JAMESTOWN – As the weather starts to improve, motorcycles will be out in the City of Jamestown, raising concerns for some residents.
City of Jamestown residents are concerned that motorcycle owners will operate at excessive speeds throughout the area. Multiple Jamestown City Council members, in fact, raised those points during its Work Session meeting last night after they say they’ve spoken with various residents.
Jamestown Police Chief Tim Jackson says that his department will increase their enforcement of motorcycle speeding over the next several weeks. Jackson tells the community that its members can also help officers with the enforcement.
“It’s important for city residents to remember to call when this is happening,” Jackson said. “Due to our call volume, sometimes it’s very difficult to get there. We’re doing the best we can, and I can say we will be putting out extra patrols for that.”
The subject was discussed after an email was sent from a group of residents that reside on East Cowden Place and Myers Avenue expressing concerns of motorcycle speeding and children riding motorcycles without helmets.
