Firstly everyone that sits behind a wheel should understand that it is a privilege and not a right to drive a vehicle. All motorized recreational vehicles trespassing on land posted or signage "no motorized vehicles" to be held accountable to the state by not only a fine but also points against their drivers license. For those under age, the parents should be held accountable/responsible for the actions of the minors and the fine and points should be held against the parent.
Our woodlands, parks and private lands are being destroyed by rogue irresponsible motorized recreation vehicle users both young and old. Fines alone have not worked. The same drivers are found to be repeat offenders time and time again. There are not enough Police, Fish and Game or law inforcement officers available to apprehend all those who choose to break the law. Those who are caught would not find the law weak, therefore they would be less likely to be a second offender.
Here are just a few links to prove the case. I found these links within seconds of my search. I quickly realized that this is a global issue. Why can't we make a change, is it politics? Regardless of what is in affect right now we know if doesn't work. Please view these links and then choose to do you own searches.
