A teenager whose moped was being ridden in an anti-social manner in Stevenage has had his bike seized by police.
The bike, which belongs to a 16-year-old boy, was ridden illegally in the town at 3.10pm on Wednesday, October 7.
Stevenage Safer Neighbourhood Team PC Mark Williams said: “There is a history of anti-social behaviour in the Shephall area and we are working hard to address it. The misuse of mopeds or cars will not be tolerated and we will not hesitate to seize these vehicles if they are being used in an anti-social manner.”
The bike was seized under section 165a of the Road Traffic Act – for driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
The action was taken after police received reports from people in the Shephall area about an increase in anti-social behaviour.
