Bad drivers invading public space.

Grampian Police carried out patrols in both marked and unmarked cars on Sunday, December 4, within the former Focus car park on Windmill Road, after receiving complaints from the public about anti-social driving in the area.As a result, three male drivers received formal warnings. If caught again their vehicles will be seized.Sergeant Gareth Hannan, of the Buchan Local Policing Team, said: “Three drivers were seen driving within the car park, excessively revving their engines and driving at speed. As a result, the three drivers, who were all aged between 18 and 21, received formal warnings regarding anti-social driving.”Grampian Police are committed to tackling anti-social behaviour of any kind. These three drivers were warned in terms of the Antisocial Behaviour (Scotland) Act 2004, which allows us to take their cars from them should they be seen driving anti-socially again.”I would encourage members of the public to report any driving they consider to be anti-social and assure residents that that we will continue to vigorously police this type of behaviour and deal with it firmly.”
