Putting the ‘Brakes On’ scrambler bikes

by Jonathan Kearney

Knowsley Council is continuing to tackle the anti-social and illegal use of scrambler bikes and motorbikes as part of the Brakes On campaign.

Working with key partners including Merseyside Police and housing associations, the campaign is to encourage Knowsley communities to work together and put the Brakes On Scramblers by reporting where they are being stored.

The Brakes On campaign forms part of Knowsley Council’s action plan aimed at tackling the criminal and illegal use of scrambler bikes and motorbikes in our communities. The plan aims to pool the resources and powers available to all partners. This includes taking legal action against those responsible to alterations to our highways and greenspaces, the partnership can challenge and deter those who ride illegally on our streets and provide reassurance to our communities that everything is being done to create better and safer communities.
