I tell you, this is just not cool:
City officials crushed nearly 100 dirt bikes Tuesday, with Mayor Eric Adams saying he's determined to eradicate the menacing vehicles from local streets.
In all, 92 of the illegal rides were pulverized under a bulldozer at the Erie Basin Auto Pound off Gowanus Bay in Brooklyn — as Adams vowed to continue City Hall's war on the unauthorized recreational machines.
The bikes are not street-legal in the city.
Just amazing—in a city where seemingly every type of crime is on a meteoric rise, the local government somehow found a time to haul nearly 100 dirt bikes over to Gowanus Bay and crush them flat under a 10,000-pound dozer.
And man did they lay it on thick:
"Today, as we stand in the shadow of the Freedom Tower, we are freeing ourselves from these destructive piece[s] of machinery that's on our streets," Adams added.
"They will be crushed today so they can never terrorize our city again, each and every one of them," he said. "They will be turned into scrap metal and eventually recycled."
I thought the lefties wanted people to drive more fuel-efficient vehicles! Those bad boys can get up to 120mpg if they are 4-stroke!!
And as for recycling them, did it occur to no one to resell them to dirt-bike enthusiasts around the country??
On or off a dirt bike, it's always a fine time to get out of New York City!
