Two North Texas moms had to share the road with the Triple D Boy'z and other car clubs as they were driving cars full of kids to summer camp.
The car club's fast and furious antics left the women fearing for their kids' lives.
They were heading east on Highway 175 toward Kaufman on Sunday, June 9th. They noticed their SUV and the entire freeway was suddenly taken over.
"I didn't know if it was going to turn violent. I didn't know if they were going to ram into us," said one of the moms.
They said there were at least 50 of the custom cars, trucks and SUV's that took over the freeway.
"They were bullies. They were bullying everyone on the road," said the mother.
An 11-year-old boy on his way to summer camp caught video of the tricked out cars, swerving all over the road. One of the cars at Lambo doors turned up and open.
"We were locked in and to be honest I panicked, I was scared to death. They were clearly breaking every law. They were on the feeder roads. I just didn't know if there would be a gun involved or what," said a mother.
"I'm thinking one of them might crash into us. That was probably the scariest thing of my life," said one of the boys.
They saw decals on several cars reading Triple D Boy'z. Members have proudly posted videos of themselves in tricked out cars cruising and weaving across all lanes of traffic and even blocking traffic.
FOX 4 contacted the club, who's founder was quick to apologize for scaring the women, and wanted to clear his group's name.
"I would feel the same way if they did that in front of me," Luis Martinez, Triple D Boy'z Car Club CEO, said. "I apologize to the lady."
Gilbert Gasca has worked with Bad Boyz Kustom in Oak Cliff for the last 18 years, and knows the car club culture.
He said it's family-oriented, safe and fun. But some car clubs take it too far. "There are car clubs out there that do that. It's not respectable. Makes everybody look bad on it," said Gasca.
Either way, the kids and moms will remember the experience in a negative way.
"I would assume that at least one person in that group has a child and I would assume that they would not appreciate their child being held captive in something that was so terrifying," said one of the mothers.
Dallas police say they responded to the mother's 911 calls. They even flew their chopper over the scene. They confirm at least one driver was issued citations and had their car towed.
