The local beat team have started to see an increase in calls regarding anti-social driving in Cheddar village and the gorge.
Anti Social driving is where a vehicle or group of vehicle's are being used in a manner which is likely to cause members of the public harassment, alarm or distress. For example, loud music, excessive and unnecessary engine revving, wheels spinning, hand brake turns and drifting.
The local beat team are conducting proactive patrols on evenings and weekends to monitor the situation. If you witness a vehicle being used in this manner please call 101 or email the beat team with the registration, description of vehicle and the manner in which the vehicle was being used.
The local Beat Team have been conducting regular patrols in the area which have resulted in the following being issued: 18 x Anti-Social Behaviour letters, 6 x Section 59 warnings, 2 x Section 35 warnings, 2 x Traffic Offence Reports and 12 x words of advice / educational advice. We continue to work towards reducing anti - social behaviour in the Gorge and ask that members of the public continue to report any incidents that they witness.
