Every year, wealthy luxury owners arrive in London from the Middle East with their collection of flash supercars. On a number of occasions, the foreign supercars have been driven dangerously around the affluent residential streets, angering locals who are kept awake by the sound of revving engines3.

Last year, following numerous complaints, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea introduced a Public Spaces Protection Order4 in Knightsbridge. Motorists are now banned from revving their engine, rapidly accelerating, racing, performing stunts, sounding horns or causing obstructions. They are also prohibited from leaving the engine of a stationary car running.

Over the past three weeks, seven drivers have been handed fixed penalty notices.

Council leader Cllr Nick Paget-Brown said: “It’s too early yet to judge the success of the PSPO but the police and the council will continue to ticket drivers who breach it until the message gets through that our residents are not to be disturbed by supercars.”
