The Metropolitan Police Service's Roads Transport Policing Command (RTPC) is planning a taskforce to tackle the increasing problem of anti-social behaviour and dangerous driving which occurs at car meets.
Officers will use a range of tactics to combat this including the use of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras, tyre deflation systems, and dispersal zone orders under the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003.
Specially trained officers will be examining vehicles for road worthiness and compliance with construction and use regulations. This will include illegal window tints and non-conforming number plates. Removal trucks will also be on scene for the immediate confiscation of vehicles where appropriate and proportionate.
