A group of 10 youths have been arrested between 17-20 July 2020 on suspicion of dangerous riding of PMDs and PABs. The police made the arrests based on a video which circulated online in July after investigations led to establishing their identities.

The video shows the youths riding in a group on roads around the CBD at high speeds including up Sheares Avenue.
