On your bike – police warning over anti-social behaviour on the streets of Sale and Sale Moor…

By Peter Trollope at

Shop an illegal biker – that’s the message from the police to Sale and Sale Moor residents.

‘Over recent weeks we have seen an increase in the use of motorcycles & mopeds around Sale Moor and Sale. The majority of people are failing to display registration plates. On most occasions the riders are not wearing helmets or the correct safety clothing. This is causing concern for the safety of the public as well as the riders themselves,’ said a GMP spokesman.

“Due to the manner or of driving and the way the riders are dressed they more than likely do not have licenses or insurance for their vehicles. This is causing a negative impact on the community regarding the anti-social behaviour.

“Can we request if you witness these motorcycles causing anti-Social behaviour please inform us. Additionally, if you have any information about the riders or the location of these bikes, please assist us in taking these bikes off the streets of Trafford by calling us directly or contact Crime stoppers'” he added.

Any bikes seized will be destroyed by police

“If you are the riders, this needs to stop now! Rest assured we will catch you and your bikes will be seized. By doing this you are committing many different types of offences which when caught you will be prosecuted.”

Anyone with information please report to 101 or use GMP Webchat site at Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or visit is 100% anonymous.
