Humberside Police crack down on nuisance drivers

Humberside Police have warned that nuisance drivers are not welcome in North East Lincolnshire, after one was caught speeding in Cleethorpes.

The driver, who was caught doing 56mph on Kings Road in Cleethorpes, is among many who have been fined as police tackle speeding and antisocial driving.

Kings Road has a 30mph speed limit, meaning the driver was nearly doubling it.

Humberside Police Officers have been working with Safer Roads Humber teams to take action against those ignoring the rules.

Two other North East Lincolnshire drivers have been hit with section 59 notices.

This means that their vehicles can be seized if they are found to be using them antisocially in the next 12 months.

Officers have also been patrolling Cleethorpes hotspots such as the Boating Lake car park.

Humberside Police community beat manager PC Dave Cave said:

“We know that antisocial behaviour can and does have a real impact on communities and that’s why we’re doing all we can to tackle it.

“What we have found is that of the thousands of drivers we have observed, only a tiny proportion have been committing offences.

“Where we have found this to be the case we’re taking action but what we have found to be really effective is going out and talking to drivers in areas such as the Boating Lake car park and building up those relationships.

“Unsurprisingly, a lot of our officers are also interested in cars, so we use that common interest to break down barriers and make them aware of the impact their behaviour can have on others.

“We’ll continue to monitor the situation and if you have concerns about antisocial driving them please get in touch.

“By letting us know what’s happening and where and when it’s happening, we can make sure we have the right people in place to deal with it.”
