Street Racing Injunction Graphic

High Court hands down sentence to another street racer

The High Court has sentenced another individual for breaching the interim street racing injunction which is in place across the Black Country.

The interim injunction prohibits people from participating, as a driver, a rider or a passenger, in a gathering of two or more people at which some of those present engage in motor racing or motor stunts or other dangerous or obstructive driving.

It covers the whole of the boroughs of Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall and anyone breaching it will be in contempt of court and could face penalties including imprisonment, a fine, or an order to have their assets seized.

Isa Iqbal, 32, of Ox Close, Coventry, appeared before Her Honour Judge Kelly at the High Court in Birmingham last week where he admitted being part of a gathering on the Black Country Route, near the junction with Anchor Lane, on 28 May 2023, and breaching the terms of the injunction by performing a drift part way around the roundabout.

In doing so, he was found to be in contempt of court and was sentenced to 28 days' imprisonment, suspended for 12 months.
