Surely currently, it is easy to stop boy racers especially if they are on quad bikes
In my day, we still did stupid things like this. Only we only had two wheels and there was no age limit on what CC bike you could ride.

I expect the other difference was we had police who knew every youth by name, with the added fear for the culprits, they also knew our parent and our address. They were real local Bobbies. When you went home, your father would give you a tongue lashing as well as informing the beat Bobby that you were one of the idiotic death-defying hooligans who had been causing a nuisance to other neighbours. Luckily, I am alive today because of the swift action of the then very powerful (no hands tied behind their backs) and 100 percent support from parents.
Give the police the powers they once had for cases such has these.

You inadvertently raised the key issue here - not so much the police but the parents of these marauding feral youths.
