City of Cleveland Issues Statement on Illegal Riding

Despite regular traffic enforcement details focusing on illegal riding, dirt bike and ATV activity on city streets remains a challenge for law enforcement. Although tactical pursuits can be effective at times, vehicle pursuits overall pose an extreme danger to not only those in violation, but also innocent motorists, pedestrians and police officers. One of the most effective tools in combating illegal and nuisance riding is for individuals to obey the law and to stop riding illegally.  Another way is information from citizens. If you have information relative to planned rides, the parking or storage of large quantities of dirt bikes, or know of someone who you believe is involved in involved in this illegal activity, contact law enforcement. Call 9-1-1 in emergency or 216-621-1234 for non-emergency. You can also report illegal activity anonymously by calling CRIMESTOPPERS at 216-25-CRIME.
