Street racing injunction review hearing next week
A review hearing to consider the interim injunction banning ‘street racing’, also known as ‘car cruising’, in the Black Country will take place next week.
The case management hearing will be held before Her Honour Judge Kelly at 10.30am on Wednesday 20 December at Birmingham District Registry, Civil Justice Centre, The Priory Courts, 33 Bull Street, Birmingham B4 6DS.

It covers the whole of the boroughs of Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall and anyone breaching it will be in contempt of court and could face penalties including imprisonment, a fine or an order to have their assets seized.
