London starts issuing fines to drivers who rev their engines

By Faiming_low on 12 Dec 2015 in Other News

Attached Image Boyracers and rich foreigners who misbehave on London's roads will be facing fines of up to £1,000 (S$2,140) according to Carscoops. The recently imposed fine has been introduced as many local residents have made their anger known throughout the years as wealthy Middle Easterners have been flooding London's street with their custom luxury cars and supercars.

Passed by the local council of Kensignton and Chelsea, the law states that local drivers can no longer rev their engines, race on the streets, accelerate rapidly, cause obstructions, sound their horns or perform 'stunts'. They are not allowed to leave the engine running of a stationary car too.

As many of the motorists being targeted by the order are foreign residents, the council has the power to contact their local embassy to enforce the fines with the possibility of further action being taken with their local driving authorities.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Good to see that such stupidity is not restricted to Singapore.

 

I mean stupidity on the part of the gahmen and police agencies, of course.

We should target bikers who like to rev their engines @ pedestrian crossings.

 

Bloody irritating.
