n Royston has experienced vehicles being used in an anti-social manner which has resulted in the owners being warned.
Any continued use of such behaviour will allow police to seize the vehicle.
Drivers must not race, or wheel-spin, or do anything else with their vehicles in a public place likely to cause harassment or distress to another.
