    Waikato Police have impounded a number of vehicles for street racing and burnouts

    Waikato Police have impounded a number of vehicles for street racing and burnouts


    Ten search warrants were carried out this morning as part of Operation Shadow -- which began in 2019 to target illegal street racing around the Waikato District.

    Four vehicles have been impound today and two vehicles were impounded earlier this week as part of the ongoing operation.

    Among the vehicles impounded was a Mazda Atenza -- with tyres so frayed the steel threads were showing.

    Waikato Road Policing Manager Inspector Jeff Penno says Police don't have anything against car enthusiasts -- but they will step in if members of the public are put at risk.
