Over the past three nights there has been a heighten effort to crack down on the illegal use of motorcycles, dirt bikes and recreational vehicles on the City Streets and Parks. This is part of the Lawrence Police Department’s continued effort to enforced traffic safety, as well as addressing quality of life issues in every neighborhood of the City. This effort will continue until the message is received that this activity will not be tolerated in Lawrence. The Department has decided to crack down on this activity early as we have received several complaints from residents throughout the City. Since Wednesday, there have been four arrests for multiple motor vehicle violations and destruction of property, 20 tows, and three individuals have been summonsed to court for multiple motor vehicle violations.
