ESSEX Police are appealing for information to help identify a number of people riding motorbikes dangerously in the south and the west of the county.
The motorbikes have been captured on road safety cameras speeding, performing stunts such as wheelies, and driving dangerously in places such as Chipping Ongar, Epping, Hockley, Shenfield, and South Ockendon.
Officers are releasing images taken by these cameras as they have been activated.
Adam Pipe, Casualty Reduction Manager, said: “This kind of riding is dangerous and reckless.
“The way these motorbikes are being ridden presents a danger, not only to the riders, but to pedestrians and other road users.
“In some cases the riders are not wearing protective clothing meaning that should they have a crash, they risk suffering serious injuries.
“Safety cameras in South Road in South Ockendon, High Street in Chipping Ongar, Southend Road in Hockley, and Shenfield Road in Shenfield have been activated a number of times showing these are not one-off incidents.
“If you recognise any of the people pictured or their motorbikes, or have witnessed riding like this, I urge you to contact us.
“This type of riding is unacceptable and has no place on our roads. We will do everything we can to stamp it out.”
Anyone with any information about these riders or motorbikes is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the reference number attached.
