The latest videos showing a car being driven recklessly were published online on Thursday, with a description referring to the 'Divis Hoods' - the name used by a gang of youths in the area.
A group of young men can be seen watching from the pavement and some are recording the events on their phones as the vehicle in question veers dangerously close to them.
And, in a separate video, a taxi has to pull onto the pavement to avoid the high speed stunts.
Reacting to the latest footage, Tommy Holland from Families Bereaved Through Car Crime has asked those involved to think of the consequences.
"You actually see a father wheeling his baby in a pram, having to pull the pram back from the edge," he said.
"It's seconds away from this 'joyrider' turning into a death-driver.
"Somewhere a family is going to be devastated, somewhere a family is going to be heartbroken, and somewhere a family is going to be visiting those involved in this in jail."
Mr Holland has warned those who may think the activity is "fun" that anyone could become a victim of this type of crime.
"Look at their mothers and fathers, their grandparents, sisters and brothers - it could be one of them out there killed. How would they feel if a member of their closest family, if they were killed?" he added.
They are no sooner arrested than they are seen back on the streets. This needs to stop and judges need to take a harder line before someone is killed.
Joyriding has been an ongoing problem in west Belfast and dozens of videos of rampaging drivers have been posted online.
Outrage was sparked in January when it emerged that hundreds of people had attended an illegal street race in the area on New Year's Eve.
Police and community leaders are working to tackle the problem, but Mr Holland thinks the culprits are not being punished appropriately.
"There needs to be a hard response to this, a much quicker and robust response. The auto-crime team are doing their best, they are out there trying to apprehend and make sure that these people who are consistently involved in car crime are taken off the streets," he said.
But he described the courts system as a "revolving door of justice".
Police have said they are "committed to making the streets of west Belfast a safer place to live" and are effectively tackling car crime.
Since January, PSNI figures show downward trends in criminal damage to vehicles, theft and recovered vehicles in the area.
"This should provide reassurance the PSNI are committed to giving the people of the area the policing service they expect, however we would also highlight the need for ongoing assistance from the community by reporting any incidents of anti-social behaviour and criminal activity to their local PSNI station," a PSNI spokesperson said.
Police have said anyone with concerns should contact police at Grosvenor Road station on 0845 600 8000 or email their local Neighbourhood Policing Team.
