The consequences

op_meteor_bike_markingAnyone caught riding illegally could face:

  • Prosecution – leading to disqualification from driving, a fine or even imprisonment.
  • Your vehicle seized and potentially crushed if ownership and insurance cannot be proved
  • Civil Action – including ASBOs
  • Police will also pursue you for offences committed as part of this behaviour, such as theft or burglary

What about those not wearing helmets?

Police will endeavour to pursue those riding in a dangerous or anti-social manner. As with any incident, we always assess the level of threat, harm and risk this poses to the wider public, and as such a pursuit can be called off if it is deemed too dangerous.

The police DO have powers to deal with off-road biking and are also carrying out disruptive tactics to stop those involved, using other areas of criminality we are aware that they are involved in.
