They should outlaw stealing them then riding around the streets on them. I doubt the people legitimately buying are going around in traffic, doing wheels down the road, etc.

There is no place in B'more for that kind of logical thinking!

and did you know ...
Chapters 114 and 115 of 2010 prohibit a person from dispensing motor fuel into a dirt bike from a retail pump at a service station in Baltimore City and require these service stations to post a conspicuous sign stating that prohibition as well as a similar prohibition in the Baltimore City Code.

Does Harrisburg have groups like the 12 o'clock boys. It is a serious problem but there are already laws that deal with these sorts of things. Only law abiding folks will be affected by these new regs.

Must be a lot of people (gas station workers) don't know that one.....or a DRz doesn't count as a dirt bike.

I'd trade not buying a dirt bike in B'more for concealed carry there. That would help solve the problem...

I don't know which is crazier, this law, or the laws already on the books.
UndertheBaltimoreCityCode,apersonisprohibitedfrom driving or riding any dirt bike or any unregistered motorcycle or similar vehicle on any public or private property.
Wait, so if I lived in Baltimore, I couldn't even ride a trials bike in my own yard?!

And then fueling restrictions too?

I understand that they have a problem, but to go after people already intent on breaking the law by passing more laws defines madness.

-not a Baltimore resident, so I have no elected officials to contact.
