Car cruiser first to appear in MK court, fined almost £700

Friday 11 June 2021

A car cruiser became the first to appear in an MK Court today.

The man failed to pay the £100 fixed penalty notice issued at the time of the offence and as a result has now been fined almost £700.

Speaking of the incident, Cabinet Member for Community Safety Cllr Lauren Townsend said: “I hope this case sends out a strong message that anti-social behaviour associated with car cruising will not be tolerated in MK. It’s dangerous and can have fatal consequences – we won’t allow you to abuse our roads and put our residents’ safety at risk.”

Antisocial car cruising (including excessive speed and noise) was banned by MK Council via a Public Space Protection Order in 2020, giving Thames Valley Police the power to fine people up to £1,000. Since this order, 31 people have been fined.

Up to this point, a majority of drivers caught participating in such behaviour in Milton Keynes had been from outside of the area.
