Puerto Rico police have issued more than 100 tickets to drivers who organized a caravan to honor “Fast & Furious” actor Paul Walker and created massive traffic jams across the island’s capital, the Associated Press reports.

Walker had traveled to Puerto Rico in mid-2010 to film the movie’s fifth installment in San Juan and nearby areas.

Police traffic coordinator Jorge Hernandez told reporters Wednesday that officers issued at least 72 speeding tickets and detained six people suspected of drunk driving.

He said drivers late Tuesday closed down a tunnel in San Juan and a bridge near Puerto Rico’s main international airport. He said two main highways also became heavily congested.

Walker died Saturday in Los Angeles after a car he was in crashed and exploded in flames.
