From the Ham&High:

"Police are taking 'extremely seriously' the 'Wild West' scene of 'boy racers' around Alexandra Palace which has condemned some drivers’ actions as 'selfish beyond words'. Revving engines, aggressive driving, pavement parking, quadbike racing and overcrowding have been reported in Palace Gates Road, Station Road, Priory Road and streets in the vicinity of the palace in recent weeks. Ally Pally, which reopened some of its car parks on May 22 to combat rogue parking, says it is 'frustrated' by the 'lack of respect' shown by some drivers."

Perhaps taking advantange of the low traffic in recent weeks, boy racers have been getting bolder with their rallies. Now that traffic is returning to normal it is getting seriously dangerous, and the police are promising to increase evening patrols and will step up enforcement.
