Officers in St. Louis plan to begin a crackdown on ATV riders on city streets.

“The police department has been made aware of large groups of ATV riders creating disturbances throughout the city,” St. Louis Police Chief John Hayden said in a statement. “We are going to enforce the mentioned state statute, which prohibits the operation of ATVs in places open to the public for the purposes of vehicular traffic within the State. This includes our City streets."

Hayden told St. Louis Today a violation would be a Class C misdemeanor, and violators would be subject to arrest and towing of their ATVs.
