There’s been an uptick in this in my neighborhood as well. Dudes on little endos popping wheelies down the street. It’s only a matter of time before one wins a stupid prize and takes a header into somebody’s parked car; and of course nobody wears helmets. If I recall this was a big problem just before the 2008 market crash as well. Maybe history is getting ready to repeat itself?

My condolences to the grieving family. This is such a shame that it had to come to this point.

Illegal to drive quads and dirt bikes on public roads without proper registration and helmet. If he was riding illegally hope he is prosecuted properly even if dead still illegal. Quit riding illegally, no one is above the law and this guy paid his price.
