Police step up patrols in Black Country boy racer crackdown

Walsall | News | Published:

Police patrols are being stepped up to reports that dozens of car cruisers have been gathering at an industrial estate.

Scores of drivers have been spotted at Maybrook Industrial Estate in Brownhills.

There were 18 registration numbers identified last weekend and dispersed by officers.

West Midlands Police say any vehicles seen driving in an anti-social manner can be served with a section 59 notice.

These give officers power to seize any vehicles being driven in anti-social way on a further occasion.

It comes as final details of an injunction aimed at stopping car cruising around streets of the Black Country car are being drawn up.

All four Black Country councils are teaming up to apply to the High Court for an injunction which could see people who participate in or watch car cruising events jailed for up to two years.

Moxley, in Walsall, has suffered from boy racers meeting on streets and car parks in the area at night and speeding around the streets.
