Police issue ‘boy racer’ warning

POLICE issued a warning on social media on Sunday night following reports of ‘boy racers’ in the Newferry area between Ahoghill and Toome.

The PSNI Ballymena Facebook page said: ‘Folks we are getting quite a few reports of boy racers causing a nuisance in the Newferry area by making a lot of noise and doing donuts, disturbing the local residents.

‘I’m sure that nothing quite beats cruising a car park in your lowered, lime green 2003 Golf with this week’s girlfriend in the passenger seat while spinning your car in circles until you don’t know whether you are Arthur or Martha.

‘I’m sure you all look very cool and your parents are very proud.

‘But it is annoying a lot of people and if we catch you at it there will be a ticket with your name on it. And you’d better hope your car is roadworthy or else it’ll be coming with us.

‘Consider this your five minute warning,’ the message went.

Within an hour it had generated hundreds of comments.
