Four arrested for street racing over weekend
Continuing their street racing crackdown, the Portland police arrested four drivers and towed the cars over the weekend.
Officers made 16 traffic stops involving street racing on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 7 and 8.
All of those arrested were young men, ages ranging from 18 to 22.
The two youngest, Zachary Welter, 18, and Cameron Toosovich, 19, were charged with reckless driving and reckless endangering.
Zachary Drazner, 20, was arrested on two counts of felony eluding, witness tampering and probation violation detainer in addition to reckless driving and endangering. Marcus Bolivar, 22, was charged with a violation of release agreement along with reckless driving.
These are the latest in a string of street racing-relateded arrests over recent months.
?The Portland Police Traffic Division is committed to providing enforcement and raising awareness regarding traffic safety for vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians. Each year, traffic officers respond to preventable collisions. These collisions can deeply impact those involved, their families and loved ones. Traffic officers' number one priority is to address behaviors of all road users that might lead to a collision, including speed, impairment, distraction and disobeying signals," the police said.
