SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Puerto Rico police have issued more than 100 tickets to drivers who organized a caravan to honour "Fast & Furious" actor Paul Walker and created massive traffic jams across the island's capital.

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

Police traffic co-ordinator 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.
