Sergio Zavala bids goodbye to what remains of his yellow 1993 Honda Civic after it was flattened at an auto graveyard in Rialto. His was one of six vehicles destroyed Wednesday as law enforcement officials ramp up efforts against street racing, which has been responsible for or suspected in 13 deaths in Southern California since March.

Nearly 1,000 people--drivers and spectators--have been arrested in connection with street racing over the last two years just in San Bernardino County.
