Police will be cracking down on people who disregard the law
A crackdown on young, anti-social drivers in West Sussex will see police using all their powers to deter bad behaviour and seize vehicles.

Action will tackle law breakers, uninsured drivers, and anti-social scooter riders, particularly in the towns of Worthing and Shoreham.

Sussex Police will also target vehicles that have been modified illegally, which includes heavily tinted windows.

Officers want reports of vehicles habitually driven anti-socially.

The police operation will also try to "educate them about their vulnerability and for some, their anti-social driver behaviour", Insp Phil Nicholas said.

According to the force, young drivers aged between 17 and 24 make up a small percentage of drivers, but have a high percentage of casualties.
