On July 6, 2021, Adams was declared the winner of the 2021 Democratic mayoral election, becoming the 110th mayor of New York City.
NYPD took about 900 of its bicycles and ATVs off New York’s streets by 2022, an 88% increase since 2021, he said.
“The NYPD has heard the call and they have done a tremendous job of getting rid of these loud, intimidating and dangerous and illegal dirt bikes and ATVs that are on our streets,” the mayor said at a news conference.
“For years we see what happens if they come under control or we don’t enforce. They keep growing, time after time.’
He added: “They will be crushed today so that they can never terrorize our city again, piece by piece.”
