Mahone was featured in a documentary by Vice that shows drivers blocking busy intersections to drift while groups watch. Watch the documentary below. The documentary comes after two viral videos showed traffic stopped on Lodge Freeway and I-94 while drivers did donuts in the middle of the roadway last year. When the police show up, the drivers flee to another location. According to the drivers, this sometimes happens multiple times in a night. Drivers block traffic on I-94 in Detroit in December 2019.

Mahone was featured in a documentary by Vice that shows drivers blocking busy intersections to drift while groups watch. Watch the documentary below. The documentary comes after two viral videos showed traffic stopped on Lodge Freeway and I-94 while drivers did donuts in the middle of the roadway last year. When the police show up, the drivers flee to another location. According to the drivers, this sometimes happens multiple times in a night. Drivers block traffic on I-94 in Detroit in December 2019.
