On Saturday, July 31, the Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit stopped a moped rider at Doe Lea.

He had travelled to buy a new moped and had forgot to bring a helmet with him – with the DRPU tweeting that, instead of buying one locally, he had “decided to risk it.”

The moped was confiscated by officers.

Officers caught him just as he was about to drive onto the M1 – and discovered that he also had no insurance or licence. The rider’s moped was subsequently seized.
