These teenagers keep riding these loud scooter bikes, or motor bikes or whatever theyre called, up and down our side turning most days. Not only is it loud and very annoying, and also we cant have windows open as stinks of petrol. The police are no hope, last time took them over an hour to get here and the riders were gone then. They use our road like a speedway ralley. When neighbours told them to go, they ignore it and continue to ride up and down. well you get my meaning. There is no respect anymore. The law states to not taken into own hands in situations but they dont have to live with it and they are not there for people either anymore when needed, they dont have to live with this, we do. Even at council meetings nothing much is done but just talk..
Definitely keep reporting it to the Police There have been quite a few phone snatches around Greenland Dock and Canada Water by idiots on scooters so they should be interested. If they’re not wearing helmets then hopefully cctv is getting them. We had the same problem in our quiet road and without wishing to jinx things it seems to have stopped but no doubt they’ll be back. These scooters are stolen and there was a big ride out in central London from genuine motorcyclists at the weekend to protest about the Police not taking bike theft seriously. Unfortunately with a limited budget the Police can’t always act, but with these mobile phone snatches and acid attacks it does seem like things are changing, I’ve seen a few recent articles where the Police have managed to catch up with them.
Its a waste of time calling police, only number have access to now is the 101 number and thats a waste of space, I have waited 45mins before on the 101 number getting hold of no one. Just an answer service, you cant ring police stations no more either to get them out quickly before the biker riders leave, so that just leaves 999 number then. And that is only for emergencies. Two police stations have closed down where we are to.
