Bradford Council tackles anti-social driving

Bradford Council has introduced a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to tackle anti-social driving.

Coming into force on June 1, the PSPO will allow the police and council officers to take action against those who make noise, including shouting, swearing or making sexual suggestions.

The measure was introduced after two-thirds of people in a survey of more than 1200 said nuisance drivers were a problem and that they felt "unsafe" on the city's streets due to poor driving.

City of Bradford Council said that 76% of people were in favour of the PSPO, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

Labour councillor Abdul Jabar said: "Without the PSPO, it is difficult for the council or the police to combat anti-social use of a vehicle which does not constitute a breach of a specific motoring law.

"Any action we can take to improve this situation and increase community safety and improve the reputation of the district will be of benefit to residents, visitors and businesses."
