Exmouth police are hoping a successful prosecution will send out a message that dangerous driving in the town will not be tolerated.

A man was sentenced to 12 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, and disqualified from driving for 12 months, for dangerous driving, at Exeter Magistrates’ Court, following an incident which occurred on Exmouth seafront.

After the sentencing, PC Chrissy Ward said: “Antisocial driving in any public area is annoying and extremely dangerous.

“I’m hoping that this result will send out a message to those drivers who persist in driving in an unacceptable manner.”

Community safety and antisocial behaviour officer Gerry Moore said: “The police and East Devon District Council have worked with local residents in Exmouth over the last 12 months to try to tackle the issue of antisocial driving.
