Suffering from nuisance motorists? Please report it!

That’s the message for residents across County Durham and Darlington as new powers mean officers can seize illegal off-road vehicles more easily.

The new Section 59 signs act as an automatic warning, meaning anyone found driving illegally will have their vehicle seized and have already proved effective with nine illegal vehicles including quad bikes and off-road bikes being taken off the streets in the last week alone.
