New York - SAUGERTIES, N.Y. - An enforcement detail in the village will target motorcycles with illegal muffler systems, according to Police Chief Joseph Sinagra.
Sinagra said the enforcement will be from noon to 6 p.m. today and Saturday in the areas of Partition and Main streets in the village. He said six officers will be part of the detail, with some of those officers coming from the state police and Ulster County Sheriff's Office.
"The target of the enforcement is motorcycles that have illegal muffler systems," Sinagra said. He said the illegal muffler systems have caused a disturbance in terms of quality of life in the community. Sinagra said the enforcement is aimed at educating motorcycle riders and asking them to be cognizant of the noise from illegal muffler systems, though traffic tickets will be issued if necessary.
The chief added that an enforcement detail last weekend resulted in 139 tickets being issued for a number of vehicle and traffic violations, not just to motorcyclists.
Sinagra discussed the planned detail during Wednesday's Town Board meeting.
Councilwoman Leeanne Thornton recounted an incident she witnessed on Washington Avenue in which a motorcyclist went up and down the street three times doing tricks.
