Council clamp down on Exmouth boy racers

Boy racers heading for Exmouth are being warned their anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated in council car parks.

East Devon District Council’s REACT team have been targeting its car parks throughout the town, including Exmouth seafront, taking a tough line on irresponsible drivers.

Those suspected of vehicle-related anti social behaviour have been served with a warning letter from Gerry Moore, the district council’s community safety and anti-social behaviour co-ordinator.

Repetition of anti-social behaviour could result in the driver facing prosecution,

The council said letters would be handed to those guilty of shouting, using abusive language and dropping litter.

Inconsiderate driving around the car parks, causing damage to tarmac, revving of car engines, use of the car horns and the playing of loud music would also warrant a warning, the council said.

An East Devon District Council spokesman said: “The East and Mid Devon Community Safety Partnership is committed to working with other agencies to reduce levels of nuisance and anti social behaviour.

“Our intention is to help to prevent this type of behaviour and to improve the quality of life for residents and visitors to the area.

“The purpose the letter is to bring to the driver’s attention that the partnership is concerned about the behaviour of small groups of people who regularly use the East Devon District Council car parks across the district.”
