Warning over Yarmouth anti-social drivers

Car enthusiasts who gather in Great Yarmouth are being reminded that police will not tolerate anti-social driving – seizing vehicles for repeat offenders.

Police in Great Yarmouth are clamping down on the issue, which increases during the summer months, with a public spaces protection order (PSPO) in place which can restrict anti-social driving in a specific area.

A motorcyclist was spotted doing wheelies on St Nicholas Car Park, South Beach Parade, last month, Wednesday 31 July 2019, and has been issued with a PSPO breach and a Section 59 notice which means his vehicle can been seized if he is found to be driving inconsiderately or carelessly within the next 12 months.

PC Richard Temple, based in the Operational Partnership Team at Great Yarmouth, said:

"Although we welcome vehicle enthusiasts in Great Yarmouth, we will not tolerate anti-social driving disturbing residents who live in the area

"We will make sure that anyone not adhering to the law will be dealt with appropriately and that could mean seizing your vehicle.”

Anyone with information about anti-social driving in Great Yarmouth should contact police on 101.

Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
