I live in a neighborhood close to the national forest. There is a trail around the block that often gets used by ATVs.
So this eve, I was sitting peacefully on my porch as the sun was setting and I had a cat on my lap. Suddenly this noisy ATV comes wheeling past my home. I noticed only a child standing up driving it. The cat got scared, jumped out of my lap, and flew into the air and I ended up with a bleeding, 2-inch scratch on my leg. I just would like parents to consider that our neighborhood streets were not designed for ATV riding and how disruptive the noise can be, not only to humans but also to pets!
Thank you for your time.
