Councilman proposes legislation to curb illegal dirt bike use and drag racing

As illegal dirt bikes have increasingly run rampant throughout the city — two men on bikes carjacked a driver last week — lawmakers and the NYPD are getting fed up.

As of June 3, the NYPD has seized 322 ATVs and dirt bikes, written 7,469 summonses for motorcycles/dirt bikes and 16 summonses for ATVs. Additionally, according to the NY Post,  “the NYPD has seen an uptick of 15 percent in complaints of dirt bikes and ATVs.”
