Police take action on antisocial driving in Portglenone

Police responded to reports of ‘antisocial driving’ on Sunday evening (16 January), after being alerted by the community in Portglenone.

Officers from Ballymena Rural Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPT) attended Main Street in the village.

A spokesperson for Police in Mid and East Antrim said:

“A number of motorists were spoken to, one warning notice was issued, and another driver cautioned on suspicion of dangerous driving. A report will now follow to the Public Prosecution Service (PPS).”

Commenting on the incident, local TUV Alderman Stewart McDonald said:

“Anti-social behaviour of any kind is reprehensible in any form but when it comes to driving, the consequences can potentially be fatal. A car is no plaything. A moment of recklessness can all too quickly result in tragedy and a lifetime of regret.

“I would appeal to those involved in this activity to reflect on the serious consequences which could arise from their actions and would commend the PSNI for their action on Sunday night.

“I hope this acts as a warning to others and that there is no repeat of the behaviour over the weekend.”
