Boy racers hold protest in Wellington
Sat, 23 Jun 2012 8:50a.m.
A boy racer protest near Wellington last night has caused little trouble for the police.
After a car was crushed this week by Police Minister Anne Tolley, a protest was organised on the Porirua Buy/Sell/Trade Facebook page.
The "cruze" from Porirua to Wellington was set to take place last night, but sources say there was actually low support within the boy racer community.
Police say there were no arrests made and no reports of trouble.
Nineteen-year-old Daniel Briant was the first victim of the car-crushing law when on Thursday his Nissan Laurel was crushed by police.
The protest was meant to be for Mr Briant after the crushing of his car sparked an outcry on Facebook.

These cruise protests are a good way for the Police to check for regsistration, wof and illegal modification breaches. Thanks boyracers for congregating so those checks can be done more efficiently.

They should not be given any time to strip there cars ! As soon as they are caught they should be taken and held and squashed. Don't even give them time to empty the boot or the glove box. An even harder line against these twits needs to be taken. Saddly I don't think it will hapen until some one in power has one of there family killed by the actions of these people.
