If you have driven down the streets of Rockford last year and today as well. You probably have saw several dirt bikes and 4 wheelers driving recklessly in the roadways.
Last year they taunted the police on several occasions including yelling at the police and calling them names and giving them the middle finger.
Sources said they were back at it again today around 1:30 pm near Washington School on the West side.
Source sent us a video and said the Rockford police officers were on scene and people on dirt bikes and 4 wheelers taunting the police once again. They said they were driving in the opposite lanes of traffic and also obstructing traffic.
This has become almost a daily occurrence in the Rockford area these days. We have not heard of any arrests. Police show up, chase the suspects for a few then terminate the chase. And the suspects go about to do it another day.
We have been told by sources they have caused several accidents in the past. Police have yet to confirm this.
One source said they do it, because they know they can get away with it and police will not arrest them. So they think of it as a game of taunting the police.
Below is a video that was sent to us from Kristy Olson, today around 1:30 pm, in the area of Washington School on the West side.
