This dirt bike thing in Baltimore continues to be out of control. I can't believe that 10 years after I first saw packs of these going around, they're still a problem.
I mean, other cities don't have this problem. What makes Baltimore so unique?
To ride an illegal dirt bike, especially on the sidewalk or through parks, needs to be an arrestable offense. Pursuit needs to be an option. And forfeiture laws need to be made so that people lose their bikes (and these bikes not auctioned back to city people).
Now these are three suggestion that go against what I normally believe in. But continued tolerance of this danger is more of a risk. Baltimore's dirt-bike culture needs to be stopped. And that will take one summer (maybe two) of aggressive enforcement.
