Bike Insurance - Police seize 'ASBO' motorbike - 29/12/2008

A motorbike which was used to carry out anti-social behaviour was last week confiscated by police.

The action followed pre-Christmas dedicated patrols and the vehicle was seized because the rider had no bike insurance, in addition to causing nuisance on the Barrowcliff estate, reports said.

A spokesman for the North Yorkshire police was reported as saying that they had a clear message for those responsible for ASBO.

Police, he said, would work with partner agencies to make sure those involved in crime and ASBO were targeted befere and after committing offences, and even after being sentenced so that they could be made to pay their debt to society.

In another development, a man who was found testing a motorbike considered ‘unsafe’ has been fined £100.

The man, who pleaded guilty to using a motorcycle in a condition that was likely to cause danger of injury and having no bike insurance, was also ordered to pay £70 costs and a £15 surcharge.

His licence was, in addition, endorsed with eight penalty points.
