Sideshow Car Stunts Stop Traffic on I-880 in Oakland

OAKLAND — The California Highway Patrol would like to have a few words with a group of drivers who briefly shut down interstate 880 in Oakland on Saturday.

The northbound lanes near the coliseum came to a standstill while several drivers smoked their tires and spun donuts in the middle of the highway.

At least a half-dozen cars were involved.

It lasted several minutes until someone shouted “five-oh” — to warn the cops were coming.

At that point, everyone sped away.

The CHP is investigating — and is probably taking a close look at the videos to see if they can read any of the license plates.
