Some drivers say they're fed up with motorcycle rider performing dangerous stunts at high speeds.

Sunday, Crystal Donnelly recorded video on I-680 which shows two of the bikers popping wheelies and standing on their bikes.

Donnelly says the bikers were speeding and doing exhibition tricks for several minutes down the stretch of highway.

"Regardless if it's an experienced driver or someone who has been doing this 20 or 30 years, that one mistake," she said. "There could be a drunk driver out behind that you don't know about. There could be someone with a heart attack that swerves into your lane when you're doing an exhibition trick. You may be safe but the people around you might not be."

Law enforcement is working to crack down on reckless and speeding motorcyclists.

Nebraska State Patrol Troop A Omaha just wrapped up a special motorcycle enforcement operation that went from May through Aug. 31. That operation ended with three arrests for reckless driving and 36 speeding tickets.
