Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

Sunday night at about 7.10pm, a gaggle of at least 10 quad bikes and off-road motorbikes were driven north up 14th St NW (at Florida) by young men, without lights, helmets or regard to the correct direction of traffic, ignoring traffic signals, performing wheelies, and weaving in and out of cars. There wasn’t a police vehicle in sight.

While it looked very daring, if not cool, I called the Police as it seemed rather a hazard – and just in case it was a semi-organized criminal gang on the loose, but wondered if there had been any other sightings?”

In Feb. a reader saw about 40 ATVs in Columbia Heights. In Aug. a reader spotted around 20 around McMillan reservior .
