PARK BIKE BAN STIRS UP FUSS

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

THE com­mu­nity is in an up­roar — and di­vided — af­ter a photo of an al­leged Mt Druitt po­lice­man con­fis­cat­ing a mo­torised bike from a child was posted on Face­book.

Mt Druitt crime man­ager de­tec­tive In­spec­tor Dave God­dard clar­i­fied the con­fu­sion sur­round­ing mo­torised bikes.

He said it was il­le­gal for mo­tor­bikes to be rid­den in the area.

“They can’t ride them in the parks and streets,” Insp God­dard said. “We’re all for kids be­ing ac­tive but they can’t ride the bikes in the park.”
