Shocking footage of two people hurtling down the Kingsway on a scrambler bike — while dangerously undertaking other drivers – has emerged online.
The pair were spotted by motorists near a slip road into Dryburgh Industrial Estate.
In the footage, the pair can be seen dangerously undertaking cars on the inside lane on an electric blue scrambler bike on a 50mph stretch of the road.
As they pass, the passenger’s feet dangle precariously close to the road surface.
The 23-second-clip – which was filmed on Wednesday at around 9pm – appeared to show the vehicle had no registration plate.
During the clip the two people on the bike appear to both turn to the camera as they look into the passenger side window of a car.
Strathmartine councillor Kevin Keenan deemed the reckless driving “highly irresponsible”.
He said: “It is highly dangerous that the passenger’s feet are dangling so close to the road surface.
“I hope that if those responsible see the video or the images they will realise the error of their actions.
“It is highly irresponsible.”
It was reported earlier this week that a pedestrian had been harassed by a rider while walking with her child in Ardler.
John Bissett, who represents a number of residents in the area, said he witnessed several youths on “scrambler bikes” on Sunday and said one rider harassed a woman as she walked down the street with her child.
Tayside Police Division launched its annual Operation Challenge in response to concerns raised by communities over the antisocial and illegal use of motorbikes and other similar vehicles.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said that residents should continue to report any antisocial and illegal use of motorbikes and other vehicles.
She said: “Operation Challenge has been running for a number of years. It’s a multi-agency response targeted at individuals who cause a nuisance and a danger within their communities through the antisocial and illegal use of motorbikes and similar vehicles.
“We have support from Dundee Community Safety Partnership and working together undertake intelligence gathering, patrolling of hotspot areas and diversionary work through school inputs. We would ask the public to support the partnership in its work by contacting the police or the city council’s community safety warden service with sightings and information concerning the antisocial or criminal use of motorbikes.
“Anyone caught committing these crimes will be charged and reported and their vehicles will be seized.”
