As temperatures rise, officials in Providence are once again taking action against illegal vehicles being driven on city streets. Mayor Brett Smiley and Col. Oscar Perez will present the administration’s new strategy at a 10:30 a.m. press conference. The Mayor recently expressed his commitment to addressing quality-of-life concerns for Providence residents, noting that illegal vehicle activity tends to increase during warmer months. Although there have been efforts to curb illegal vehicles for the past two years, it remains a pervasive issue in the city. An article link to a related story about dirt bike riders taunting and threatening officers during an arrest was also included.
