Police issue warnings to Cotgrave off-road bikers

Warning notices were issued by police to off-road motorcycle riders in Cotgrave.

Officers from Rushcliffe South Neighbourhood Policing Team were responding to reports of off-road motorbikes causing safety fears and causing anti-social behaviour in Cotgrave on Monday 27 February.

Police said:

‘Whilst on patrol officers have come across two riders committing offences under Section 34 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 – both riders were dealt with accordingly and have been issued warning notices under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act 2002, meaning that any repeat offences can see vehicles seized under the same act.

‘This incident forms part of an operation started last year by the Rushcliffe South Neighbourhood Policing Team to target off-road motorbikes committing offences and carrying out anti-social behaviour in and around Cotgrave, with these incidents to be continually monitored and addressed.

“Last year saw a large reduction in these incidents which was the result of a number of measures taken by Nottinghamshire Police, Rushcliffe Borough Council, Cotgrave Town Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.

Local officers will continue to patrol in the coming weeks to target this issue and members of the public are encouraged to continue reporting incidents involving motorbikes which are committing offences or participating in anti-social activity by calling 101 or 999.
