Threat of anti-social bikers in Solihull sparks council warning

Solihull Editorial 21st Jun, 2019   0

THE THREAT of anti-social bikers in Solihull has sparked a council warning.

With the weather warming up, Solihull Council and police are reminding residents of previous instances of people driving motorbikes, scramblers and quads recklessly over the borough’s parks and open spaces.

They say this is a nuisance and danger to others – and should be reported so perpetrators can be brought to justice.

Cabinet member for safer and stronger communities Councillor Alison Rolf said: “We want people to get out and about this summer and enjoy the beautiful parks we have in Solihull.




“Unfortunately, despite having a borough-wide ban on motor vehicle racing which includes off-road bikes, some people choose to ignore it.

“When this does happen, we need local residents to tell us so that we can continue to take action.


“Please share descriptions of the bikes such as colour and make/model, and details of the riders.

“Any information about where they may be stored, plus photos and videos are also really useful.”

Anyone who witnesses anti-social behaviour (ASB) should call the ASB hotline on 0121 717 1500, the police on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

People can also email [email protected] or go to https://www.west-midlands.police.uk/your-options/illegal-road-bikes-and-mini-motos to report any issues.
