“The Gwinnett Police Department recognizes the hazard these illegal street racing activities pose to the motoring and pedestrian public,” the department said in a statement. “These dangerous and reckless activities will not be tolerated. We are committed to keeping the streets of Gwinnett County safe for all residents and visitors.”
Metro Atlanta police have recently announced multiple arrests in street racing and “takeover” incidents.
Late last month, at least five people were arrested in separate incidents in which officers responded to intersection takeovers as drivers laid drag in Gwinnett and Roswell.
In the Roswell incident, a patrol car was attacked and damaged by the crowd gathered to watch the event.
