Clubs have been known to drive in formation at high speeds, pass vehicles unsafely, create roadblocks
RCMP in Newfoundland and Labrador are warning residents of an increase in motorcycle gang activity over the Labour Day weekend.
In an Aug. 31 release, NL RCMP said it expects an increased presence of Outlaws Motorcycle Club members in the province, particularly in Central Newfoundland, from Sept. 1 until the end of the Labour Day weekend.
The RCMP described an outlaw motorcycle gang as any gang of motorcycle riders and supporters who make a commitment to band together and abide by a set of organizational rules while engaging in criminal activities.
Police said the Outlaws Motorcycle Club is a “one per cent club,” which distinguishes them from most motorcycle riders who are law-abiding citizens.
The clubs have been known to drive in formation at high speeds, pass vehicles in unsafe ways and even create roadblocks in intersections.
