Police operation targets anti-social driving at Moorland Centre

Residents and businesses have been reporting increased anti-social driving in the area.

Drivers who regularly commit anti-social driving were targeted by a police operation at the Moorland Centre in Lincoln over the last two nights.

Lincolnshire PCSOs and Special Constables ran an interactive campaign after numerous reports from businesses and local residents.

Ironically, whilst in the area officers also dealt with an insurance issue and a man who was wanted for three shoplifting offences.

PCSO Flack (pictured) and Carter, along with assistance from the Special Constabulary, ran the event on Wednesday and Thursday February 21-22 at the Moorland Centre in Lincoln.

Video clips on the force engagement van were shown to highlight the consequences of anti-social driving, while Lincoln Road Safety Partnership also attended carrying out speed enforcements in the area.

PCSO Flack said: “The event was well received by younger motorists, businesses and local residents, with over 30 motorists warned that if they drive in a manner which causes annoyance, alarm, or distress to members of the public, on or off the road, it could result in their vehicle being seized.”

If you witness any form of anti-social driving, please report it on 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress.
