ATVs and dirt bikes have been spreading loud noise throughout communities as they weave between NYC traffic.
As a result, compounding the problem, raging motorists lean into their horn.
Some residents say it disrupts their sleep and it's like having a nightmare when you're woken up abruptly.
The nightmare is a reality for residents on the Upper East Side and across the city, but relief could be coming soon.
"Whether it's people blasting music, New Yorkers have had it," NYC Councilman Ben Kallos said.
Eyewitness News spoke exclusively with Kallos who introduced a bill Thursday that would bring acoustic monitoring systems to the city if approved.
