    Hopefully the order was served on the RIDER, not the bike as PCSO stated in the Tweet. Doesn't he know law doesn't apply to inanimate objects!

    They should go up by the Clock Tower in the evenings. Every night there are kiddies (often on L plates) revving their motor bikes on purpose, and burning up to the next island, then around and back, slowing down and reviving and screaming off again at every turn. I dont mind the noise from garbage trucks, skip deliveries, helicopters, road sweepers, trucks, or other traffic, they are mild in comparison, but the decibels from these kids on their motor bikes drown out everything else by a mile and has to be breaking the legal limit for noise pollution.
