Residents and visitors to the beaches and the little village of down town Mt Maunganui are absolutely sick and tired of this beautiful area being held to ransom by childish idiots trying to make as much noise as they can and bike gangs riding through the area making a racket well beyond the legal limit intimidating locals and visitors With their disgusting behaviour . Where are the police? They are rarely seen patrolling over the weekends when these idiots are here. Please Mr policeman be seen , be active , and put a stop to this nonsense.
