Dozens of people on dirt bikes, four wheelers ride illegally through DC

The Metropolitan Police were following behind them, but there wasn't much we could do.

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - Dozens of people illegally rode dirt bikes and four-wheelers through Northeast D.C. early Sunday night.

The group can be seen barreling down H Street, weaving in and out of traffic.  

Although illegal in the District, Metropolitan Police are instructed not to pursue a person or persons riding dirt bikes or four-wheelers.

This is an ongoing problem in the city. In 2016, D.C. Police released images of 245 people riding terrain vehicles like dirt bikes and four-wheelers hoping for them to be identified.
