POLICE in Derry say officers will seize the ‘noisy’ cars of boy racers causing a nuisance to residents in the city.
PSNI Foyle say on its Facebook page that officers from its Foyle and the Moor Neighbourhood Policing Team officers attended a regular meeting organised by Mickey Cooper of Sinn Fein, with Strand Road residents, last night.
“This followed previous meetings where anti-social driving had been discussed.
“Police and Mr Cooper were very pleased to hear that the residents felt that incidents had reduced.
“Police have been speaking to the young drivers and explaining to them that excess noise, illegal vehicle modifications and excess speed will not be tolerated.
“Police have also been taking a zero tolerance aproach to detected driving offences and will continue to do so.
“A new CCTV camera on Strand Road will help us in this respect and any driver continuing to cause alarm and distress to residents runs the risk of having their car seized.”
