UPDATE JAN. 4: Las Vegas police have now responded to the area of Charleston and Hollywood boulevards where there have been several reports of reckless drivers.
“They drag race and they drift -- outside the houses," says Jenn Pearre, who lives just a blocks away.
Pearre told 13 Action News the same thing is happening in her neighborhood.
"They go at least 45 miles per hour up this tiny little cul du sac," she says.
Pearre says reckless drivers race up and the down the street right in front of her home.
"Revving their engines and then took off like a bat out of hell,” says Pearre, a mom of three young children.
She worries the drivers are making the streets too dangerous.
"Now I have the fear of do I let my kids come out and play with me here, or do I have to keep them secluded in the back yard?" she asks. "What if they lose control of their car? There goes one of my kids. There goes my home. There goes my car."
A neighbor sent 13 Action News pictures showing skid marks along Amber Crest Street. Young men, some just teenagers, stood in the middle of the street, forcing cars to swerve around them.
"It can be like two or three in the morning and they're racing up and down the street, skidding all over and revving the engine," says a woman who would only give us the name Karen.
She complained that screaming engines and screeching tires frighten her young granddaughter.
"She's wanting to sleep with us because it wakes her up. It wakes all of us up."
Karen told 13 Action News she complained to police one time. Someone vandalized her daughter's car as payback.
"The next morning. She had a switchblade in her tire," Karen says.
Police tell us they’ve issued warnings to some of the people they believe to be the drivers in question and have visited high schools.
Police say they’re also patrolling the area more during the times those reckless drivers are on the road.
