Welwyn Hatfield police officers were out patrolling Moneyhole car park last night in a bid to tackle antisocial behaviour.
Herts Police last week made the issue a “policing priority” after numerous complaints about boy racers motoring around the area during the evenings.
Several residents dismissed the move, but officers patrolling the area yesterday evening came across three vehicles, all of which swiftly left the car park after spotting them.
Wel/Hat North Police tweeted: “Perfect timing. Vehicle pulls into Moneyhole, spots the police car and funnily enough disappears again. Right place, right time.”
Officers then tweeted again: “Two more just arrived and also done the same. Hopefully a peaceful evening for nearby residents!”
Panshanger borough councillor Terry Mitchinson previously revealed the local authority has been asked to investigate possible measures to tackle the problem.
Anyone who witnesses the antisocial behaviour is asked to contact police via non-emergency number 101, or report it online at www.herts.police.uk/report.
