OAKLAND, Calif. —
A video has surfaced on the Internet showing daring drivers taking their sideshow stunts to busy a Bay Area highway Saturday. The video shows three cars spinning in circles, doing donuts on I-880 in Oakland in the middle of the afternoon with little regard for others. Oakland traffic on the highway was stopped near the Coliseum and many drivers didn't know what to do.
KTVU showed lifelong Oakland resident Richard Shaw pictures of what drivers saw on the freeway Saturday. "I think it's just awful for them to hold everyone at bay on the freeway as they did," Shaw said. The freeway disruption attracted attention on nearby overpass according to a couple of postings on Facebook. "I would hope whoever is responsible that the highway patrol, or whomever, would do whatever they need to do to make sure that doesn't happen again," Shaw added. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the incident and said it doesn't like seeing videos like that posted online for anyone who is curious. More videos are posted everyday on YouTube depicting sideshow activities along the freeway. The CHP said in a phone interview that they have witnesses and tips to yesterday's incident which may lead them to the drivers. The CHP may have more information to provide to the public on Monday.
