3D CAC Moped Survey - Public Safety Questions

3D CAC Is Addressing Reckless Driving of Mopeds and ATVs in Washington, DC Yet Again!

 Dear Residents, Business Owners, and  City Workers,

We recognize that the reckless and unlawful actions of some moped and ATV drivers pose significant risks to public safety. It is unacceptable for anyone to feel unsafe while walking or driving in our city, and the behavior of these drivers must be addressed. This is an ongoing citywide crisis.

In response to these concerns that were further amplified and shared at our most recent 3D CAC Public Safety Leaders Meeting in May, 3D CAC is actively working on several measures to improve safety and assisting MPD in enforcing traffic laws more effectively.

We would like to educate and inform both drivers and pedestrians about traffic laws and safety practices. We want to see lawful and responsible riding behavior and increased compliance with traffic regulations. We want stiffer penalties to make our streets safer for everyone. We want to have an opportunity to sleep peacefully at night and to navigate the city without having to experience reckless driving in the streets and alleyways.

We fully support MPD with ramping up public safety patrols and enforcement efforts, particularly in areas with high pedestrian traffic, in front of businesses, on residential streets and at night  especially around 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. We have asked MPD to monitor and address violations by moped and ATV drivers to ensure the safety of our community.

In working with the DC City Council and the Mayor’s Office and Community Members, We are asking for stronger consequences, mandated education, the implementation of stronger regulations, and felony penalties for reckless violations all to promote safer streets.

We encourage residents to report in progress incidents of reckless driving by calling 911. We're also collecting reports of these incidents. Community reports help us to identify problem areas and take appropriate action. We ask that you please continue to provide us with detailed information on any incidents you witness.

Your safety and well-being are of utmost importance, and we are committed to creating a safer environment for all residents.

Thank you for your time and valuable input. Together, we can ensure a Safer, more Secure environment for everyone in Washington, DC.
