CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

You may have seen them speed past you at a hundred miles an hour on the highway.

Trick riders -- perform stunts on their motorcycles and the open road is their playground. 

Although the tricks may look cool and exciting, police say stunting is reckless.

On March 8, six motorcycle riders got into an accident along Columbia Parkway.

It's reported that one of the riders involved had posted a video of stunting just before he got into this accident. Two other motorcyclists in the group ended up hitting another car.

Members of the group said they were not stunting, but accidents like that is what police are warning against when it comes to this type of wild ride.

"Pushing the envelope you get to the point where you go just a little to far and the result is injury accident and sometimes death," said Cincinnati Police Lt. Bruce Hoffbauer. 

Which is what Lt. Hoffbauer and the Cincinnati police are trying to prevent.

These riders mainly operate in the Spring, Summer and Fall. You're likely to seem them on open roads like Columbia Parkway and Interstate 471. 

Lt. Hoffbauer wants to put the brakes on doing these tricks.

"That should be done on a closed course in a controlled environment and not on the surface road of the interstate where the rest of the motoring public has access to them," said Lt. Hoffbauer.

Police say motorcyclists caught stunting can face reckless driving charges. Those can be costly and can affect your driver's license.
