Please Madam Mayor, Chief of Police, BID Members, Neighborhood Association Presidents, and Council Representatives, HELP US. It's miserable in the Dana Ave., Lark, Madison, and Washington Park areas. The Motorcycle noise, loud car stereos and engines, and very dangerous driving by these vehicles, are ruining this area. We can't have our windows open for air. We can't sleep at night. We can't enjoy peace in our homes, or dine outside at area restaurants and it's also very dangerous. Children can't even play outside. These motorcycles, and many off-road vehicles, are speeding, doing wheelies, doing U-turns in the middle of traffic, driving into oncoming traffic, bullying other drivers, driving on the sidewalks, the grass, through the park playground and more. Why is this being allowed? We watch officers witness the behavior and not make any effort to address it, take a photo, take down a license number, NOTHING. When asked why, they say they've been told not to. Why is the safety and quality of life of so many people being put at risk for the possibility of a high speed chase that might never happen? It's absurd, negligent and dangerous.
A. Vehicles driving illegally and making noise well beyond the legal noise ordinance.
