Rolando Zebina said he has been riding motorcycles for 20 years, and his heart is in the miles he travels.
But riders who zoom by him nearly stop his heart from beating.
“I’ve been in my car and they scare the hell out of me when they ride by,” said Zebina, 38, of Lanham.
Since June, Prince George’s County police have used road and police helicopter pursuit to issue 60 citations to riders who pop wheels — riding on one wheel — and weave through vehicle traffic, while experienced riders such as Zebina educate young riders about safe riding.
“Our primary goal is education with these speeders and really kind of sharing with them the costs of high-speed reckless driving,” said Maj. Peter Eliadis, commander of the county’s special operations division. “We’re also very, very cognizant of the citizens who are driving on these major highways.”
