Off-road vehicle nuisance is a problem that is affecting
the lives of many. We need your help to identify who is responsible
for riding the off-road vehicles & who owns them - so the
police can then take action, either by serving notices on the
riders or seizing the machines.
What are off-road vehicles?
- Moto Cross
- Trial and Enduro bikes
- Quad bikes
- Electric scooters
- Or any other mechanically propelled vehicle which is built for
use off-road and should not be used on public roads and pavements
or in public space
Don't let them get away with it!
- Often riders are not in control & have no riding
- They are a danger to themselves & the public
- They are not legal for the road - they have no lights/horns or
- They are often used for criminal activities.
What you can do?
There is no where in Merseyside where off-road vehicles can be
ridden legally without the permission of the landowner. So if you
see the vehicles in action on roads in St.Helens, or anywhere else
in Merseyside, report them immediately.
Information which is helpful to the police includes:
- Where & when it happened: dates, times &
- What the rider and vehicle looked like; descriptions &
names of anyone involved in possible

whether they are being used regularly in your area
