Bikers in Harlow are being warned about a new injunction that comes into force today banning them from taking part in unauthorised ride outs.

The town-wide injunction, which is believed to be the first of its kind, runs until 31 March 2017.

It was granted to the council in time to stop a planned ride out event set for today (21 May 2016).

The injunction bans groups of two or more people from taking part in unauthorised ride outs between 10am and 12midnight on any public land or public highway in Harlow. It covers ride outs involving both motor cycles and motor vehicles. Anyone breaking the injunction would be in contempt of court and may be sent to prison.

The injunction forbids the following activities as part of an unauthorised ride out:

Excessive noise.
Danger to other road users including pedestrians.
Damage or risk of damage to private property.
Any nuisance to other persons not participating in the unauthorised ride
Driving at excess speed.Driving in convoy.
Racing another motor vehicle.
Performing stunts.
Sounding horns.
Playing loud music.
Dropping litter.
Shouting or swearing at, threatening or otherwise intimidating others




Injunction notices are being posted on 'hotspots' around Harlow

Nuisance particularly from the illegal riding of motorbikes is blighting people's quality of life in Harlow and the Council will not stand by and do nothing.

It is becoming an increasing problem, not just in Harlow but other areas in the country, and now we are approaching the warmer months we want to put deterrents into action.

The injunction is one of a number of measures the Council working with the Police has in place to target the issue of nuisance bikes.

Oh dear.....

Have looked up some more info - seems the minority have spoiled things for everyone else. I can see other Councils potentially jumping on the bandwagon though. Let's hope Dorset Council's appreciate how much support we give to the economy (for example as at the Quay).

Alf - do you think we need to be concerned?

Hi Thunder Thighs,

As you know I work with Weymouth Council and they do not find Bikes a problem, I'm sure they like the money we all spend when we visit the town.

Having said that it only takes few to upset the apple cart.
