356 Scramblers And Quad Bikes Have Been Seized Over The Past Two Years
356 scramblers and quad bikes have been seized over the past two years.
Justice Minister Helen McEntee says 102 were seized in the south of the country.
159 were recovered by the Gardaí in Dublin, and 45 in the north-west.
Fine Gael TD Neale Richmond says new laws are planned to make them illegal, in most circumstances:
“Bikes and scramblers have been plaguing neighbourhoods across the country, but particularly in Dublin over the past two years. We’ve seen a colossal amount of seizures. There have been a number of incidents – very dangerous. A number of people have been injured. And it’s something that really has been an absolute blight on the landscape. And it has forced the Gardaí to act so many times.”
