An injunction has been granted to stop “car cruisers” in South Nottinghamshire.
Local authorities say they have received hundreds of complaints from concerned residents and businesses. The injunction bans drivers and passengers from taking part in a “car cruise” between Burton Joyce and Colwick.
The injunction also prohibits drivers from causing excessive noise, danger to road users, injury to others and damage to property.
Gedling Borough Council says more than 200 cars have been sighted at the Victoria Retail Park in Netherfield, Nottinghamshire on Sunday evenings. Officers from Nottinghamshire Police will be at the retail park from Easter Sunday and the force says high visibility patrols will be in place. Those caught could face fixed penalty notices and potentially have their vehicles seized.
