Individuals driving quad bikes, involved in anti-social behaviour, have been brought to the attention of police.
The behaviour was reported in the vicinity of Slaughtmanus Road / Loughermore, Co. Derry.
In a brief post on social media, a spokesperson for Police Derry City & Strabane: “Police have been made aware of people being involved in anti-social behaviour, driving quad bikes in the vicinity of Slaughtmanus Road / Loughermore.”
“Be aware if you are stopped by police and your documents are not in order and/or you are involved in anti-social behaviour using your quad, it could potentially be seized.”
The term anti-social behaviour (ASB) is used to describe a wide range of “problematic and troublesome behaviours”. These include excessive noise, graffiti, littering and disputes with neighbours. The PSNI notes that some types of ASB are regarded as a criminal offence.
A risk to life, the use of threat of violence, or injury or damage being caused would be considered an emergency situation, and police will attend.
Anti-social behaviour can happen at any time. However, the PSNI said it tends to see an increase in reports at key times throughout the year including the summer and Halloween.
