Regional Approach to “address operations of off-road vehicles on public roadways”?


On Tuesday (one day after ATVs were spotted all over town) we heard about an appalling incident where ATVs and dirt bikes cornered an ambulance with a NICU patient on the way to Children’s Hospital. Thankfully the patient was OK but it really highlighted just how bad the ATV situation has become from time to time. Even if it’s not super common and even if it’s a “few bad apples”, the lawlessness can no longer be ignored. Yesterday the Metropolitan Police Department issued a press release about:

“Chief of Police, Cathy L. Lanier and agency officials will host a joint press conference at MPD Headquarters to address operations of off-road vehicles on public roadways.

ATTENDEES: Metropolitan Police Department
Prince George’s County Police Department
Maryland State Police
Maryland National-Capital Park and Planning
Arlington County Police Department
Alexandria County Police Department
Virginia State Police
United States Park Police
District of Columbia Office of the Attorney General
United States Attorney’s Office”

Updates when their plan/approach is released.
