A Dunedin father says more boy racers than ever are speeding past his Caversham home, doing burnouts and putting children's lives at risk.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the man is calling on police to step up patrols in the area, in response to the groups of boy racers he says have turned South Road into a race-track.

On Sunday evening, he filmed a group of young people milling about their cars in Caversham Place, suspecting they were arranging a street race.

The two vehicles then lined up, before speeding around the corner into South Road, as one of the cars travelled on the wrong side of the road.

The man says the level of boy racer activity is the highest he's seen while living in Caversham.

Police are encouraging people to make complaints if they see dangerous driving.
