Antisocial behaviour is persistently acting in a way that causes harassment, alarm or distress to other people (Citizens Advice Scotland).
Antisocial behaviour includes behaviour that causes harm to:
- an individual, like threatening language or aggressive behaviour
- the community, like noise pollution, drunken behaviour or drug taking
- the environment, like graffiti, vandalism or fly-posting.
Examples of antisocial behaviour include:
- playing loud music at night
- misusing fireworks
- having an animal which causes problems such as fouling or barking
- aggressive and threatening behaviour in bars or similar areas
- driving in an inconsiderate or careless way.
