Secret patrols in effort to intercept ‘boy racers’ in South Holland
Inspector Gareth Boxall.
The secret patrols follow reports of irresponsible in Spalding, Holbeach and Tydd St Mary in recent weeks.
Those driving irresponsibly and causing a nuisance should know that some of our patrols are unmarked so that you’ll never know where we might be
Specialist traffic officers from the East Midlands Operational Support Service have been supporting the crackdown
Inspector Gareth Boxall, Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for South Holland, said: “I continue to encourage members of the public to report these issues to us and if you can provide registration number, that really helps to follow it up, even if we don’t have officers who can attend immediately.
“Those driving irresponsibly and causing a nuisance should know that some of our patrols are unmarked so that you’ll never know where we might be.
“If we catch you, you’re likely to be prosecuted and get points on your licence - if not even lose your licence - we will also consider confiscating your vehicles.
“Aside from that, think about what a nuisance you are to residents and other local people.”
