Bedford Community PC Ryan Mitchel said: “We know nuisance driving is an issue for people in the town centre with dangerous, loud and speeding vehicles. That’s why we put on this targeted operation.

“We have been engaging with the community and trying to educate drivers, but there is also a need for enforcement. Our primary aim is to make our roads safer for everybody and we will continue to do everything we can to towards that end.”
