Car-cruisers using roads near to the M1 (Junction 27) are being reminded they could face a prison sentence if they are caught racing, riding in convoy and driving at excessive speeds in the area.
Nottinghamshire County Council put in place an injunction in January 2015to reduce car cruising activity at the location but police say the problem has increased in recent weeks.
Nottinghamshire Police has increased its patrols, particularly on Sunday nights to address the issue.
The injunction allows the police to issue notices to offending drivers that warn if they take part in car cruising activity in the vicinity they will be in contempt of court and may be sent to prison with a maximum two-year sentence or an unlimited fine.
20 injunction warnings were issued to drivers in the area on Sunday 18th June alone.
Councillor Gordon Wheeler, Vice-Chair of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Communities and Place Committee, said:
Neighbourhood Inspector Glenn Longden said:
The injunction order was secured by Nottinghamshire Police and other community safety partners.
There are also injunction order bans in place at Chilwell Retail Park and Victoria Retail Park in Netherfield.
All three injunctions will be reviewed in January 2018.
