DROITWICH police issued 14 fines on Sunday to people who were breaking lockdown rules – including one to a nurse.
A large group of people were said to have met up to take part in street racing.
Officers said all the £200 fixed penalty notices were issued within one hour between Droitwich and Worcester.
Another car meet – thought to be the same group – also took place in Wythall.
A police spokesperson said: “Not only will we deal robustly with any traffic offences, we are in a national lockdown and those breaching COVID19 legislation can expect a £200 fine.”
