Motorbikes targeted as part of Southampton crackdown

First published in News

MOPEDS and motorcycles will be targeted today as part of a crackdown on motorcycle mayhem blighting the city’s roads and nature spots.

Officers from the Sholing and Weston Safer Neighbourhood Team and the roads policing unit will be out stopping riders to inspect bikes. Any suspected of being derestricted or committing any other offence could lead to the bike being seized. This follows reports of motorcycle nuisance around the Southampton neighbourhoods, especially in the Sholing Valley and Millers Pond nature reserve.

There's some **** here in Thornhill riding an illegal "midi moto" with no lights, often no helmet, off-road, on road and no number plate, there also a number of kids riding mopeds round here with no lights or anything and no helmets.
