Trespassing

On September 7, 2019, at approximately 5:00 PM, officers were dispatched to the area of the Essex Terminal Railway Tracks at Victory Street for a report that dirt bikes were travelling along the tracks for several hours. Everyone is reminded that the ETR Tracks and the property adjacent to the tracks is private property and is posted as no trespassing. Off road vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, etc are prohibited from entering onto this property and could face charges under the Trespass To Property Act for entering a premises while prohibited. There are a number of factors at play in this instance such as the safety and security of persons on or near the train tracks. The other factor is the noise pollution suffered by nearby resident that is caused by the incessant off road vehicle traffic along the ETR corridor. This includes during the winter with snowmobiles and ATV’s as well as all spring summer and fall with dirt bikes and ATV’s. Respect private property and always follow the rules.
