A spokesman for Essex Police Tendring said: "The Road Traffic Act also provides officers with powers as a motor vehicle to commit offences such as drugs and drink driving.
"All of these may affect your driving licence or your desire to obtain a driving licence in the future.
"As with any motor vehicle, you are not allowed to ride/drive on pavements, pavements, parks and many open spaces, which may be considered anti-social behaviour."
