Salisbury Police issue public service announcement on off-road motorcycles

SALISBURY, Md. - Salisbury Police released a statement on Monday morning about off road motorcycles.

According to Salisbury Police, over the past few weeks, officers have experienced a rise in calls for service involving off-road motorcycles on city streets. They say it presents a safety concern not only for the drivers of the motorcycles but also for law-abiding motor vehicle drivers as well. It has been reported that the drivers of the off-road motorcycles are not wearing helmets, causing an even bigger concern for the drivers.

The Salisbury Police Department is asking anyone that sees this activity to report the incident to police as soon as it is safe to do so. Police say, being able to identify the driver, describe what he/she was wearing, describe the motorcycle being driven, and provide where the driver was going will greatly help police in finding who the driver was.

Police say the public should be aware that it is a violation of Maryland motor vehicle law to drive an all-terrain car (ATV), dirt bike type motorcycle, or any other motorized cars on the public streets of Maryland, without the proper vehicle registration and licensing.

The Salisbury Police Department says that it is their goal to prevent an accident which may cause serious injury or death. Anyone with information is asked to call the police department.
