Officers are continuing to crack down on street racing in South Staffordshire.
Across Saturday (23 April) and Sunday (24 April), a number of officers from the Roads Policing Unit at Staffordshire Police conducted a proactive operation to crack down on street racing.
On Saturday (23 April), 24 speeding offences were committed on Birmingham Road, Wedge Mills.
The following day saw seven speeding offences on New Road in Featherstone and 120 drivers caught speeding on the A449 in Coven Heath – with 83 miles per hour (mph) recorded in one instance.
On Sunday, officers targeted planned racing events near junctions one and two of the M54.
Six vehicles were seized for no insurance and tax, 32 traffic offence reports were also issued, including nine for excessive speed.
In addition, a 21-year-old man, from Stafford, was arrested on suspicion of driving a motor vehicle with a proportion of a specified controlled drug above the specified limit.
He has since been released under investigation.
Inspector Louise Booker, of the South Staffordshire Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “The perpetrators who organise these dangerous racing events cause significant distress and danger to local residents and innocent road users.
“We will continue to curtail drivers who do not respect the roads within the county and address the concerns of our communities directly.”
