MSP Gil Paterson is urging constituents to report bikers causing chaos on roads with off-road
motorbikes to the police.
They are putting their own and members of the public’s lives at risk with the hazardous stunts and
racing around streets.
Police are relying on more members of the public calling 101 to report incidents, the
identities of the bikers and where they keep their bikes.
Mr Paterson, MSP for Clydebank and Milngavie, said:
“I have been in touch with constituents and the police over the matter of dirt bikers causing chaos
on the streets in Faifley and beyond, and I am seeking to highlight this to the public to help catch
“It is only a matter of time before an innocent member of the public or the bikers themselves are
killed in a horrific accident by their dangerous driving in the streets.
“Not only do they pose a risk to life, but they are causing havoc against residents who have to
endure the noise and disorder this driving causes.
“While I am glad to be aware of the problems, the first port of call should be the police – not housing associations, councillors or parliamentary offices, which has often been the case.”
