An Ashfield police spokesman speaking after the patrol on Sunday, March 24, said: "Although no bike seizures on this occasion, Section 59 Warning notices are to be issued to riders stopped by the police, as a first offence, if they then continue to ignore this vehicles will then be seized and riders/ owners prosecuted.

"Just a reminder that it is an offence under Section 34 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 provides the offence of driving a mechanically propelled vehicle without lawful authority on common land, moorland or land not forming part of a road, or on any road which is a footpath, bridleway or restricted byway."
