Street racing, takeovers in SoCal pose dangers to trick-or-treaters this Halloween

Local news

Dressing up in costumes to go trick-or-treating is something many kids have been looking forward to this Halloween season. For parents, however, safety is a big concern as illegal street racing and street takeovers have become a growing problem in Southern California. 

As kids look to trick or treat this weekend, police will be on the lookout for any street racing or takeovers.

Officials worry that this Halloween weekend may be dangerous because the holiday falls on a day when side shows and street racing are common around Los Angeles.
