New York City Mayor Adams watched gleefully as a massive bulldozer pulverized  nearly hundred seized dirt bikes at the Eerie Basin Auto Pound off Gowanus Bay in Brooklyn on Tuesday. 

The crushing event was part of a new safety initiative to eradicate the dangerous vehicles from the city streets in which the bikes will be turned into scrap metal and recycled.

Adams called the bikes ‘destructive piece[s] of machinery,’ and waved a checkered white and black flag, before the giant bulldozer rolled over and crushed a total of 92 bikes, The New York Post reported.

During the presser, Adams said he was ‘making good on his promise’ in eradicating these menacing bikes in an effort to ‘make all of our boroughs a place where people can move about.’      

 ‘The NYPD heard the call, and they did a Herculean task to get rid of these loud, intimidating and dangerous and illegal dirt bikes and ATVs that are on our streets,’ Adams said.

‘For years, we’ve witnessed what happens when they go under control or we do not enforce. They continue to grow over and over and over again.’  

 The bikes are not street legal, the news outlet reported.   

Approximately 900 bikes and ATVs have been removed off the city streets so far this year, an 88 percent increase from 2021, the Mayor said.

The bikes are not street-legal in the city.  

On Tuesday when city officials posted the video of the bulldozer at work with the caption: ‘Own a dirt bike in New York City? Ride around and find out what happens to them,’ some people spoke out about the initiative. 

‘Could have donated them to a school, teach kids how to take them apart, how they work, then put it back together. Gotta think outside of the box instead of making everything an Adam’s Show,’ one person wrote.
