D.C. Police destructed 62 ATVs and dirt bikes on Saturday which were either unregistered, abandoned, or seized through criminal investigation.
The department used a demolition machine to crush the material, producing over 14,000 pounds of recyclable metal.
Police usually auction seized firearms but took a different approach with the ATVs and dirt bikes.
“We hope those who recklessly operate these vehicles will see this as a symbolic gesture,” Chief Peter Newsham said.
