Video Shows Bikers Shutting Down Street In NYC

A video uploaded to YouTube shows at least a dozen bikers performing stunts in the middle of a Washington Heights street.

Bikers can be seen performing wheelies, donuts and riding ATVs outside the R.G. Ortiz Funeral Home at 190th Street and Broadway.

The bikers can be seen in the video riding across both lanes of the street, effectively shutting down traffic.
City Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez and representatives from the funeral home said the incident caught on the video took place Sunday.

“In this occasion the mayhem went on for about 20-25 minutes,” the person who uploaded the video wrote in its description.

Over the summer, the city and nation were riveted by the stunning video of a pack of bikers attacking a family in their SUV after an incident on the West Side Highway.

During his campaign, Mayor Bill de Blasio issued a stern warning to bikers.

“It’s unacceptable to have motorcyclists effectively take over highways inappropriately and illegally. 

It’s not appropriate for them to make everyone drive slower so they can do their stunts,” de Blasio said in October.
