Meanwhile, in the other SAR ... Fearing for public safety Macau residents have called on police to crack down on illegal street racing. Many young people gather at Coloane between midnight and 2am on Friday and Saturday to watch the drag racing along Estrada de Hac Sa. Up to six cars will race along the public road, travelling in excess of 100 kilometres per hour. Overtaking on blind corners is common and there have been several accidents. Fed up with the noise and dangerous driving, Coloane residents have asked police to 'get serious' about the problem. Russell Chong said it was ridiculous that street racing was allowed to continue week after week. 'This is not an irregular thing, it happens every week and it is extremely disruptive and dangerous,' Mr Chong said. 'The noise for residents is unbearable and it is too dangerous to drive. Someone is eventually going to be seriously hurt or killed.' Chief Inspector Iong Si-pui of Macau police's traffic department said they were well aware of the problem. Inspector Iong said the people involved were mainly youths in their late teens and early 20s. He said it was difficult for police to eradicate the problem due to the size of the group. 'As soon as they become aware of our operation, they alert the others using phones and it is very hard for us to intercept them,' he said. 'We are making efforts to stop this but it is not easy.' Six new speed cameras have been installed in the area, but residents claim they have had little effect. 'The racers slow down to 60kmh for the camera and then accelerate as soon as they are past them,' Mr Chong said. Residents would like to see a patrol car in the area every Friday and Saturday night to deter the racers.
