Most days there are off-road motorbikes driving around the town and through red traffic lights, also cars that are like the bikes have no road tax and no insurance or mots,
How long do the public have to endure these idiots, does it mean when someone is injured that action will be taken, maybe !!!
Come on police monitor the situation and deal with it.

Walking on the pavement in town a couple of day ago looking the other way a push bike come straight into me it hurt me ,but if I had been someone older it would have knocked them off their feet. Tredegar town needs serious policing at the moment itís like a speed track in the evenings and no one around to do anything about it.

The white and yellow plastic road bollards between the car park and Red Lion are knocked down and replaced regularly by the council. If you check the cctv ( lol ) you wiil see they are driven into deliberately at about 50mph every weekend.

On Wednesday late afternoon/early evening a lady was about to cross the road opposite Abbey vets she was pushing a child in a buggy, 3 motorbikes came across in front of the loft and proceeded to go across town. This lady had to pull her buggy backwards out of the way of these bike riders, she pulled the buggy so far back she was against the shop wall I have warned people about his situation on the general discussion forum. I have noticed this happening a lot in the late afternoons/early evenings. Cars/motorbikes drive aimlessly through town to the circle and back again. A very serious accident will happen soon. It is making me wonder are these vehicles insured or have they passed their driving tests because they do not act like they have. No one in their right mind would drive like they do.

I just wonder what the outcome would be if the police could pull a few of these vehicles over and have these drivers tested, they certainly do not drive responsibly. It is so sad to see if they have passed their tests, they have gained their independence just to throw it all away on a moment of stupid madness.

Another place to be monitored is St James Resevoir especially in the early hours of the morning. Residents have said they can hear cars racing up and down St James Hill. One car was heard last night and the sound of a very loud bang. Strange to see a small red car smashed up near the bus stop the next morning, makes you wonder if this was connected to the night before.

Just read on the Tredegar police site that a male was arrested for driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol yesterday. Well done!

Busy night for the police last night in the Gwent Shopping Centre and Vale Terrace, getting illegal cars off the roads of Tredegar. Excellent news - why should the rest of us pay insurance, tax and making sure our cars are safe with yearly MOT's.

Yes, good news indeed, but not only off the roads, but off the pavements, and green verges as well. These drivers have no pride or thoughts for other road users, or pedestrians.
