What can we do?
Some of our lovely neighbours have motorcycles, most of them are completely courteous and fine to share a neighbourhood with. But there is one group, I assume at least one of them lives on our block, that have taken to ripping up and down a quiet residential street, revving up as loud as they possibly can. The numbers vary day to day, but I’ve seen up to 10 of them here so far. I am pretty sure I’ve heard it after bylaw hours, which is definitely not okay, but is there anything we can do if it’s daytime?
There are shift workers that have to sleep during the day, and kids in the neighbourhood that could be at risk of getting hit. I see many motorcyclists ride every single day that do not feel the nees to make that much noise in an otherwise quiet community.
Even if it’s not illegal, it’s rude af to be doing every couple hours, all day every day. And no, approaching and confronting a group of people who think this is perfectly alright to do, is NOT an option here. Other neighbours who have had interactions with the group have cautioned against it as they as, to put it gently, “not very sociable.”
