Gangs of people using estate at night to race cars.

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 13:32, Mon 10 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1654629.

In Cronin Courtyard, during evenings and at weekends, gangs of people are racing their cars around the courtyard which is leaving huge lumps of tyres and debris on the roads, to the point where it is dangerous for other drivers. As they are using this as a place to 'hang out' they are also leaving empty bottles of alcohol and non-alcoholic drinks, along with rubbish at the front of our workplace and we are then having to clear it away. We have reported it to our landlord but as he explained the roads are adopted and therefore the responsibility of the council.
