Main article content
Attendees making their way to a car meet in Deanshanger tomorrow (August 29) are being encouraged by police officers not to misuse the roads in the area or put other road users at risk.
Chief Inspector Tom Thompson, said: “We are aware of the car meet planned for tomorrow in Deanshanger and an increased police presence will be in the area as a result.
“Whilst this meet is perfectly legal and many meets of this kind go off without incident, we want to send a clear message to those attending tomorrow that the roads will be busy due to the bank holiday weekend and to therefore please drive with care.
“We have seen incidents in the past where people attending car meets have driven their vehicles around the area dangerously, causing collisions involving members of the public – we absolutely do not want that to happen tomorrow and anyone driving in a dangerous manner will be dealt with by officers.
“We will be working closely with Thames Valley Police in regards to this event and anyone in the area who is concerned by anything they see tomorrow is encouraged to contact us.”
