HASTINGS police are again appealing for public help to get illegal motorised bikes off the streets.
Acting Sergeant Andrew Ross said public assistance earlier this year had helped get 14 illegal bikes impounded, but more were out there.
“Many of the riders are not skilled, and the bikes are an accident waiting to happen,” he said.
“We know they are riding around the area but we really need public assistance to know where they are located.
“We’d also like to thank the public for the help they provided last time.”
Most of the bikes are unregistered trail bikes or monkey bikes, usually driven by unlicensed riders.
“We would say to the community that anyone who notices these riders in an area to call us and we will investigate,” Acting Sergeant Ross said.
Anyone who can assist police track down the illegal motorised bikes should phone Hastings Police station on 59707800.
