There isn’t much police can do. No cop is going to chase them and cause greater risk. Sadly the civil society is breaking down more and more and this behavior has become the norm. Live in a place where the American flag flies on homes and you will most likely have to deal with such chaos.

Youíre an idiot! Itís pathetic to not be tolerant of chaos and anarchy? What makes you so certain you would last long in a society without any rule of law? Scary how there are so many dumb people that surround us.

Whose best interest? Their own? Not when they jaywalk twenty feet away from the nearest crosswalk.

By this, I mean they are not running up and down a central business district popping wheelies and performing stunts of which and ampletons more likely to endanger bystanders and innocents. ATV riders who take their amusement on public roads have desires of amusement on public property and are fully aware that they are evading enforcement, putting public and private property at risk, and causing a major disruption where as J-Walkers are really only intending to get to their destination faster. Neither are right - but a J-Walker violates far less asside from his personal safety and possibly one vehicle where as these ATV riders are jeopardizing hundreds of both vehicles and pedestrians. J-Walkers can be much more easily citated, and they typically confide after that. ATV riders continuously with no regard for law or safety hosts these events in public areas and also cannot be ticketed or apprehended so easily and they know that which is why they continue to play these games.

J-Walkers do not cross busy streets while trying to interrupt traffic (this comes as a byproduct) nor do they do so with the intent on evading police.

ATV Riders in these instances will do both.

Thank goodness selfless people like you have militarized our society so as to protect the masses of ingrates like me from the insidious threat posed by ATV gangs who ride around doing wheelies twice a week for fun. How ever would I manage if you weren't out there, day in day out, terrorizing minorities on my behalf?

Militarized? Do you have mash potatoes for brains? Itís called a civil society and rule of law. Without that all there is is chaos and anarchy. Yes, people riding around on ATVís that are not registered and not insured on public streets violating traffic laws and causing public nuisance is cause for concern. There are places to ride ATVís and public streets are not one of them.

Terrorize minorities? What are you talking about? Do minorities or anyone for that matter appear to be terrorized by police?
