    Default Notts Council Ban Car Meets

    Seems our Boring Councils are at it again

    http://www.pistonheads.com/news/defa...?storyId=16378

    Notts council and Police ban the congregation of five or more cars



    An English county council has banned the congregation of cars, according to the BBC. Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottinghamshire Police applied for the injunction from the county court. It prevents five or more vehicles from "congregating, driving in convoy, or racing" in the county.
    The council said the move followed hundreds of complaints about the noise and anti-social behaviour of what it called ‘boy racers.’ It claims the injunction is aimed at the modified car movement.
    Nottingham City Council obtained a similar injunction in 2006 which applied to the city.
    The injunction carries a maximum two year jail sentence for anyone found breaching the order and will remain in place for two years before review.

    Its a Bit daft I think - there is going to be a lot of backlash with this methinks... Miserable bunch

    Absolutely obsurd...

    So your sitting in traffic and you notice two modified cars in front (one with a splitter, one with a spoiler)... and two behind you (one with chrome door handles and one with an exhaust)... that constitutes a modified car convoy and your subject to a 2 year prison sentance !!

    What about the car park to a performance garage !! All the cars on the ramps getting modified are classed as a 'congregation' !!!!

    OH MY GOD.... .... ferkin country is laugh-able !!

    What distance from another vehicle is considered 'congregating'.... so all McDonalds, KFC, Cinema, multi-storey car parks are out of bounds in case there are modified cars already there !!

    Racing.... OK.... WHO's racing..... I'm driving down the road, and some Saxo Tw@t decides to pitch his car against mine !!!..... I'm not racing, but he might be !!!... so who gets the prison sentance!! as it takes two to race !! - and what if I happen to be over the speed limit... OK I'm speeding... but I'm certainly not racing... if that was the case, every rep coming out of London on the M40 would be locked up !!

    All modified cars (especially the expensive Irmscher mods) should be banned on the basis that I can't afford them.....









    Maybe not.
    Nice to see what others do with their cars - though sometimes the limits of good taste are breached a little (blue lights, funny graphics etc look OK only on some cars)

    typical,
    our local council do all that they can to pi$$ of all the people who look after there pride and joy
    admitedly there are a small minoroty of chav-nails about but the easiest thing to do is fine them and send em to the clink, why not give them a spot of land and charge a few quid to park there ie:- make money anyway, no thats to easy and yet still they do very little about the scum bags who drive around un-taxed un-insured and with no license, most of these are scrotes who have no money or are so called refugee's........
    it realy pi$$e$ me off when you see some lad/lass who has spent loads of money on his/her motor being pulled and fined for something ridiculus because they know that they will pay up and thats that.. not like a beat up metro with no tax or m.o.t with some tramp driving it who can't afford to do either and will never pay a fine or adhere to a conviction on his/her license...this realy does my ****ing head in
    god i love living in a comunist state......

    Put it down to them being County supporters, ask for immunity if you have a red sticker in the window.
