A teenage boy has been warned about driving dangerously in St Albans.
The 16-year-old was given a Section 59 because he was driving in an anti-social way at Oaklands College.
Section 59 orders can be handed out when driving causes harassment, alarm, or distress - for example an off-road motorbike driven on land without permission.
It is attached to both the driver and the vehicle.
If the teen is caught in England and Wales driving any vehicle, or the vehicle is driven by anyone, the police can seize it. If the driver does not pay to get it back within two weeks, it could be crushed.

The order lasts for a year.
PCSO Chris Stokes from the St Albans Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Section 59 warnings are an effective resource available to us which can have an immediate response, it also helps in both short term and long term policing to reduce the amount of vehicle related anti-social behaviour in an area.”
