A quick-thinking East Haven Police Officer Vincent Ferrara was on his way to court when he heard a report of ATVs in the area of Foxon Road, the New Haven Register reports. 

So he responded and arrested the driver of a truck who was carrying 3 ATVs  and a quad with him. Police did not seize the ATVs this time but they could if its an issue in the future, the Register reports. The vehicle was pulled over for multiple motor vehicle violations. 

ATV enthusiasts have been terrorizing residents in multiple New Haven County communities and that is why the East Haven, New Haven, Branford, West Haven, North Haven, North Branford and Hamden police departments have been cracking down on ATV abuses. 

Is your community affected by ATV abuse?

Ryan, ATVs & Dirt Bikes belong off road not on our streets. If they want to ride a street bike they need to register and insure their vehicles like the rest of us do. They know they are illegal and they will get eventually get caught.

The driver had a suspended license and the truck was uninsured. I call that good police work, either one made operation on the road illegal. The police had to deal with this residence on Friday night as well.
