ANTI-social drivers in Inverclyde risk having their vehicles being impounded, police have warned.
Officers are using anti-social behaviour legislation to crack down on nuisance motorists following complaints from residents.
A motorist was stopped on Patrick Street, Greenock on Saturday afternoon and an anti-social behaviour notice issued against him and the vehicle after he accelerated harshly to induce backfire.
Sergeant Jason Logdson said: “If this vehicle or the driver is found to be driving in an anti-social manner again in the next 12 months, police will impound the vehicle.”
Other issues raised by members of the public include speeding and racing, loud engine revving and wheel-spinning.
Police are appealing for members of the public to report cars repeatedly being driven in an anti-social manner on 101.
