A BIKER faces having points put on his driving licence after riding a mini-motorbike on a highway.
Elland officers stopped the 22-year-old and found the biker had no insurance.
The bike was also unroadworthy.
The Elland man now faces court action – where magistrates could fine him and give him points on his driving licence.
And his bike was seized by the police.
Sgt Dean Maddocks of Calderdale’s Lower Valley police said: “Local residents have raised concerns over nuisance motorbikes in the Lower Valley and we will take positive action when we have the evidence to prove offences.
“These riders are a danger to themselves and other road users, and cause misery to residents when they ride on public footpaths and common land.
“The message I have to motorcyclists is do not take your bike out unless it is road legal and you have the necessary insurance in place.
“If you have an off-road bike, make sure you use it on private land with the full consent of the land owner.”
