    Motor caution: police are raising awareness of dangerous driving by bike riders


Bike stunts on public roads are dangerous and could cause crashes, police have warned.

A police spokesman said: “Offenders caught in the act or subsequently identified can expect to be brought before the courts and charged with riding in a dangerous manner, among other relevant traffic offences.”

The reminder came after a video posted on social media showed a man doing a wheelie on his motorcycle for a considerable distance, including navigating a roundabout.

Another person, apparently on or in a separate vehicle, filmed the events. Police have appealed for witnesses.
