Residents living in one north Laredo subdivision said they're fed up with the constant drag racing in their neighborhood.
A mother of two who didn't want to be identified said every Sunday cars could be seen and heard zooming past her house near Country Club Drive.
“They're pushing 60, 70, 80 miles an hour on Del Mar maybe even more. I fear for my children and for my life because these people are not law abiding,” said the north Laredo resident.
The Laredo police department said they're aware of drag racing taking place in her neighborhood.
“They sometimes say they send out patrol cars, but on Wednesday night when it was really bad I called and the racing lasted over an hour. I don't think anyone ever came to address the situation,” the mother of two said.
Street racing in that area isn't the only problem residents have to deal with. They said a car wash in the area usually gets filled with dozens of cars on Sundays and Wednesdays.
“And they're the loud cars,” the mother added. “The ones that make a lot of noise.”
Police told Pro 8 News they often patrol the area; however they will be looking into this problem.
“I hope it doesn't take a death for them to finally address this drag racing situation.”
Gene Belmares, the City representative in charge of the district where the problem is being reported said he will also be taking a look at the issue. He urges his constituents to call 311 to report the proble.
