A CAR and a quad bike have been seized by police and one rider has received a caution as part of a clampdown on nuisance vehicles in the Staveley area.

A quad bike was seized on Wednesday, February 8 on Fern Avenue, Staveley, from a 25-year-old man who had no insurance. The man was reported for summons to court for driving offences.

On Thursday, February 9, a BMW was seized on Works Road, Hollingwood from a 39-year-old man who had no driving licence. The man was also reported for summons to court for driving offences.

A 29-year-old man received a warning after allowing his children to ride mini-motorbikes on Brearley Park, New Whittington, on Sunday, February 12.

If he is caught using a car or motorbike to cause nuisance, alarm or distress again in the next 12 months police could seize the vehicle he is using.

Acting sergeant Kara Butler, who is responsible for neighbourhood policing in Staveley, said: “We hope this serves as a warning to those using bikes and cars illegally or to cause nuisance that we will use our powers to confiscate them.

“We will continue to take action against people flouting the law on our roads.”
