Reports of crimes involving motorcycles, mopeds and scooters are clearly a concern. The Government has been determined to ensure that everything was being done to support police efforts to tackle this threat. That is why we brought the police, industry, local government, civil society groups and others together to see what more could be done to prevent offending and keep the public safe.

This work sits alongside the Government’s consultation on police pursuits, which seeks to give police greater confidence to pursue suspects and will help tackle these crimes. The consultation closed on 13 August and we will set out the next steps shortly.
