PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh City Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak says for whatever reason, perhaps the warm weather, the city is seeing “a lot more complaints about dirt biking on streets and sidewalks.”
Two city neighborhoods where complaints are on the rise: Carrick and Knoxville.
Zone 3 Police Officer Christine Luffey told KDKA’s Ralph Iannotti that she believes most bikers don’t have licenses, are driving unregistered vehicles and have no insurance.
A Kirk Avenue block watch captain, Donna Williams, last Sunday was on her front porch and shot home video of dirt bikers zooming though the neighborhood, weaving on the streets and sidewalks.
“Slow down. Why do you have to race? Take your time getting there,” said Williams. “They race so fast that we’re afraid they’re going to get hit.”
