NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -
New Orleans City Councilman Jared Brossett said the recent ATV hit-and-run crash that killed a mother of two brought a topic to the forefront that people have complained about for years.
"I've received complaints about the ATVs, and from what I can remember as a staffer some years ago, I remember they've been on the books as illegal," he said.
ATVs are off-road vehicles, and the NOPD points out that it's illegal and extremely dangerous for anyone to drive them on city streets.
Video from YouTube shows several four-wheelers weaving in and out of traffic throughout New Orleans, even traveling the wrong way on a busy street.
"I want to have this discussion and have a public discussion at the council meeting," Brossett said.
Brossett said the NOPD's Traffic Division will be on hand at Thursday's meeting to discuss the issue.
"They should not be on the street at all," said Tiffany Cola.
