* Work with the police to seize and crush bikes driven illegally and serve ASBOs and noise notices on persistent offenders
* Look to set up managed sites where bikes can be driven legally and safely
Tony Lewis, from the LGA's children and young people board, says: 'Councils and the police are already taking a hard line on mini-motorbikes. These bikes are ripping up parks, blighting peoples' lives and even causing deaths in road accidents. Councils and the police are already working to seize and crush bikes driven illegally and are prepared to serve ASBOs or other notices on persistent offenders.
'However, local authorities are also investigating ways of providing properly monitored, safe race tracks to allow young people to ride bikes safely and without disturbing local residents.
'These bikes are not toys so we also need to make sure that they are properly advertised and that people know where and when they can ride them.'
* Respect task force guidance
