Carnoustie residents say they’re being left “petrified” and “fed-up” as drivers race their cars up and down a quiet town street.
Several locals told the Tele of their torment at anti-social drivers who gather close to the town’s golf course late at night.
It’s claimed that vehicles gather on what they call the “black slab”, at Links Parade, after 10.30pm.
As well as revving engines and skidding around the car park, residents say that racing up and down the road is commonplace.
Lynne Cree, 56, says that over the last few months, the noise and disruption has become unbearable.
She said: “The noise has continued to get worse and worse.
“It is so irritating because on a nice night we have to close our balcony doors as the noise is deafening.
“It is hard for us to enjoy the great views that we have. I am just so fed-up with it all.”
Lynne also described how, even though police are quick at responding to calls, it hasn’t deterred the drivers.
She added: “The police come, speak to them and they leave but it is not long until they return.
“I’m scared because if it is not brought under control someone is going to get hurt.”
Another resident, who didn’t want to be named to protect her own safety, described her fear when coming home from work.
She said: “I often work late in a care home and have to walk under the nearby bridge to get home.
“I am petrified that one day I will be a victim of their recklessness.”
She went on to say that her whole family have been woken up at various times through the night and how the disruption seems to be never-ending.
“My son loves to go out on his scooter, but I won’t let him go unless I can walk him across the road first,” she added.
“I’m just so frightened that he will get knocked down.”
Carnoustie councillor Helen Oswald said: “I think it is outrageous if people are doing this.
“It would be good if the police could attend the scene when they are called.”
Police Scotland’s Tayside Division had not responded at the time of going to press.
