Dirt Bikes Continue to Ride Through Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- People in Salisbury said they want to see something done about the dirt bikes riding on main roads and neighborhoods. 

The Salisbury Police Department is asking the public to help identify dirt bikers that were spotted on Salisbury's streets earlier this week.

These dirt bikes are known for swerving in and out of lanes and putting not just the drivers lives at risk, but also their own.

One biker who wanted to remain anonymous said, "It's a feeling of freedom. When everything bad is going on the world, everyday somebody's getting shot, everyday somebody's getting killed people need an outlet and for most of these people its riding the bike."

One mother whose son's car was hit by a dirt bike said while the ride might be thrilling, it isn't worth it.

"It was a hit and run. One of the bikers slammed into him, rolled across the top of his car and got on the bikes and took off, it really traumatized him," the mother said.

But, the Salisbury Police Department said catching these bikers isn't the easiest task.

"We operate in pretty tight parameters as to initiating pursuits of vehicles motorcycles dirt bikes whatever it is. However our policy not to chase these types of vehicles for certain reasons is not a reason not to catch and arrest these particular operators. It is a public safety issue," said Captain Rich Kaiser of the Salisbury Police Department.

The Salisbury Police Department said that one of the main ways to track these bikers down is through social media and tips they receive.

Police said if you know any of the bikers they have on video to call 410-548-3165.
