Car noise nuisance – townsfolk complain

Police have received a series of complaints about excessive noise from vehicles over the weekend, with town centre homes on Bayhead and the surrounding area especially affected.

Complaints included excessive revving of engines and modified exhausts causing considerable noise.

Police will follow-up any report of noise which includes details of the vehicle, including a description and registration number. Vehicle ‘ASBOs’ can be issued to drivers if the details are confirmed and could lead to the driver having the vehicle confiscated if they are warned more than once about the same issue.
