Traffic approaching San Francisco’s Bay Bridge was backed up for miles Sunday afternoon when a group of renegade motorists in souped-up cars blocked off all the eastbound lanes and spun their tires and burned rubber “doughnuts” on the structure’s deck.

About 50 cars were involved in the sideshow, which occurred just outside the Bay Bridge’s Yerba Buena Tunnel, according to authorities and the San Francisco Chronicle.
