UNRULY quadbike riders in High Wycombe are making people’s lives a misery, with police calling for people’s help in catching those riding vehicles anti-socially.

Officers in the Micklefield and Totteridge areas say they are receiving reports of quad and motorbikes being ridden dangerously and putting residents and road users at risk.

Police say the majority of these vehicles are not legally allowed on the road, and that riders often lack licences and therefore have no insurance.

Yesterday, police seized a quad bike due to its driver not being insured.

Sergeant Mat Lloyd, neighbourhood sergeant for Micklefield, said: “The neighbourhood team is conducting an operation to tackle this issue. Officers will be using their powers to prosecute riders and seize bikes being ridden illegally or anti-socially.

“However, the anti-social nature of this behaviour is just one of our concerns, our primary concern is the danger that the riders, their passengers and other road users are put under every time a bike is ridden in this way.”

Officers say the riders are also putting themselves at risk by not wearing protective helmets or clothing.

Anyone with information about the riders or has knowledge about the location of illegal bikes should contact Thames Valley Police via 101.

Police insist all information will be in confidence and concerned residents can also provide information anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The problem here is that you see them about and contact the Police but by the time the police turn up (assuming they do), they've cleared off up the road.

What needs to happen is regular evening/night patrols along the roads linking Micklefield/Totterid
ge, the Police would soon come across them because any regular user of those routes does on a daily basis.

Deeds Grove has several of them as well; 2 stupidly loud dirt bikes (obviously without silencers) and one quad bike. All ridden around the block early hours and late at night.

Tempted to puncture the tyres myself....!

This has been a problem in Kingswood for years. The police can't catch them and even when I've photographed the culprits, the police don't do anything. Our ex-MP, dominic Grieve once attended a meeting where it was proposed by some do gooder to give them an area of woodland to ride in. There is now a BMX area in Kingswood, but it is full of idiots on scramblers.
There was a case a few years ago, where a horserider was thrown from her scared horse because of these idiots, but the police don't care until it happens to one of their own kids.
It doesn't help when the people at the Police call centre seem to have no knowledge of where Kingswood is (or even High Wycombe!)

I forgot to mention, that I reported a middle-aged man driving his quadbike through the woods a few months ago with a young child (about 5 years old) on the back, neither were wearing a helmet and I gave the police his quadbike no plate, but heard nothing back!
The police know who this trouble making family are in Micklefield, but seem powerless to do anything.
I agree with robinh, that regular patrols would soon sort this out. You can hear them a mile away so a concerted effort should rid us of them. Sometimes, people commute into Kingswood and park their white vans at the bottom of the Kingswood Road car park and ride around on scramblers, but the police still don't catch them!

Been reporting them to the police for more than six months...I've now given up. The speed it goes past my place on "The Hill" I can't see it's number plate... as for the noise and backfiring!!!

I think they know who these people are and it's way to much trouble to stop them... or they don't want to?

Can't figure out what one of these quads is doing at such times, late at night and 2 & 3 o'clock in the morning... must work some strange shifts???

Be great to get a few good nights sleep, perhaps when they can be bothered the bike will be crushed.

They know EXACTLY who some of them are! There's a house a few doors down from me, as soon as the dad leaves for his nightshift, the kids are out on the bike. I've told the police, they've discussed the powers to seize etc but yet the little bas****s are still riding round and this has been going on for months.

So many people reporting persistent riders with their addresses known to Police and nothing being done yet again. The Police and their friends in high places are too busy making false and empty promises and awarding themselves promotions and new titles.
There is absolutely no trust or any respect left in me for the Police and it really hurts me to say this finally. I have resisted for so long to say it but having been let down and never had a problem solved when risen, by this failed authority, it is very reasonable to say that the Thames Valley Police is not fit for any purpose.

If you have a licence, insurance and ride the thing with respect for your fellow human, then there's no real problem. Ride it like an idiot, illegally and without any regard for your or anyone else, then that's a different story.

Also odd that I've not heard them since lunchtime today...perhaps we should keep praying for rain so we can sleep at night?

I don't think it's just the rain that had the noise down this weekend on "The Hill"... be interesting to hear about it from other areas.

Both the quads were out a few times however not as much as a normal weekend for me.

Someone has posted a video up on facebook. Not sure where it was taken, but surely it can be used to track them down?
I hear them all the time booting down the road.

The user that posted it is called Mikee Sparrow. I thought you would be able to see it even if you weren't logged into facebook.
