ATV riders are becoming a problem in downtown Durham.
“I have seen them on Main Street, you can see them doing their stunts,” said Christina Crosby, a concerned driver from Durham. “You don’t know if they’re going to lose control. They’re unregistered, there’s no license, and there’s no insurance. So, if they do damage to you, you’re responsible for it.” Other residents have the same concerns.
According to North Carolina state law, riding these all-terrain vehicles on public roads is illegal. However, the Durham Police Department and the Durham County Sheriff’s Office have no formal plans to deal with the issue.
