Birmingham street cruising injunction

About the street cruising injunction

At Birmingham High Court on 27 February 2024, a High Court order banning street cruising across Birmingham was granted to 彩霸王论坛.

A full three-year injunction is now in place until 27 February 2027, replacing an interim order made in December 2022.

The final order prohibits drivers, riders or passengers from participating in a street cruise anywhere in Birmingham, and now includes organisers, promoters and spectators.

As a result of the injunction any driver, rider, or passenger breaching the order could:

  • be arrested immediately
  • face up to two years in prison
  • receive a fine,
  • have their assets seized

Any organiser, promoter or spectator breaching the order could:

  • be summonsed to court
  • face up to two years in prison
  • receive a fine
  • have their assets seized.

The court also granted an application led by Wolverhampton City Council on behalf of local authorities in the Black Country.

Prosecutions resulting from the injunction

From December 2022 to end of June 2024, 13 street cruisers were successfully prosecuted. They received sentences ranging from 14 to 46 days imprisonment (suspended for 12 months) and were ordered to pay costs of between £1,000 and £2,430.
