Thurrock Council and Essex Police look to tackle nuisance motorcyclists

They have targeted well-known trouble areas to prevent bikes and quad bikes from accessing them

Thurrock Council and Essex Police are teaming up to help combat nuisance motorcyclists in the area. 

Nuisance drivers are associated with issues such as street racing which can put people in danger, cause traffic problems and lead to noise pollution. 

The council and police will combine their resources to target known trouble-spots and prevent quad and motor bikers from gaining access to public land. 

They will also ensure patrols take place at those locations according to new report that will go before the Cleaner Greener Safer Overview and Scrutiny Committee next week. 

Leader of Thurrock Council, Cllr Rob Gledhill, said: “We have already carried out successful joint operations to seize motorcycles and quad bikes which were illegally stored in council garages without permission as well as targeting organised illegal events.

“We will now build on that through the development of a pilot which will hopefully see police officers and the council using various tactics to build up evidence as well as take direct action to stop this antisocial and dangerous activity. It is early days and a business case is being made, but this demonstrates both organisations’ commitment to tackling this issue.

“Residents will have a key role to play in this. By reporting incidences they help us to target our resources at the areas where we know they will have the greatest impact in helping to crack down on this issue which negatively affects many of our residents. The best way to report these issues is by calling 101 or using Essex Police’s Digital 101 service to report online.”

Chief Inspector Mark Barber, Essex Police, said, “We welcome opportunities allowing us to work with all our partners and Thurrock Council – tackling issues as one team reaps rewards not just for us, but for our residents.

“We have already seen a reduction in incidents of nuisance vehicles, but we will continue to focus our efforts to drive down and reduce anti-social behaviour even more.”
