Resident fears over ‘ridiculous’ motorcyclists in North Lynn
A North Lynn parent with two children has expressed his concerns at an anti-social motorcyclists near his home.
Shaun O’Donnell, 52, of St Edmundsbury Road said the motorcyclists perform wheelies, speed along the road and create a racket three to five times a day.
He has expressed concerns for the safety of his children who are aged three and 15.
“If anyone was to walk in between two cars and this motorcyclist came around, someone is going to be hit or killed,” Mr O’Donnell said.
“You can’t keep your eyes on little ones all the time.
“I just think it’s absolutely ridiculous now.”
It comes after Mr O’Donnell had seen a previous Lynn News report in which police had issued a section 59 warning to a motorcyclist in North Lynn.
Mr O’Donnell believes this is connected to what he has experienced on Estuary Road and St Edmundsbury Road.
Lynn Police said on Wednesday, February 20: “Following complaints from residents in North Lynn, a male was issued a section 59 warning.
“Next time the motorbike is evidenced driving in an anti-social manner it will be seized.”
Mr O’Donnell added: “I have seen the same biker going around town doing wheelies.
“If I drove around in my car like that I would be arrested.
“They are using the road like a speedway track and you can hear them going through the gears.”
He claims he usually hears the motorcyclists between 3pm and 5pm as well as from 7am during the morning.
And he also told the Lynn News he has seen one motorcyclist going as fast as 60mph in a 30mph zone.
Mr O’Donnell continued: “I rode a motorcyclist myself for many years and it amazes me when you see young lads in their shorts and t-shirts on bikes.
“It would be like a cheese grater along their skin if they were to fall onto the road.”
The concerned resident said he has reported the issue to the police.
However, he said he has been unable to identify the numberplate of the motorbike he has seen because it is “not that visible”.
Norfolk Police has been contacted by the Lynn News this week and they said Lynn Police are looking into the issue.
“I did try to ring the police the other week but after about eight minutes waiting I hung up,” Mr O’Donell said.
“They have got CCTV cameras around here.”
Anyone with information about anti-social behaviour in the area or who may have seen anything should contact the police on 101.
