A Montrose woman had to stop and pull over on the side of Alabama Street after being surrounded by ATVs and dirt bikes while on her way to the grocery store Sunday.
“This is absolute insanity,” she said in a video she recorded during the encounter. “Nobody can go anywhere.”
She asked us not to identify her, sharing an experience she’s never seen during her more than three years in Houston.
“They kind of just took over all the lanes of traffic [and] were doing wheelies, and swerving around,” she said.
Another group was captured on video going through downtown last week.
“It looked like 100 of them out there, so it looked like something out of a movie,” said Frank Lopez, who shot the video from his third-floor office at Rusk and Milam Streets. “We want to keep it safe, to where, you know, where when someone brings up the Skyline District, they’re not like, oh, ‘That’s where that thing happened with those riders.’”
He said he’s starting to see the groups of riders more often.
“They’re off-road vehicles being used on-road,” said former Houston police officer Tom Nixon.
