Written by on August 31, 2022

It’s normal to travel to famous movie sites to take a selfie or just experience being there. It’s completely another to disrupt the lives who live near these sites. I mean, the person who lives in the famous “Breaking Bad” house in Albuquerque has had it with fans stopping by.

Residents in Angelino Heights, California are fed up with street racing that takes place in their neighborhoods day and night. And they say that the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise is to blame.

According to the Los Angeles Times:

On Friday, protesters in Angelino Heights rallied against the filming of “Fast X,” the 10th installment in the franchise, which residents say glamorizes street racing and illegal takeovers, fueling a dangerous trend not just in Angelino Heights but anywhere the films have resonated with young drivers.

Residents are lobbying the City of Los Angeles to redesign the streets in the neighborhood to cut down and discourage the prevalence of street racing.
