Public roads are not a motocross speedway and speed limit signs are not a suggestion.

The Gates police chief is urging motorcyclists to slow down.

Police Chief James VanBrederode posted on the department's Facebook page that he's been woken up in the middle of the night by motorcyclists driving well over 100 miles per hour.

VanBrederode wrote that he lives in the area of Buffalo and Wegman roads.

The chief went on to write that public roads are not a motocross speedway and that speed limit signs are not a suggestion.
