The DVD starts out with a realistic and graphic simulation of a street race that ends deadly.
Elk Grove Police Chief Bob Simmons says the film is part of their zero-tolerance ordinance targeting street racers.
"We’re taking a very proactive approach to this type of behavior."
The Elk Grove City Council recently boosted penalties for street racing – drivers will have their cars impounded for 2-months and spectators could get a 6-month jail sentence.
Rick Soares is Elk Grove’s Mayor.
"Street racing is a problem in every city in America. We’ve had some high-profile ones recently."
The target audience for the film is teenagers. Ashley Stayton, a senior at Franklin High, saw it and says it made an impact.
"I thought it sent a very powerful message just showing kids the consequences of street racing."
The new DVD will be available to Elk Grove middle and high school students.
