Motorbike noise hell 'has to stop'

First published in News

UNBEARABLE noise is blighting the lives of villagers as motoryclists race up and down a road in an ongoing weekly "rally".

Residents have been tormented for years by noisy motorbikes using Cox's Hill as a throughroute.

It is thought the riders are travelling to the weekly meet in Great Bentley, an event that has been ongoing for more than a decade.

But Lawford residents say enough is enough and have called on police to clampdown on the problem.

Edwina Noone, of Lawford Place, said: "The noise is deafening, it's scarey and it's incredibly dangerous.

Adam Pipe, Essex Police's casualty reduction manager, said he wanted to reassure residents work is ongoing to promote safe and responsible riding across the county.

"You might not see us because we are on plain motorbikes as well as marked ones, but we have video recording and take a hard line on poor riding behaviour," he said.

Put some ear plugs in if you don't like the noise, the world doesn't have to stop because some moaning old codger wants to live in silence!

its only for a few weeks in the summer and once a week! I used to live on one of the routes used by the bikers and loved seeing all the bikes in saying that im all for the unmarked police bikes being around on these nights to educate some of the bikers, my son is a biker he doesn't do the weekly ride to Great Bentley but if he was riding dangerously I would rather they stopped him than he had an accident or caused one!

I,d like to know how Edwina moan thinks the noise is scary and incredibly dangerous .

Does she put her ears up against the pipes to test the baffle s??

No doubt she is in the group of over the top fruitcakes who jump off the path into the hedge as I drive past in my lorry .

BTW I have been driving on efor over 40 years now ,, never squashed anyone on a path or anywhere else , come to that .

Get real woman , go and spend a bit of time in one of the far eastern Countries like I have THEN you will know about noise and lack of respect for others ,, you really don't know how well off you are here
