Nearly half of complaints about bikers received across Fife last year came from one area, it has emerged.
Levenmouth police received a record 1,100 calls about anti-social bike use.
Information received from the public resulted in the seizure of 39 bikes and four quads in 2018, while 34 people were charged with various offences.
A plan of action involving police, council services and elected representatives is now being drawn up to tackle the worsening scourge of masked youths who continue to tear along paths, country lanes, beaches and golf courses.
A raft of measures including the use of CCTV and invoking anti-social behaviour legislation is being looked at to curb the bikers, some of whom are said to become aggressive when challenged.
Services will be focusing particularly on a number of areas in Methil, Methilhill, Leven and Kennoway.
At a multi-agency meeting to discuss the problem, it was made clear the public’s help is key to the solution.
“It was their information and intelligence that helped the police and council identify offenders and then allow the courts to deal with the persistent offenders,” said Labour councillor Colin Davidson.
“I believe this is a serious problem. It’s a miracle that no-one has been killed or seriously hurt.
“Locals’ and visitors’ lives are being put at risk and it’s crucial that the public come forward and call the police or use Crimestoppers.”
Levenmouth area committee convener, SNP councillor Ken Caldwell, said complaints about nuisance bikers are among the most common received from constituents.
“This past year it has been reported that the attitude of many of the bikers has become aggressive and they are deliberately harassing other people using our countryside,” he said.
“They are also quite openly riding along the public roads and even on the pavements.”
In December, Levenmouth inspector Tom Brown said speeding youths posed an “extreme threat” and called for stiffer penalties for those caught riding illegally.
The penalty for driving on land that is not a public road is currently three penalty points, meaning police have to catch offenders four times before they are banned.
The Scottish Government has agreed to meet Labour MSP Claire Baker to discuss the issue.
Local area commander, Chief Inspector Steven Hamilton, said: “The anti-social use of motorcycles and quad bikes affects all of our communities and we continue to urge anyone with information to contact us on 101 with as much information as possible including descriptions of vehicles and any registrations numbers, if known.”
