Police took these two dirt bikes off the streets last weekend.

Police wrangled two men last week for allegedly recklessly driving their dirt bikes on the Glendale/Ridgewood border without helmets or the proper licenses, registration and insurance.

According to the criminal complaint provided by the Queens District Attorney’s office, members of the 104th Precinct allegedly spotted Brandon Robles, 24, and Victor Mateo, 23, operating dirt bikes at the intersection of Cooper and Wyckoff avenues on Friday, July 7, at approximately 9:05 p.m.

The pair was seen driving the dirt bikes without helmets or goggles, and were on the wrong side of the road, crossing over the double yellow lines causing vehicles to swerve and stop short to avoid crashing into the dirt bikes, cops said.

Police also noted that both dirt bikes lacked a license plate, and when asked, neither Robles nor Mateo could produce a valid motorcycle license, registration or insurance.

The 104th Precinct took to Twitter later that night to tout their success in removing the two dirt bikes — and a four-wheeler unrelated to this incident — from the streets.

 

Both Robles and Mateo were each charged with reckless driving, driving on roadways landed for traffic, operating a motorcycle with no insurance, operating a motorcycle without a helmet, operating a motorcycle without goggles/glasses, operating an unregistered motorcycle, operating a motorcycle without a license plate, and operating a motorcycle without a license.

Robles and Mateo were released on $5,000 bond each and both are due back in court on July 19.
