  • Illegal street racing in San Antonio is a common occurrence and sometimes turns deadly. Just last year, two new laws went into effect in Texas aimed at pumping the brakes on street racing. These laws increase punishments for racers and others involved, but people plugged into the local car community say it’s not a complete solution. Hear what we found out.
  • It’s frustrating when you see it: trash dumped along a street or highway. We all know it’s illegal, but it still happens. So much so that the city now has a team dedicated to cleaning up illegal messes. Find out what penalties are in place and what illegal dumping can ultimately cost you, whether it’s your trash or not.
  • For years, the San Antonio Symphony has struggled to stay afloat. Now, musicians are on strike. The shaky financial history of the symphony is complicated, as well as the arguments currently being made on both sides of the negotiating table between symphony management and musicians. They’re talking about the orchestra’s size, pay, and public distrust. We break it down.
