I think we all know by now that it is illegal to leave your car running and unattended in New York state. Section 1210 of the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law makes it illegal for a driver to leave a vehicle without stopping the engine, locking the ignition, and removing the key from the car. But that doesn't stop a lot of people in the Capital Region from doing just that. Not only could you get a ticket, but it could also be worse.
Albany Police are making good on their goal to crack down on the dirt bikes and ATV's that race around the streets of the Capital City. On Wednesday officers took four unregistered dirt bikes off the streets in reaction to separate incidents.
