A nuisance scooter driver has had his scooter confiscated after police caught him without insurance.

On Sunday, police were called by residents on Limes Road complaining of a mini-moto being driven dangerously by youths.

Officers from the Selhurst Safer Neighbourhoods Team (SNT) went to the area in an unmarked police vehicle and within ten minutes saw a youth riding a mini-moto on the road, without a helmet on.

When they stopped the 17 year-old and checked the vehicle, it was also found to be without valid road tax or insurance and the rider was not in possession of a suitable driving license.

The 17-year-old youth riding the mini-moto was prosecuted for driving without a license and without valid insurance or road tax, while the vehicle was seized.

Sergeant Kenny Parker, from the Selhurst SNT, said: “This sort of antisocial behaviour is not acceptable and when we receive any reports like this, we’ll take appropriate action as we have done here.

“Mini-moto vehicles are subject to the same laws and rules that apply to other motor vehicles when they’re ridden on public highways. I would advise anyone who owns one to bear this in mind before taking it on the road.”

Karma! Serves the ignorant little muppets right. Let's hope their expensive little annoying toy ends up in a crusher somewhere.
