Nuisance motorbikes seized
On Wednesday the 12th of September 2012, the public reported a quad motor bike being ridden around the canal footpath, near to Donnithorne Avenue Nuneaton in an Anti Social manner. Due to the residents reporting this, officers attended and a small quad bike was located, stopped and seized.
On Tuesday 25th of September 2012, the Police had a report of a moped being ridden erratically, in Clarkson Close, Nuneaton. The bike was being ridden fast and dangerously, on the pavement and cut through bollards there to prevent vehicles doing this, due to the swift response of the Nuneaton Safer Neighbourhoods Team South, Beat manager PC Paul Painter and PCSO Angie Gavin. On checking the rider, he had already got a Section 59 Warning under the Police reform Act 2002, so hence his moped was seized from him and recovered.
PC Paul Painter said, this was another incident of Anti Social Behaviour which was dealt with in a positive manner. Many new drivers or riders are unaware that if their actions are reported and they are traced, warnings and seizures can take place. This is not just to reduce Anti Social behaviour but to protect other road users from harm and educate young vehicle owners of their actions.
Further nuisance motorcycles have been sized in Aviemore Close, Nuneaton following reports to both Warwickshire Police and through the ‘dob em in’ website on www.warwickshire.gov.uk/dobemin.
