At the Flin Flon City Council meeting Tuesday night Councilor Bill Hanson asked young people racing their quads around Channing Drive to stop. He said 99 percent of riders are fine but some are traveling at high speeds in areas where young children are out playing. Mayor Cal Huntley said there are designated areas to accommodate people riding quads and dirt bikes to get in and out of the city and that is a privilege that can be removed if it’s abused. Hanson noted in Canmore people breaking the quad and dirt bike laws have their machines taken away.
