The interim ban on street racing in the Black Country is to continue, after a High Court ruling, as our focus on keeping the region’s roads safe goes on.

The injunction prohibits people driving or being a passenger or rider at a gathering where there is motor racing or motor stunts or other dangerous or obstructive driving.

It covers the whole of the boroughs of Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall.

And we will also be supporting the application, led by the City of Wolverhampton Council, for a full injunction which is due to be heard early next year.

Our ultimate aim is to keep the roads safe for all and we are committed to tackling street cruising and racing in the West Midlands, under Operation Hercules.

We continue to work closely with partners on identifying, disrupting and enforcing against those taking part or observing illegal street racing, which in the past has sadly proved to have fatal consequences.

Anyone breaching the ban will be in contempt of court and could face penalties including imprisonment, a fine, or an order to have their assets seized.
