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.
We have increased the numbers of Police present at nights identified to be the busiest times in the week. Both the Traffic and Response colleagues have been supporting the local Neighbourhood Policing Team and have successfully issued tickets for speeding and improper modification to vehicles.
