First published in News

A COMMUNITY crackdown on dangerous drivers has been held at Makkah Mosque.

The event to stamp out dangerous driving in Bolton was the third of a series of awareness days to be held in the town.

Police, firefighters, Bolton Council, and Bolton Council of Mosques joined forces to educate people about the consequences of driving irresponsibly.

The educational events were launched in the wake of two drivers being jailed after a horror crash in St Helens Road, Daubhill, where 11 people were injured in July last year.

The scheme was launched at Al Rahman Mosque in Randall Street, Daubhill, and has since taken part at other mosques in Bolton.

Makkah Mosque in Grecian Crescent, Great Lever, is the latest to host the event. Police quizzed motorists on their driving knowledge and told them how driving inconsiderately can result in your car being seized if you are stopped for a second time and a simulator was available for people to put their driving to the test and to see the impact of alcohol on a person’s driving.

The next event will be held at the car park of Noor Ul Islam Mosque in Prospect Street, Halliwell, on May 10, from 1.45pm. For details about the campaign contact 01204 363680.

They did get free driving lessons paid for by the tax payers in secret but once it came out in view of the public raised the roof it was scrapped & it only involved Muslim Males & no Women or anyone else.

I'm not making this up I turned left out of Deane church lane onto St Helens rd last week first time in years within three seconds of being on that road there was a foreign person flying up about 60 mph in a 30 zone about 11am plenty of other cars and people about. Its worse than Deane rd. Our police need to be policing those roads but of course our backward police force will see it as racist. We will have anarchy in thirty years.

TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOUR COMMENTS.
I WONDER HOW MANY HAVE A LICENSE, OR EVEN A FORGED ONE, OR HAD SOMEONE TAKE THEIR PRACTICAL AND THEORY TEST FOR THEM ?
(DID ANYONE SEE THAT EXPOSURE ON ITV LAST WEEK)
ST. HELENS ROAD AND DERBY STREET ARE FULL OF SPEEDERS, PARKING IN BUS LANES AND ON DOUBLE YELLOW LINES, STOPPING IN MIDDLE OF THE ROAD TO SHAKE HANDS WITH NO THOUGHT FOR ANYONE ELSE, EVEN PARKING THEIR CARS FULLY ON THE PAVEMENTS

Many in the community rave on about their prophet/leader who is all loving and all encompassing. If they respected him that much would they ignore his teachings and flagrantly disobey the laws of the land with no care for anyone, even their own teachers? A car is a lethal weapon in the hands of those who don't consider the consequences.

The community in question know they can break the law because the vehicles are not owned by them but leased to a person whose registered address is in Pakistan.

The authorities as soon as they see that they don't bother chasing it, however if more vehicles were impounded or clamped that would put the mockers on a lot of activity.

The laws of this land are not respected because Islam believes any Man made laws are false & only Allah & the book are the law. Sooner we wake up and see it the better & thank god we are starting too.

Did anyone notice that the effect of alcohol on driving was being demonstrated to mosque going muslims who are forbidden from drinking alcohol? A bit culturally insensitive is it not?

PMSL @ Jealous.
I can assure you I'm far from jealous. My comment is aimed at those in your community who drive dangerously and without thought or care for anyone else, Including those in your own community as recent accidents have proven. Many in your community are law abiding respectful and hard working people. As in all races and creeds (including white British) there are always a small minority who give their race/culture a bad name. I have never and will never tar everyone with the same brush as you have done.

Perhaps the GMP should use intelligence led policing? The group involved here are relatively easy to identify, and have been indentified, and are clearly causing a problem.

So GMP use some intelligence and make the roads safe for all.

Good grief you believe that Muslims don't drink? Oh and there is no gay sex in Muslim countries either!
