Young car drivers gather most nights on the Spur Retail Park Holmer Road Hereford. (Halfords | Dunelm | Hobbycraft | Maplin) most of the time they are racing around the car park in their cars.

 

Gates were installed only a few months ago and it is down to the last manager to leave the park to lock the gates. This happened during the first few weeks only and now the gates never appear to be locked at night. 

 

These drivers sit there for hours and just throw all of their rubbish out onto the floor, this is disgusting! There are bins provided so there is really no excuse. 

 

It would be good to catch the culprits and have them prosecuted, I have already taken a few photographs and logged number plates.

It's private property - they can make as much mess as they want to, but it's not a prosecutable offence. Noise might be a different issue or failure to leave if requested by the owners.

So what happens when all this rubbish is blown across onto the road? Unbelievable to think so called adults can behave like this, they should be ashamed of themselves.

Private car park or not action can be taken by the police. SECTION59 notices concern the use of a vehicle in a manner that cause annoyance, harassment or distress. Police issue a notice which is valid against the driver AND vehicle for 12 months. If the driver or someone else driving the same vehicle acts in a similar manner in the 12mths, the car is seized and a large release fee has to be paid PLUS the insurance company are told AND they do cancel the drivers insurance.
So if this conduct effects you, report it to the police (be prepared to give a written statement) and I can assure you action will be taken.
It's not about persecution of young (ish) drivers but about treating issues seriously and stopping this stupid and sometimes dangerous behaviour

Thank you for this information. I was not aware of Section 59  :Thumbs-Up:

Have just caught up on the HVFB page - dear God is that the intelligence level of the 18-25 year old demographic? The bins are full, better leave it on the floor - Really??? no wonder things are going down the pan so fast. A lot of those commenting supporting the "enthusiasts" are the same ones that were supporting that idiot last year with his horse overtake (remember that?), so explains a lot really.

 

Plus, they really need to learn the difference - enthusiasts don't drive like idiots, they look after their cars, and are more inclined to take them to properly organised shows and events that take place in appropriate surroundings, such as race tracks or aerodromes - not the local Halfords car park.

 

As an example, my brother in law is in his mid 50's, drives a highly modified Subaru Imprezza which is stickered up McRae style - yet he doesn't drive like a lunatic, and enjoys the car scene by going to proper shows and meeting with other like minded owners. These idiots really shouldn't have a licence if they can't operate a bin properly. How much intelligence does it take?

Absolute joke, that's about the limit of the intelligence of some of them.  :Surprised_32:

A few immature people responding to comments.At the end of the day this is privately owned car park for the use of people using the stores only.

Well the retail park owners have now put up signs and the managers onsite are enforcing the gate closures every night. The problem has now moved to the retail park next door, hopefully these people will have the sense to realise by making a nuisance of themselves and leaving rubbish around they will get moved on. I will add that this is obviously not all of the car enthusiasts and as usual it is the minority that spoil it for the others.

One of the posts at the back of the retail park was damaged by a lorry searier this yeaar and has not been repaired, also the store mangers/supervisors locked the gates for about the forst 3 weeks and the no longer bother, this is the result...

What is the point of installing these gates if they never close them? 

 

I cannot belive that people are that lazy that they do not put their own rubiish in the bins, it rally annoys me, besides, they should be on this park at night anyway.
