Police plead for anti-social driving in West Sussex


The POLICE have asked drivers to take action against anti-social driving.

Speeding, drifting, spinning wheels and excessive noise are among the offenses which officers say are causing a nuisance and affecting the lives of people in West Sussex, particularly in rural areas.

Chief Inspector Nick Dias of the Crawley and Mid Sussex Neighborhood Policing Team said lives were also at risk.

“Not only is this type of activity antisocial, it’s dangerous and takes a split second to create a disaster,” he said.

“While the vast majority of drivers are safe and competent road users, there is a minority who behave irresponsibly and do not believe the law applies to them. But the law is there to protect everyone.”

Sussex Police work with partners such as the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership to provide education and enforcement for road traffic issues throughout the year.

The force is also working with local authorities to identify and address concerns such as:

Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) have been introduced in towns such as Burgess Hill and Crawley and the City Council has imposed a range of fines on those who have breached the terms of the PSPO in Crawley.

Roads Policing Unit officers conduct regular patrols in areas where anti-social driving is a common problem, including in Arun and Chichester.

Chief Inspector Dias added: “We recognize that anti-social driving is not limited to these areas but is a problem across West Sussex and as such we continue to monitor and respond to reports and proactively patrol ‘Hot Spot’- areas.

“Despite our best efforts, we cannot always be everywhere – although we could be everywhere – and we urge the public to remain vigilant and report any incidents to us.

“Ultimately, our goal is to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on our roads each year, and that starts with education. Safe driving saves lives.”
