parties, I think that the Detroit Police Department should create a day of racing for Detroiters to safely enjoy their cars. By doing this, there should be a reduced risk of tragedy while having fun.

    Keep up the great work, Diamond! I appreciate your honesty discussing the conversations you are having and meetings you are attending during your time as an intern. I bet you are learning a great deal navigating the bureaucracy of the Detroit Public Schools. Looking forward to hearing more about your experience!
