An anti social motorist who drives “recklessly and dangerously” around a Fenland town has been issued with a notice following complaints from local residents.
The 21-year-old from the Chatteris area was issued the community protection notice following numerous complaints from residents.
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 notice, which was issued on Wednesday October 7, prevents the driver from causing any further distress to residents.
Failure to comply could result in prosecution by the courts.
