TEARAWAY youths are risking lives by racing each other on dangerous roads.
Residents on Bostock Road, Bostock, say 'boy racers' are racing around a circuit of roads through Winsford, Bostock and Stanthorne.
There have been a number of fatal crashes in the area and residents and police said it is only a matter of time before there is another.
Residents are frightened to come out of their homes at night and have stopped walking their dogs for the fear of being knocked down.
Peter Bannister, of Bostock Road, said: 'Four people have been killed on that road in six months. These boy racers fly along Stanthorne and the industrial estate.
'They race to see who can do the lap the fastest, well somebody is going to have an accident. My wife has stopped walking the dogs at night because of the dangerous racers. You hear them coming up the road with music blasting out.'
Sgt Ian Wood, of the Winsford's police Community Action Team, said the police are aware of youths congregation on Mor-
risons car park and racing each other. No prosecutions have taken place because nobody has been caught exceeding the 60mph speed limit.
He said: 'It is only a matter of time before somebody gets killed. Inexperienced young people in cars combined with lack of ability and inexperience to go at high speed will result in tragic deaths.
'Their perceived ability exceeds their actual ability to drive safely. They will drive recklessly, at high speeds in places, in excess of 60 or 70mph and there will be an accident.'
