Both of the Mercedes drivers, and an Audi driver, have become the first to be prosecuted. They have been found guilty of breaching a public spaces protection order (PSPO) by creating a nuisance with their cars in Knightsbridge.
The order came in after the council was said to be receiving too many complaints about the high-powered cars being driven “in a reckless and aggressive manner” over the summer.
The owners were only given fines of a few hundred pounds – £440, £470 and £295 – which is almost nothing compared to the price of their cars.
Following the verdict, Cllr Tim Ahern said: “We have been trying to combat the nuisance of antisocial driving around Knightsbridge for some time and this is why we introduced the PSPO in the first place.
“The result here sends out a clear message that we will pursue people who break the rules. I would remind everyone coming to the area to enjoy the many shops but remember it is also a residential area.”
