During the school holidays, evasive action was taken to stop youngsters from using the Downs Link in Cranleigh as an electric scooter speedway track.
The silent menace can be a serious danger to other users, particularly when youngsters are riding at excessive speed with no consideration for other users of the popular pathway.
Riders themselves could be injured, as they have been witnessed riding silently fast and furiously, without helmets and no warning bell.
Here are the rules, which it is wise to follow.
The Downs Link is a 36.7 miles footpath and bridleway linking the North Downs Way at St. Martha’s Hill in Surrey with the South Downs Way near Steyning in West Sussex and on via the Coastal Link to Shoreham-by-Sea.
