Were you driving on Northbound Central Expressway on Sunday morning? I haven’t gotten to ask all of our Dallas courier service team members, but so far, none of them were on 75 during that time. We are 24 hour couriers in Dallas, so it’s lucky for us we missed the events on Sunday morning.
What happened, you ask? Well, let me take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll tell ya how some bikers made a mess with no care. (Please sing previous sentence to the tune of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air).
So here is the deal. Bikers joined together to block of Northbound 75. Motorists could not get through, and let’s be honest, neither could police. One biker said the following about the police (courtesy of WFAA.com):
“Yea, they showed up a few times during the ride and at the shut-down," replied the video's poster when asked about the lack of police presence. "But, after figuring out they couldn't do anything about it, they exited 75 and took the drive of shame to the donut shop."
Kind of harsh words for people who were breaking the law and causing possible extreme dangers to other motorists. That’s why I am so glad our courier service in Dallas team members weren’t on the highway during that time. It could have been life threatening!
After blocking off the highway, bikers spray-painted graffiti on the ground. Someone even took a video of the affair and posted it on youtube. That’s when things go hairy. The Dallas police department is now watching the video (with some men’s faces fully exposed) so they can enforce the law upon them. As someone who works for a Dallas courier company, I think this is important. I always want our couriers Dallas to be as safe as possible on the road. With bikers blocking full highways, others’ safety is in jeopardy.
Bikers did a similar event which was posted on youtube. It occurred last year around this same time. But this shutdown apparently had a reason. An important rider had died on the road, and the block was in honor of him. We will see if any ‘motive’ comes out for the 75 shutdown. Personally, I hope the cops teach these guys a lesson. For others on the road like our Dallas couriers and Dallas to Austin couriers, safety is crucial!
