    Q476: There are kids on quad bikes/motorcycles riding up and down on the field near to where I live and it is very annoying - what can be done?

    If the land is council owned then it is unlikely that they will have given permission for the youths to ride their quad bikes on it. If the youths are appearing on a regular basis then contact your local Neighbourhood Policing Team via 101.

    The police have a number of powers to deal with the use of such vehicles, these include the seizure of the vehicle under section 165A of the Road Traffic Act 1988 (Power to seize vehicles driven without a licence or insurance) or section 59 of the Police Reform Act 2002 (seizure of vehicles used in manner causing alarm, distress or annoyance).
