161 Concord St New Haven, Connecticut
The illegal bikes are officially back! I'm sincerely fed up with the lack of police presence on our street. Nice to know that Morris Cove is once again forgotten about. Two male bikers on dirt bikes just screamed past my house, makeshift face masks in place. We know the police are aware of it. Get better at corralling them or the neighborhood will find a way to do it for you.

We were pleased to read in the Register that the NHPD is taking this quality of life issue seriously. We hope they will keep an eye (or perhaps ear) on Townsend Ave, where we continue to have under-muffled motorcycles, dirtbikes, and ATVs round the clock.

Kid on ATV tearing up and down Townsend Avenue the past few nights around 10. Now would be a good time to set up one of those traffic checks at Parker Place. Catch him as speeds through the stop sign.

Last night, Friday, the 25th; at 9:30-10:00PM, there was a large ATV being driven around Florence to Townsend, to Parker, to Mansion and then driving into the large driveway between the two houses on Florence, at the end of Mansion. They made many of these passes at a high rate of speed, and a great deal of noise.. The vehicle is housed at one of the two residences. I called and reported it, but never saw a police car come by. Please gat a handle on this right away

Illegal East Shore ATV's 2
(Originally posted 12/20/09 but closed by others as "too old.")
Reckless noisy clowns on Quads/ ATVs and dirt bikes (along with snowmobiles in the winter) have been plauging East Shore, & all over New Haven for years blasting up and down Townsend Ave. & side streets & noisily tearing up Black Rock Fort, park land & across lawns etc.
They dangerously disobey traffic laws, running stop signs & traffic signals, zigzagging across the centerline towards oncoming traffic, cutting off cars etc.
As posted in original post, most recent dirtbike sighting was lastnight traveling down Townsend by Nathan Hale School and then back again headed towards the highway. Couldn't make out bike color in dark but rider was hefty WM with crewcut.
For what it's worth, word is one of the local East Shore riders might be the person who posts New Haven "bikelife" & girl-streetfight videos on YouTube like this of his taken on Ferry Street:
Thankyou NHPD for your help in these matters and Thankyou Sgt.

There have been 2 car crashes in 3 weeks at the intersection of Lighthouse & Marion. All season, people race around this bend with screeching tires. Whether it's narrowing the road, installing an elevated pedestrian crosswalk, a traffic circle, or changing the road surface -- SOMETHING needs to be done. Note: No one was hurt in the accident shown in the photo.
