Locals Frustrated With Engine-Revving ‘Racers’ In Coleraine

Numerous locals have taken to social media over the last week complaining about ‘little boy racers’ throughout the Greenhall Highway, Laurel Hill, Upper Captain Street, Dunhill Road and Carthall areas of Coleraine.

Speaking to Causeway Coast Community, a Coleraine father said: “More boy racers than ever are speeding past our home on the Greenhall Highway area, doing burnouts and putting children’s lives at risk. This happens from late afternoon until late evening. ”

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the man called on the PSNI to step up patrols in the area, in response to the groups of boy racers he says have turned it into a race-track.

Councillor William McCandless said   “Screeching tyres late at night, fast vehicles in the hands of inexperienced drivers and the potential for nasty accidents.

The noise that is being generated in the early hours of the morning particularly, is being caused by boy racers who see our street as race tracks for their enjoyment. It has got to STOP before a serious injury is caused and I am calling on PSNI Traffic and our local PSNI to take action.

This has been going on for months in various parts of Coleraine but I would request particular attention to Greenhall Highway and then running off into the Heights area.

It needs to be sorted to stop annoyance to the residents who are being subjected to this.”
