WARRINGTON Police are clamping down on cyclists who ride on the pavements in and around Stockton Heath from today (Saturday) following numerous complaints.
Warrington Police say they have had numerous complaints about Children/teenagers cycling on pavements aggressively around Stockton Heath Village.
One of the main complaints is kids wheelieing down London Road with no consideration for pedestrians or other vehicles on the road.
Due to the volume of complaints the village will be subject of cycle law enforcement over the coming weeks beginning today (Saturday).
Cheshire Police point out that cycling on pavements is an offence under Laws HA 1835 sect 72 & R(S)A sect 129.
Anybody stopped and checked riding on the pavement will be given advice before any tickets will be issued.
Parents, who have received emails via a police alert service, are being advised to warn their children about the imminent enforcement to prevent any tickets being issued and hopefully reduce the number of complaints received.
