Council to fine anti-social drivers

Bradford Council have decided to crack down on drivers who play loud music, rev their engines, or engage in other acts deemed to be anti-social.

The council will introduce a district wide Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to tackle ‘nuisance, anti social driving’.

The decision was taken after two-thirds of respondents to a survey of more than 1,200 people said nuisance drivers were a problem that made them feel ‘unsafe’.

Anyone judged to be engaged in anti-social behaviour will now face fixed penalty fines of £100.

‘The Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) is one part of a wider partnership response to tackle nuisance, anti social use of a vehicle,’ said Cllr Abdul Jabar, Bradford Council executive member for neighbourhoods and community safety.

‘The steps we have already taken, with initiatives like Operation Steerside, are definitely working, with the number of reports reducing but we want to improve confidence and reassure our communities that this type of behaviour will not go unchallenged by the local authority or the police.’
