And who's the lucky contractor who will be getting the City business to bike haul?
We are already doing auctions now and the bikes go right back on the streets because the same crews who ride are the same ones that turn up at the PPA auctions. That's a big fail.
The bikes need to go out of circulation when they're snagged by the cops. Period.
The City can still make a quick buck by selling them to metal scrappers, after the engine has been killed.
No one is disputing that you CANNOT own an ATV. Or that you CANNOT have it on your private property leased or owned. And no one is saying that you CANNOT ride it.
But Pennsylvania is crystal clear--it doesn't go on public thoroughfares like streets. Or pavements.
So what is so bad about raising the fines on ATVs to the MSRP of the vehicle, and then giving the PPD the power to pour antifreeze in the gas tank to kill the engine so that way PPA doesn't continue to be a fencing operation for ATV enthusiasts?
