A DISPERSAL order has been put in place in Harlow in response to information they have received about an unauthorised car cruise.
It was put in place at 5.13pm, Saturday 9 February, and will run until 5.13pm on Monday 11 February.
It covers the area shown in the map attached, including Harlow town, the A414 and A1169, Edinburgh Way, Elizabeth Way, and Junction 7 of the M11.
Inspector Terry Fisher said: “Previous events have caused significant distress to residents and other road users.
“This has included concerns about the manner of driving, noise from car exhausts and engines and loud music into the early hours.
“Our roads policing and community policing teams will be patrolling the town and anyone planning on attending the event will be turned away, so don’t waste a journey in coming to Harlow this weekend.
“We will also use automatic number plate recognition cameras and CCTV to help us identify anyone who commits road traffic offences and take action against those responsible.”
The dispersal order gives officers the power to order people causing anti-social behaviour to leave these areas.
It is a criminal offence to breach a direction given under a dispersal order and in the worst cases this can result in a criminal conviction punishable by up to six months imprisonment or a fine of up to £5,000.
