Off-road reg plate plea

1 of 1

An MP has added weight to the campaign to have all bikes registered following a collision between an off-road motorcyclist and a car.

Worsley MP Barbara Keeley has called for the registration of off-road bikes to be made compulsory and retrospective.

Mrs Keeley is reported as saying: “The police want to take action to deal with this issue and the tragedies have got to stop. If machines had to be registered the law would be easier to enforce.”

Keeley’s comments have come to light in the wake of an accident last week which saw an 18-year-old rider of an off-road motorcycle was in a collision with a Nissan Almera along Littleton Road in Kersal, Salford.

According to the driver of the car, the motorcyclist was doing a U-turn in the road when the collision occurred.

The unnamed youth suffered head injuries and is being treated at Salford’s Hope Hospital where his condition is described as critical.
