Heard on the local news last night (Linc and Yorks) that police and councils are clamping down on car meets in retail parks. This is due to the dangers of events that arent organised properly I.e that relevent services havent been informed i.e fire services.

I am assuming they mean biggish meets as the footage they showed was dozens of cars and people.

But it did say that they would be keeping checks on car parks in general to assure that no laws or safety laws were being broken.

Ahh well we should be OK on the safety front in Sheffield, cos Shifty is goin' straight to the pub..(and getting all the drinks in) ;)

On a serious note though, I think the plod are referring to the type of meets as shown on local TV recently where you get a load of prats donutting and handbrake turning up and down the carparks.

We seem to have more respect for our cars than that........... :blink2: :twisted: :mrgreen:

yeah, festival park stoke has been on midlands today a few times. basically people moan about the litter and noise and racing. for fucks sake thats what yound lads do, its more healthy than drinking/doing drugs and especially more healthy than drink/drugged driving. police need to prioritize.

yes thats what i said...its the biggish meets too...but the police have aske public and retailers to report any meets or gatherings.

Seems ooooo daft last bike meet i went to was in a village pub with over 500 bikes. The peeps living there thought it was great and even let us use there drives to park in!

well i've been goignt o meets/cruises in retail parks for a long time and the police are always about. if u treat the place and local people with respect then they re usually ok. we had a few hundred at one recently and as soon as the police turned up over half bailed....all they did was have a look round, admire some cars, take some video footage and leave us to it!!!

Makes me wounder why the twats do that some of the guys spend £££KKKssss on there cars then abuse the f..kers and some time even blow the engines up. :wallb: :wallb: :wallb: why not do ya car and take it to santa pod and prove ya moneys worth? in a safe organised place, and run your car correctly, does doing a donut prove anything to anyone, much better to say heres my car and it just done the quater mile in 15 seconds (or wot ever) you would get far more respect me thinks , to be fair the only time i push my car anywhere near its limits is on the rolling road, i have no intention to prove me self by everyone standing round saying thats the guy who lost it at the last meet or whoo thats the guy who blew his tyre up and then his engine went, wot the f..k are they doing. most of the meets are spoiled by mr escort, with his k/n and his xr3i wheels and his wrinkly window tint, doing a burn out while all his mates dent his bonnet (causing his fake turbo vents to fall off) as they jump on the front to stop him running over the on lookers, twats,

rant over lol
