Police hunt ‘evasive’ bikers

A video of a gang of motorcyclists evading police in Bridgetown has gone viral on social media.

The approximately 80-second video shows over 20 bikers recklessly riding on motorcross bikes, commonly referred to as dirt bikes, in front of the First Citizens Bank, among pedestrians and motorists.

Here is a screenshot of some of the bikers who were caught on camera.

Details are still emerging but police have confirmed their involvement in the incident, which shows three motorcycle cops and one police van pursuing the cyclists in what appeared to be a high-speed chase.

Police spokesman Acting Inspector Roland Cobbler told Barbados TODAY in a statement that lawmen were “pursuing that matter actively and anybody who can provide information to assist the police in identifying these bikers can call the nearest police station”.

After watching the video he said: “From there you can see that the persons there are probably daring the police and are engaging the police, and that type of behaviour on our roads, we do intend to tolerate.”

This is not the first time that bikers have been caught on camera engaging in irresponsible behaviour on the roads, the most recent being last December 12.

Lawmen have also repeatedly warned about the dangers of bikers performing wheelies on the motorways.

      The funny thing is, that if Police did what was necessary to apprehend these nuisances,You, John Public,would be calling for their blood.

    The police could have radioed an all point bulletin,,,Stop and detain any scrambler riding cyclist, within a one mile radius of Bridgetown,,then with photo enchantment,, check licence plates against those in the madness,,,something must show up,,,,catch one,catch all
