The Hope Valley Safer Neighbourhood Team have received a number of reports concerning bikers racing along the Snake Pass – particularly on Thursday nights.
An SNT spokesperson said that officers were deployed to the route and “engaged with a number of riders about their standard of driving.
“This also provided officers a good opportunity to carry out speed checks at various points along the A57 in an effort to keep this heavily-used road safe for all motorists.
“Whilst carrying out patrols, officers received a report of a vehicle blocking the road. Luckily we were nearby and established that a parked cars handbrake had failed.
“We will continue to monitor this activity and liaise with motorists in order to educate them about the dangers of misusing this road.”
