Street racers flooding local roads and performing dangerous stunts is continuing to be a growing problem on the streets of Los Angeles.

Over the weekend, a street takeover in Florence early Sunday morning resulted in police being called to disperse crowds and break up the illegal spectacle.

On Saturday, two people died in a hit-and-run crash on the 91 Freeway while traveling in a pack of suspected street racers.

The ongoing issues are renewing calls by residents and lawmakers for more to be done.
