The Skidz Motorbike Workshop that was set up on 2nd March 2010 to help young people "at risk" of becoming involved in Anti-social behaviour was sucessfully launched. With only a small number of attendees, it is highly dedicated to seeing these young people strive to learn a positive new skill and engage with others. Following this, there has been a soar of responses from other young people wishing to attend following courses. The 6 week course, which is funded by Chiltern District Council says its very keen to get involved more.

Clampdown on nuisance bikers

Aug 10 2010 By Jack Abell

POLICE in Chalfont St Peter and St Giles are clamping down on youngsters who bother residents by riding motorbikes around fields in the villages.

For many months, the two villages have seen an increase in anti-social behaviour from youths riding bikes late at night and at the weekends.

Police have been working with Chiltern District Council (CDC), Chalfont St Peter Youth Centre and the Motor Project Ltd (SKIDZ), which aims to point out to youngsters the dangers of motorbikes.

Since August last year, PCSO Izzy Brennan has been working alongside SKIDZ in an attempt to reduce anti-social behaviour in the community.
PCSO Brennan identified young people between the ages of 13-and-19-years-old, who had a keen interest in motorbikes and vehicle maintenance to attend a six week course, fully funded by CDC.

The course showed the youngsters how to service, build and ride a motorcycle, and was aimed at keeping them off the streets, and teaching them responsibility.

PCSO Brennan said: "All riders that use the public highway to access any land used for off road riding must be 17 or over, the rider must wear a suitable safety helmet, be registered with the DVLA, have road tax, insurance and a driving licence that authorises the use of that vehicle. This legislation also includes pushing the vehicle on the road or footpath with the engine off.

"If any parents or guardian knowingly lets their child commit any of the above offences, relating to illegal riding, they may face prosecution.
"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped to get the project off the ground and helped to make it such a success."
