ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque Police are blocking off downtown Central Avenue on weekend evenings after complaints from residents and business owners about noisy behavior from cruisers in the area.

KRQE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Pgh7ty ) that Albuquerque Police Department Lt. Scott LaFayette says complaints about the cruisers have specifically focused on drinking in the parking lots. Videos from KRQE also show cars doing late-night tire burnouts and making slow loops in the middle of an intersection.

Albuquerque City Councilor Klarissa Pena says she’s worried that officers will lump all cruisers together unfairly.

Pena says cruising is a part of the area’s culture. She says there may be “a few bad apples” but that most are trying to enjoy their Sunday afternoon.
