VIDEO: ATV riders popping wheelies menace Mid City drivers

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - New video of a group of ATV riders menacing Mid City drivers is circulating on social media.

The video shows dozens of ATVs riding down Carrollton at Tulane, popping wheelies and weaving between cars.

This video comes just two days after a group of ATV riders crashed into Jefferson Parish deputies. 

Drivers on I-10 said Sunday they feared for their lives after a half-dozen motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles took over all three lanes of the interstate.

The growing concern over the safety-risk of these off road vehicles on major streets and highways has caused one woman who lost her sister to an ATV accident to speak out.

"I lost my sister in a matter of seconds. We were inside, and that was it. I never talked to her again," said Tiffany Cola. "My sister was struck by an ATV with no headlights at 11 at night. If she had seen that, she could have moved."

ATVs are not street legal, though a driver's license is not needed to operate one. Driving off-road vehicles on any public road is illegal, and they do not comply with the specific safety requirements needed to drive on highways and interstates, according to our partners | The Times-Picayune.

State Police say they will continue their crackdown, urging drivers who witness off road vehicles on city streets to call 911.

There is no information regarding the identities of the group of ATV drivers in the video at this time.
