(CBS) RIVERSIDE, Calif. Authorities cited more than 50 motorists and impounded 11 vehicles at a parking lot where street racers are known to hang out, police said Monday.

A four-hour crackdown began about 10 p.m. last night at a Target store at 3520 Tyler St., Sgt. Skip Showalter of the Riverside Police Department said.

The officers contained the lot, which had 150 cars in it, and inspected more than 80 vehicles, Showalter said.

More than 50 of the vehicles had "illegal emissions," which prompted officials to issue citations, Showalter said, and 11 vehicles were impounded for having identification numbers that had been tampered with or removed.

Officers cautioned those present about the dangers of illegal street racing, Showalter said.



I know some people who got their ride taken away. We should really be careful where we meetup guys!

I dont know why people continue to hold meets like this in these public places,its as if saying hey look at us . These types of meets make things hot for everybody no matter what car make it is. Because when you post up at places like this even if your noy doing anything wrong there always that one ahole that calls the po po,or they just so happen to pass by and then your phucked . Just my .02,PEACE

sucks that the cops would actually trap everyone in there instead of telling everyone to get outa the lot. I doubt they were doing any illegal street racing in the lot or anything, so i dont see a reason to search pples cars. im glad im in philly now that my swaps nearing completion.

HAHHAHHA, well since I don't believe cops are allowed to conduct their business on private property I'm sure Target called them in for taking up the lot.
I remember the FF3 meet at the Block and since we had permission to be there there was nothing a cop could do to all the "illegal emissions" there :)
They would have to wait for you to pull out onto a city owned street to issue anything.

GET PERMISSION to use a lot for a meet.
that's all I got to say.
