Freeway Daredevils Tie Up Traffic on US 60 and Loop 202, No Arrests Made

Drivers in Oakland, California (pictured here) perform freeway stunts in January 2013. A similar event occurred on the Loop 202 in west Tempe on Sunday, DPS confirms.
Maybe you caught this show on Sunday, too.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety confirmed reports that dozens of vehicles intentionally blocked traffic while some performed stunts on parts of two freeways.

Just after 3 p.m. on Sunday, 911 calls started pouring in regarding at least 30 pickups driving together very slowly on U.S. 60 near Greenfield Road, says Officer Carrick Cook, a DPS spokesman.

No citations were issued at that time. The group is believed to have met up at Tempe Marketplace before heading out to the road again. About an hour later, DPS began taking calls about further trouble-making, apparently by the same folks.

The hooligans blocked other traffic from getting on westbound freeway ramps on the Loop 202 in west Tempe, while -- according to callers -- one more car may have spun "doughnuts" on the asphalt, Cook says.

A DPS officer who responded to the scene after the event didn't observe any violations. But he managed to stop one pickup that seemed to be leading others and cited him for a minor traffic violation. "The driver indicated they were driving in a year-end event," Cook says.

No video, official or otherwise, has surfaced of the show -- yet. You're welcome to share if you captured some of this, though we'll also warn you that DPS is looking for footage, too. Of the evidentiary kind.

The incident recalls a dumb and ultra-dangerous freeway stunt show in Oakland last January that's still drawing clicks on YouTube, as well as the unauthorized freeway closures by motorcyclists in New York City that preceded a attack on a driver and his family.

Cook says DPS worries these incidents could cause copycat violators.

Seems like a good way to create a whole lot of road rage all at once.

if i would have had my nieces and nephews in my ride and witnesses this, they would have been shot if it came that close to me. if you think you have the right to put other peoples lives in danger, then i should be allowed to take your life to stop you from doing that. plain and simple.

Now go to these pages, look up the people with 'TL' in their names and their known associates. You will find various pics and people talking about the event that took place on the 60 and 202. You will notice that most of these degenerates have something in common besides their affinity for trucks. You can DOX all these people with ease because they are morons. Pay me and Ill give you all their addresses, phone numbers and whatever else you want to know. All the info is public domain and would be gathered legally.

Its real simple, they dont own the road. If they want to block traffic which creates a dangerous situation, you have the right to draw your firearm and tell them to move their vehicles to end the danger that is being presented by the intentional breaking of laws. This is legal in Arizona, look it up. These assholes only behave this way because the majority of Americans are pussies who allow themselves to be victimized.

I love all the gun threats. Do you pussies really think those "idiots" are unarmed? Way to make gun owners look bad. Let them have some fun. Sounds like they tried to be safe about it by blocking traffic and doing it on a Sunday.

Jimmy the worst that happened was people had to take a break from rushing around like ants and watch the show. Few minutes of your life you get distracted and don't have to think about all the crap that stresses you out.

That it's done at all doesn't bother me so much....do it in some industrial park away from people, legal(?), no, but like minded morons can get their rocks off....no man, doing it on an active freeway is the epitome of arrogant DOUCHEbaggery on the highest BRO order.

You people take life to serious lol. Nobody was hurt and nothing bad happened. People have a story to tell about a bunch or reckless driving on the freeway. Everyone does dumb stuff when at some point on their life, these people just got media attention for it haha.

Who cares, idiots that drive like that dont go to the range, attend combat classes or have any real time experience with "TCB". These fake outlaws will get their cards pulled and there isnt a damned thing they can do about it. One Mozambique drill and these fools would tuck tail and run for the border.

Yep.  Look at the morons in NYC that did this.  The family got upset that someone ran over their son and turned him into a parapalegic.  Well, if your f*cktard of a son wasnt involved with a biker gang who attacked a family, he probably would not be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

And they would have shot back and killed your ass.  And since you pulled the gun first, they would be justified and you would not.  If you died... good riddance.  If you lived... you would end up doing time in jail.  Good riddance.

People who drive like idiots, block traffic and engage in dangerous behaviors stress me out. Thos people were criminal scum and deserve all the bad that comes their way. Hopefully they will pull this crap in front of the wrong person and get one of their crew killed. Then we can here their family cry on tv about how much of good person their criminal POS idiot child/brother/husband was.

@RyanWrong, criminals who are blocking traffic and engaging in behaviors that put other motorists at risk have no legal recourse to fire in self defense. These idiots deserve whatever bad comes their way.
