Area teens intent on barking their tires or slinging gravel on Big Spring streets could certainly find themselves in hot water with law enforcement. However, such a childish transgression will no longer merit a trip behind bars.

The Big Spring City Council approved a new ordinance Tuesday night that will hopefully address a problem presented several years ago when the state legislature made such exhibitions of acceleration a Class B misdemeanor.
