Police will seize scrambler and mini moto-type bikes in a new crackdown following complaints about riders tearing around a disused quarry in Kinver.
Residents living near the site off Gibbet Lane have reported problems with riders causing a nuisance in the area.
Officers from Staffordshire Police said in recent weeks people had been accessing the quarry site to ride the bikes.
On one occasion police turned several men away from the site who were all in possession of off-road bikes and mopeds looking to ride around.
They were warned, if they were caught again in 12 months, their vehicles would be confiscated.
They are increasing patrols at the site over the coming weeks and will be stopping people driving or riding in an inconsiderate or careless manner.
Ch Insp Donna Gibbs, from South Staffordshire local policing team, said traditionally there is a rise in the number of people riding the bikes during the summer.
“The warmer weather and longer days are often accompanied by a rise in reports about vehicle-related anti-social behaviour.
“Reports can include people riding motorbikes and off-road vehicles in open spaces and vehicles congregating on car parks.
“Officers and PCSOs regularly patrol these areas on foot, and on bicycles, so they are able to catch people in the act,” she said.
Staffordshire county and Kinver parish councillor Brian Edwards said he welcomed the crackdown.
“It has been problem there for many years. I’m pleased that police are doing patrols there because it does cause a lot of noise nuissance for residents,” he added.
Ch Insp Gibbs added: “By issuing these motorists with a section 59 order it gives us the power to seize their vehicle if they are caught a second time.”
