Havana, Cuba. April 1. (CubaNet) – A concerted raid by police and officers of the Technical Investigations Department (DTI) the night of March 27 resulted in the arrest of at least 20 drivers and the confiscation of several cars and motorcycles.

Edilberto Rodríguez said he witnessed the arrests of the racers along the Avenida de Rancho Boyeros, between Santa Catalina and Avenida Camagüey.

The late night races along deserted streets have been going on for years. Many here believe authorities have not curbed them because those involved are often the children of Communist party and government officials.
