The temporary injunction banning ‘street racing’, also known as ‘car cruising’, is now in force across the Black Country.
The interim injunction prohibits people from participating, as a driver, a rider or a passenger, in a gathering of two or more people at which some of those present engage in motor racing or motor stunts or other dangerous or obstructive driving.
The interim injunction is in place throughout the boroughs of Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall and anyone breaching it will be in contempt of court and could face penalties including imprisonment, a fine or an order to have their assets seized.
The application was led by the City of Wolverhampton Council on behalf of Dudley Council, Sandwell Council and Walsall Council, and supported by West Midlands Police. See our Street Racing Injunction webpage for more details.
Incidents of street racing should be reported by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling West Midlands Police on 101. In an emergency, always dial 999.
