pushing a MX bike on road

My son bought a motocross bike from one of his friends, and while pushing it home, was stopped by a policeman, and given a producer for no road insurance, MOT, and road tax. Obviously he had none, and today recieved a summons. He had the bike siezed and consequently crushed. He had no intention of riding it on the road, and bought it to do MX track days. How are we fixed legally, please?

MX Bike

I believe bmwgs is correct, even if the bike is being 'pushed' on the road it needs to be fully legal.  The bike should have been transported on a van or trailer.  I think under the circumstances the officer has been somewhat harsh to report it rather than giving your son some words of advice but either way he'll now have to plead his case before the court.

I believe from my CBT, he should also be wearing a helmet which could also be another issue at court.

Thanks, the copper in question has pulled my son before, and is known as being a proper c*nt. Even the other coppers we've spoken to, say he's a twat.:mad:

I think

if you're pushing it they should let you off with a warning that it's not legal. But frankly who are you hurting? It may be within the letter of the law but I'm doubtful it's within it's spirit.
