Police are picking on us says boy racer

Echo: Police are picking on us says boy racer Police are picking on us says boy racer

BOY racers claim they don’t all speed around Lakeside – and only meet up to admire each other’s cars.

They say since police stepped up patrols, the shopping centre has become a no-go area for them.

Lewis Turner, 18, of Grove Road, Grays, who owns a souped-up Nissan Micra, said: “We do not all want to race.

“We want to view each others cars and that is all. But it is becoming increasingly hard to meet up because of these police restrictions.

“Two months ago there was a big meet where all the car engines were off and we just walked around to see everyone’s cars.

“No one gets hurt and noise pollution was down. However, if places like this are taken away, racers will only meet up at roadsides or other more anti-social places.”

He said police would be more than welcome to attend any of their meets, and said similar arrangements had been made in the past in places like Rayleigh.

Lewis added: “We like seeing the police involved and completely respect what they are doing.”

Police have launched a crackdown on boy racers at Lakeside and in October more than 80 people were charged for speeding offences.

Thurrock Chief Insp Ben Hodder said the car park at the new Range centre had been popular in the past with cruisers.

He added: “We have been working with landowners to improve security measures to reduce the risks around poor driving and anti-social behaviour.

“But I would be happy to arrange a meeting with cruisers to discuss concerns.”

Meanwhile, redesigning the roads around Lakeside has been suggested in a new attempt to stop racers.

Tunde Ojetola, South Chafford councillor, and Simon Wootton, North Chafford councillor, representing Chafford residents, met with Mr Hodder.

Mr Ojetola said: “A redesign is necessary. Racers would be deterred if road measures were installed, as they wouldn’t want to damage their cars.”

We have had this debate before, if a vehicle meets ALL relevant requirements plus the driver is insured - etc and is breaking NO laws then the police should not ask you to move on "specially along Southend sea front"

However, similiar to everyone else if you break the law you should be knocked - off. The article states 80 people have been done for speeding - well done to the police for upholding the law.

By "souped up" he actually means he spilt some Chicken & Mushroom cup-a-soup one night as he was desperately waiting for someone to admire (laugh at) his car. "We don't all speed..." apart from the 80 that did do, that is.

OK, so you have a problem with possible racers, so you therefore encourage them to take an advanced driving course, which actually promotes quicker driving through safer practices. Why would people want to go banger racing? that isn't what cruising is about, cruising can also be known a concourse shows. Where people bring their pride and joys to show to others what they have done.

The Echo also shows its bias by calling cruisers Boy-Racers, they're not all like that, but like any group that meets up you'll get people who ruin it for others. The meets I used to go to would police themselves and there was no trouble.

We've had this on here ad nauseum, people with modified cars want to show them off, as long as the car is legal what is wrong? People find enjoyment in different things, so instead of stifling a culture you don't understand and pushing it "underground", encourage it and make it main stream.

Because banger racing is about destorying a car not modifying it and an advanced drivers course is nothing to do with admiring works carried out to a vehicle.

Yes 80 people have been arrested for speeding but if you have ever been to one of these meets then you would understand that this is a very small proportion of those who actually attend to do what this young lad is saying - admire other vehicles. This is exactly what I used to do a few years ago, go to meet up with like minded people and have a chat, admire their cars and have mine admired.

I will repeat my previous comment on other stories like this one - just because someone has a modified vehicle, it does not make them a "boy racer"!

Never needed an engineers report on any policy I have taken out? All my policies have been on modified cars.

My first year was when I was 17: £2,400 with Quinn. (1.6 litre)
Second £1,600 with Aviva (1.6 Litre)
Third £1,400 with Flux Direct (3.2 Litre)
Forth £540 with Flux Direct (3.2 Litre)

Police are picking on us says boy racer

BOY racers claim they don’t all speed around Lakeside

Lewis Turner, 18, of Grove Road, Grays, who owns a souped-up Nissan Micra, said: “We do not all want to race

However, if places like this are taken away, racers will only meet up at roadsides or other more anti-social places.”

Thurrock Chief Insp Ben Hodder said the car park at the new Range centre had been popular in the past with cruisers.

And so it goes on, almost every other paragraph contradicting the last. Are we talking about cruisers - anybody remember the Battersea Cruise- or (boy) racers, a completely different animal.
It seems Nan's Micra doesn't seem to know either bless him, as the headline calls him a boy racer but he later states he doesn't want to race.
Another poorly written Echo story.

Which means if you add on your earned NCD your premium is actually about double? Full comp or third party? Funny that Flux Direct never come up on my searches for cheapest premium, but then I have a non modified car. So if the premium is so reasonable do so many get prosecuted for no insurance?

Which means if you add on your earned NCD your premium is actually about double? Full comp or third party? Funny that Flux Direct never come up on my searches for cheapest premium, but then I have a non modified car. So if the premium is so reasonable do so many get prosecuted for no insurance?
I have just looked up Flux Insurance received 1star by every single person. Described as "con artists" by one. Good luck to you, but judging by the comments I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole.
