Drag racing worries residents in So. Pinaungon, Balabag, Boracay

Residents of Sitio Pinaungon in Balabag Boracay say they fear for their safety.

Motorcycles are regularly racing down the street early in the morning and sometimes doing miles per hour trying to beat each other from one light to other.

Residents worry the drivers, the spectators or the people who live there will lose their life if something doesn't get done soon.

Neighbors say,  "the street goes from a quiet residential and industrial neighborhood to what looks like a scene from the movie 2 Fast, 2 furious when the sun goes down."

According to a report, “the teens who come there for drag racing apparently don't realize real life has real consequences.”

So with the help of council members, residents are urging the authorities to put actions to this issue.

They're passing around petitions hoping something gets done before someone is hurt or killed.
