Why do the police seemingly ignore reports of high-performance cars speeding and making excessive noise in Kensington and Chelsea?

This is primarily an issue of noise and therefore more of an issue for the Local Authority. Nonetheless, the MPS is aware of the nuisance the problem causes for residents and conducts regular operations to try and deal with the problem at ward level using legislation from the Road Traffic Act. An operation on 6 February, for example, saw a Lamborghini seized for having no insurance.
