from residents regarding 'joyriding' and anti-social driving.
we first reported here last
week, concerned residents and councillors in Burnham-On-Sea have
called on local police to do more to halt the problem of joyriding
in the town.
Ryan Dinham, pictured, from Burnham Police told Burnham-On-Sea.com
this week: "While dangerous driving in Burnham has reduced,
we know the problem does still arise."
year alone we have seized vehicles for excess noise or driving without
valid insurance. Drivers have also been reported to court for driving
without a license."
we have been made aware of specific incidents we will attend and
"It is really important that people report dangerous driving
to us so we can tackle the issue."
is why we encourage people to contact us using either the online
form, calling 101, or if someone is currently driving dangerously
and putting themselves and other road users at risk, dial 999."
