SALISBURY, Md.- Police are warning against the dangers and illegality of operating dirt bikes on public streets.

With the warmer weather, police said they have seen an uptick in dirt biking throughout Salisbury.

"A lot of times they aren't paying attention to traffic on the roadway and people who may be walking in neighborhoods and it's just not safe to do those kind of things," said Lt. Jason King of the Salisbury Police Department.

Lt. Tim Robinson from the Wicomico Sheriff's Office said, "These bikes were designed for off-roading and they have to remain off-road."

A Salisbury biker who goes by the name "Weaves Laa" said that he understands peoples complaints but doesn't think they're doing anything wrong.

"People are complaining but we're not really hurting anybody. They're just having fun. If you look at them they'll give you a good show to look at. Wheeling, tricks and all that."

Biker Ty Jones agreed with "Weaves" and said, "I think it's very cool. It gives the young people a way to come together, no violence. Just ride, have fun."

Law enforcement said it doesn't matter if they are riding dirt bikes on rural back roads or in the heart of Salisbury: it is still illegal and unsafe.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
