Racing cycles and cars block interstate traffic

(PLATTE CITY, Mo., AP) — The Missouri State Highway Patrol says more than 40 motorcycles and racing cars held up traffic while performing stunts on Interstate 435 in northwest Missouri.

The patrol says the racers buzzed other drivers and caused a traffic jam on Interstate 435 in Platte County Sunday evening. They blocked three lanes of highway traffic while recording each other performing stunts.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/Uk5ZB1) the riders were weaving through traffic, racing and performing motorcycle stunts.

Patrol spokesman Collin Stosberg says if the racers are caught, they could face charges of impeding traffic and careless driving.
