“Riding dirt bikes is never legal in Providence, but people still ride them and rev their engines like they own the road. I have to bear with 75 or even 85+ dB of noise from dirt bikes and modified cars every day and every night. Some people purposefully rev their engines around 1:00 a.m. at night near my apartment. I don’t know why is this even tolerated or allowed. I am very disappointed at the way the city deals with this problem (if it has tried to deal with it). The dirt bike problem has made me seriously thinking about moving away from the city once I am able to.”
