MILFORD -

Police in Milford say teenagers are putting residents in danger by taking to the roads on ATVs and dirt bikes.

Officials are asking parents and adults to stop the teens from using the vehicles on public roadways. 

The bikes are not allowed on city streets, but officials say they continuously get calls from neighbors complaining about the noise.

There are also issues with the bikes speeding and driving through narrow streets. Police say the problem only gets worse when the weather is warm.

Police say they are working to address the problem and are asking residents to be patient.
