With numerous complaints of youths performing wheelie and other stunts on roads with their bikes causing inconvenience to public, especially senior citizens, city cops are on the lookout for youths doing stunts on roads.

The City Police yesterday launched a drive against wheelie and made several arrangements to curb the activity to protect the youngsters as wheelie often results in severe injuries to the riders and in some cases causes death.

Traffic Police personnel from Nazarbad, K.R. Traffic and Devaraja Traffic who got information about such activities in Kuvempunagar, Dattagalli, Vijaynagar 2nd Stage and on Ring Road rushed to the spots to curb such activities. But the time they arrived at the spot the bike riders had fled.

Youth who do wheelie on roads, not only play with their own lives but are also a threat to others. It is the duty of citizens, particularly parents to stop the youths from doing motorcycle stunts and also rash and negligent driving which may cost their lives besides putting the lives of others in danger too.
