Story that just keeps running
This is not the first time we have reported on the anti-social behaviour that takes place in the Stour Centre’s car park.
In 2008, letters were sent to reckless boy racers from police who had inspected the area warning them over performing wheel-spins and ‘doughnuts’.
One letter, however, was falsely sent to a Stour Centre worker, Zoe Relf, who was told action could be taken if her car was used for anti-social behaviour.
Miss Relf said: “They have labelled me as a racer. All they had to do was wait and see me come out in my works uniform.
“My car is an unpimped Ford Fiesta. It has no boombox or body kit. It is a housewife’s car.
“I can’t afford the tyres to do doughnuts.”
Last year we reported how drivers were racing each other on the town’s busy A2070 dual carriageway.
Motorists were also been spotted drifting, a technique thought to have developed in Japan in the 1970s, where the driver intentionally oversteers, causing the back wheels to lose grip.
Unhappy residents living near the road complained to police about loud music and exhausts as well as the dangers.
Two people got into trouble with police for taking part in the craze last October.
