Red Car Canyon: Off-Road Derby

At least 3 vehicles turned the Red Car Property into an off-road race track around 9:30 last night. Neighbors from Lake View Ave. and Corralitas Drive called the police. It was quite loud and dangerous as they were recklessly racing around the property at high speeds, spinning out, and getting stuck in the mud.

Neighbors on Riverside Place say this happens every time it rains.

I watched in disbelief as one truck attempted to drive up the steep slope on the Corralitas end. I could hear them from the top of Corralitas Drive.

Muddy tire tracks indicate they peeled out from Corralitas to Rosebud and headed south on Allesandro.
