LOS ANGELES: He is reported to have upset several neighbours near his upscale Calabasas home earlier this year with his driving habits.

But just weeks after avoiding charges by a California court for allegedly spitting on a neighbour and driving recklessly, Justin Bieber also appears to have appeased some of the famous residents of his exclusive gated California enclave.

Bieber’s neighbour - former NFL star Eric Dickerson - who lives in the gated enclave - indicated that the star’s behaviour behind the wheel has improved.

‘Let’s just say, it’s gotten better,’ Dickerson said when approached by TMZ and asked whether Bieber had ‘toned things down.’  Justin’s alleged incident with fellow Calabasas neighbour - and former NFL player - Keyshawn Johnson is the stuff of legend among the usually low-key residents. On May 27, Keyshawn had just left a friend’s party with his young son when he allegedly spotted Justin driving his Ferrari at a dangerously high speed down the street and, after safely depositing his child at home, went after Justin in his Prius.–MO
