Call police ASAP when you observe Illegal Car Club activity, Street and/or Drag Racing


Residents who live in the area continue to report illegal drag-racing and Car Club activity. According to Community Relations Officer Melanie Bognuda, street racing is not permitted nor sanctioned by the San Diego Police Department. The Car Clubs use social media to publicize a meet up location. Very often, the sites are private and they wait until the very last minute to publish the location which leaves the police department without notice of the event.

Officer Bognuda says the police department needs the community to call the non-emergency line at 619-531-2000 to report when these groups are seen or heard gathering. In an emergency, call 9-1-1. This will create a radio call for service and allow officers to respond to shut down the illegal activity. The faster and more consistently we can call police as the gathering sets up, the less desirable a location will become to the Car Clubs. Officer Bognuda asks all to share this information with your neighbors so we can all work together.

Editor’s note: If you didn’t get a chance to call the police at the time of the incident or you have photo/video evidence, you may email Officer Bodnuda with information at
