An anti-social driver from Fenland has been given a Community Protection Notice following numerous complaints from local residents.

The 21-year-old from the Chatteris area was issued the notice following numerous complaints from residents of Chatteris about the individual’s manner of driving.

The notice, which was issued on Wednesday (October 7), prevents the driver from causing any further distress to members of the local community. Failure to comply with these requirements could result in prosecution by the courts.

PC Janine Hagger said: “The community have been left fearing for their safety after witnessing reckless, erratic and at times dangerous driving from the individual.

“This is a strong message to all drivers, particularly young drivers, that anti-social driving will not be tolerated and will be dealt with robustly.

“I would urge members of the community to report nuisance drivers and number plates of the vehicles they use to police in order for the local policing team to keep on top of the persistent offenders.”

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 allows police to issue a community protection notice to an individual aged 16 or over if the conduct of the individual is having a detrimental effect, of a persistent or continuing nature, on the quality of life of those in the locality, and the conduct is unreasonable.

Anyone with information about nuisance drivers in the March and Chatteris area should contact police on 101 or by emailing march.npt@cambs.pnn.police.uk.
