For months locals have complained about the lack of action with regards to illegal dirt bikes and alike riding on Bristol Borough streets.
Tonight it appears one such biker and his dire bike will pay the the price for allegedly riding on borough streets illegally.
An anonymous source, sent the feature picture into Lower Bucks Source a short time ago, of a dirt bike being placed on a tow truck.
The source said, BBPD captured the young man on Rt 13 in Bristol and handcuffed him.
Looks like he’s at least going to be charged tonight, the source opined.
This past Spring, Quad and dirt bike riders seemingly thumbed there noses at law enforcement in Lower Bucks as riders took to the streets with riding illegally on residential streets, sometimes causing hazardous driving conditions for motorists and the public at large.
Commenter’s asked frequently why chases were not pursued by police of the illegal riders.
Bristol Borough Police Chief, said its just not practical to do so.
“The possibility of success pursuing a quad or motorcycle in a car is very unlikely,” he said in April.
Henry said the policy of the police department when it comes pursuing to motor vehicle operators is justified only when the necessity of immediate apprehension outweighs the level of danger created by the pursuit.
The Police Chief said photos or videos can be submitted to the departments Crimewatch page where the public can submit tips confidentially of those riding borough streets illegally.
Information about the alleged suspect was not available at press time we will update the story as additional information becomes available
