According to Community Relations Officer Melanie Bognuda, street racing, car meet, and car club activity such as street drifting (steering so that an automobile makes a controlled sideways skid) is not permitted nor sanctioned by the San Diego Police Department. The Car Clubs use social media to publicize a car meet 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.
Residents are urged to call the non-emergency number at 619-531-2000 when the groups begin to gather. When the street drifting activity is underway and presents a community danger, call 9-1-1. The faster and more consistently the community calls police as the gathering sets up, the less desirable the location will become to the Car Clubs.
