FOX 4 cameras move bikers on Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

Bikers took over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge near downtown Dallas Thursday night.

Traffic came to a standstill as they stopped their bikes and revved their engines.

The bikers stayed on the bridge until they noticed the FOX 4 cameras. Then they took off letting other drivers on the bridge get on their way.

Dallas police say they are looking into the incident.

It's not the first time bikers have stopped traffic on a major roadway in Dallas.

Bikers took over Central Expressway on Memorial Day weekend in 2010 and 2011. They performed tricks and spray painted messages about a rider who died on the road in 2009.

Those bikers seemed proud of their antics, posting video on YouTube.

Police did arrest one individual from the 2011 incident after they were able to identify him from the video.

These stunts don't just anger the drivers stuck behind bikers. Several motorcyclists say it gives safe bikers a bad wrap.

"What pisses me off the most is that it gives riders who do ride safely a bad name," Lady J, Local Biker Buddies, said. "It makes us look as if we're all out here stopping traffic, doing wheelies, riding, speeding in and out of traffic - and that's not the way that it is."
