Adoption of moving traffic contravention enforcement powers in Dudley

We are currently consulting residents about new traffic enforcement powers.

Last year the government announced that local authorities in England could apply to get new powers to enforce moving traffic offences under Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004.

We would like to apply to the Secretary of State for these new powers. It will mean we will be able to enforce moving traffic contraventions.

Car cruising injunction

An interim injunction banning ‘street racing’, also known as ‘car cruising’, will be in force from 12.01am on 24 December 2022.

It forbids anyone who is a driver, rider or passenger in or on a motor vehicle to participate between the hours of 3pm and 7am in a gathering of two or more persons within the Black Country area at which some of those present engage in motor racing or motor stunts or other dangerous or obstructive driving.
