Today, 21/11/17, visordown.com, the Evening Standard and other media published an article about a proposal for a temporary ban on carrying pillion passengers to tackle motorcycle crime. The proposal was put forward by Ms Berry, the deputy chairwoman of the assembly’s Police and Crime Committee, who raised the idea with senior MET officers.
The article on states that this proposal is being supported by Adie Kitachi, who is being referred to as the”…founder of the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Community and motorcycle security consultant for the Motorcycle Action Group”.
A) The Motorcycle Crime Prevention Community (MCPC), has not been informed of such proposals by Ms Berry and do not endorse her views.
B) Although Adie Kitachi was previously affiliated with The Motorcycle Crime Prevention Community (MCPC), he no longer participates in the organisation in any capacity and therefore cannot represent the organisation’s views or activities.
The MCPC team will contact Ms Berry requesting a meeting to discuss and understand her views regarding motorcycle enabled crime.
We aim to engage in dialogue with all involved stakeholders who can provide assistance with addressing this very important issue.
