All-terrain vehicle driver damaged our lawn

I’m writing in to thank the person or persons who decided that our lawn, along with others on our block, needed a facelift.

I’m writing in to thank the person or persons who decided that our lawn, along with others on our block, needed a facelift.

Someone on the wee hours, on a recent Saturday, tore up our front yard with a quad. Hope that person had a lot of fun and got his kicks, knowing what we all got to see out our front doors. Quads are not for city use, or so I thought.

Thanks for leaving the trees intact and only ripping holes in our yards with the doughnuts.

It takes a pretty weak person to destroy someone else’s property and hard work. If someone does this to city property, I can just imagine the damage to the outlying areas. If you ride a quad, have fun – but do it responsibly.

We didn’t deserve the rampage.
