In an effort to deter anti-social driving in the Fairhill road area of Cookstown, Mid Ulster Policing and Community Safety Partnership, the PSNI, Mid Ulster District Council and Transport NI have been working together on a range of initiatives.
Cllr Frances Burton, Chair of Mid Ulster PCSP said: “We are very keen to resolve the problems that residents in the Fairhill area are encountering. We are working in partnership with key stakeholders and residents to find potential solutions to the problems caused by anti-social driving and, hopefully, this campaign will help to improve the quality of life of the residents in the Fairhill area.”
PSNI Inspector Daniel Walsh commented, “In response to concerns raised by residents regarding vehicle noise and speeding during unsocial hours, we are currently running the ‘Fair Warning for Fairhill’ campaign to raise awareness of the nuisance caused by anti-social driving.”
“The Neighbourhood Policing Team Officers have been distributing leaflets reminding drivers to show respect and consideration for residents. As well as advising drivers that the police have the power to seize vehicles that are causing alarm, distress or nuisance.”
A number of large ‘Fair Warning for Fairhill’ posters have been erected in the area to emphasize this point.
