Catch boy racers in act

WITH regards to your story about boy racers using Lockett Road in Ashton as a race track, (WEP, June 23) I suppose it’s a difficult one to combat, given that the majority of the ‘course’ is on an industrial estate with HGVs and buses going in and out all day and night.

If you put ‘chicanes’ in it will only impact on the legitimate drivers and make it more fun for the boy racers, and if the police stopped everybody in a ‘hot hatch’ there would be complaints from people who work on the estate of police harassment etc, so realistically they have to catch them in the act, and with the police being very thin on the ground, it is easier said than done.
