Tyre marks from late night burnouts are becoming common place at the district’s roads and intersections.
Selwyn police are liaising with the Christchurch-based police anti-social road user squad, Senior Sergeant Dean Harker said.
He said gatherings of boy racers were being held more often.
In a recent incident a boy racer was injured and found lying on a road at Springston during a large gathering of vehicles. Those who were there were uncooperative.
“When we arrived, he (the victim) was conscious and talking, he wasn’t too forthcoming (with information) either,” Harker said.
The incident at the Springston end of Ellesmere Junction Rd about 2.30am on February 21 was responded to by firefighters as a “car versus pedestrian” accident.
The injured person was taken to Christchurch Hospital by ambulance.
Harker urged any members of the public who may have seen anything to contact police. Police were following up on inquires and continuing to speak to people from the scene.
Harker said anyone who witnesses an incident should get registration plate numbers if possible, and let police know by phoning *555 or 105.
