Prompted by neighbor complaints about loud engine noise and speeding motorcycles, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office has dramatically stepped up patrols Thursday nights, resulting in more tickets for drivers of all kinds of vehicles on thoroughfares including Interstate 696 and Woodward Avenue. Is the cracking down on bikers a needed protection of the communities or is it harassment?
It's needed protection 55.60%
It's harassment 44.40%
I think it's bullshit. Ok maybe if you're being obnoxious and doing wheelies and burn outs, then fine...you get a ticket. But almost everyone I know has an aftermarket pipe that's a little loud. Every Harley is loud...it's just a fact. The people that come down for the Wednesday and Thursday bike nights generate a lot of business down there. No one is "endangering" the residents. Do they really "need protection" Pfffft... Whatever.
