Morrisons takes action to stop nighttime illegal car racing

MORRISONS has taken action to stop nighttime illegal car racing at one of its shops after a suspended and uninsured BMW driver sped away from police when he was seen pulling donuts there.

Speed ​​bumps have been laid in the parking lot and the gates locked overnight, a spokesman for the supermarket giant confirmed.

Daniaal Mohammed, 22, was recently sentenced to two years in prison on two counts of dangerous driving, one during a police pursuit from the car park in which he smashed through a wall into a Mercedes dealership, causing £50,000 damage.

The judge, clerk Judy Dawson, said he was caught just before midnight at some sort of unauthorized “car racing event” in the rented BMW.

The court was told that on August 7, 2020, police heard tires squeal and saw Mohammed pulling donuts in the parking lot.

Prosecutors stated that Morrisons’ car park on Bradford’s Thornton Road “had a good reputation for this type of driving activity”.

A Morrisons spokeswoman told the Telegraph & Argus: “This is a shopping center with a number of branches. To prevent this anti-social behavior, Morrisons has arranged for the gates of the retail park to be locked overnight between 9:30 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.

“We also recently installed speed bumps throughout the parking lot. In addition, we are working with the police to prevent and address anti-social behavior in the area.”

During the trial at Bradford Crown Court, the police officer was found to have activated his sirens and flashing lights and ordered Mohammed to stop.

Instead, he sped away, went straight through a red light, and almost crashed into another vehicle.

Moments later, the BMW crashed through a wall in the Mercedes-Benz garage, causing £50,000 of damage.

Mohammed escaped on foot after the crash and was caught by CCTV walking back to an apartment on Peckover Street in Little Germany.

During an amber weather warning for Storm Eunice, he continued to travel dangerously on the M6, traveling 125mph over the Thelwall Viaduct on 18 February in high winds, hail and sleet.

He pleaded guilty to two offenses of dangerous driving by not stopping and disqualifying and driving without a license.

Mohammed, of Blackwood Grove, Halifax, was jailed for a total of two years and barred from driving for three years and until he passes an expanded test.
