MOTORISTS who drive around with music blasting out of their cars have been told to shut up.
Dewsbury police are poised to take action after getting complaints about cars with music blaring out of them.
The problem is particularly bad on Saturday afternoons.
Offending drivers are being sent letters urging them to turn the volume down.
But if they ignore the warnings, their cars could be seized.
Pc Colin Sykes, community beat officer for Dewsbury town centre, said: "We have had numerous complaints about this.
"Such anti-social behaviour can greatly upset both shoppers and people working in the area.
"It will not be tolerated."
He added: "We will be taking drivers' details. A letter will then be sent to them from Kirklees Council Noise and Pollution Department pointing out what could happen if this behaviour continues."
Police have powers under the Police Reform Act to seize vehicles and equipment if they think it is necessary.
Police have already used these powers in Bradford.
They seized a vehicle which, despite numerous warnings and fixed- penalty notices being issued to the driver, had more than 100 incidents logged regarding the driver's totally inconsiderate behaviour.
To get vehicles back the owners must pay £105, plus VAT, and a £12-a-day storage charge.
If it is not paid in 21 days the vehicle will be crushed.
