One member of the public called police to report teenagers taking it in turns to race on two mini motos without helmets and almost colliding with a car.
Two days later a group of six boys were seen riding a mini moto and motorbike dangerously on pavements and along narrow alleyways.
Yesterday officers confiscated a scooter after a group of youngsters were reported driving dangerously in the car park of Morrison’s in Abbeydale and a number of near misses with customers.
PCSO Sylvia Lane said: “Put simply this constitutes dangerous driving – and once these overgrown boys are identified we will be sending traffic officers around to speak to them about their actions.
“As well as looking ridiculous they’re putting themselves and others in danger and causing real distress to local residents.
"We can and do confiscate vehicles that are unlicensed or if the driver is not insured. If the vehicle is being driven in anti-social manner then we can issue Section 59 warnings, which mean that if the riders are discovered committing a similar sort of offence in future, they can be arrested and their bikes confiscated.
"This has led to many bikes being seized in the past and crushed so we would urge riders to remember this and change their behaviour."
Residents are urged to call the new non-emergency number 101 if they recognise these men or want to report incidents.
