If only we could outlaw stupid people with more money than brains.........
What a wonderful world that would be.

Re: Why trails are closed...

<font color=purple> I like the idea of outlawing "stupid". Remember Gallagher? The comedian who clobbers watermelons? Anyhow, in one of his routines, he said that instead of the State Patrol using radar guns, they should issue toy pistols with those suction cup darts & little "stupid" signs to all drivers. Then, when you see someone's seatbelt hanging out of the door making sparks on the pavement, or driving across a bridge with the turn signal on, you could stick a "stupid" sign on their car. Once a car accumulates 4 or 5 "stupid" signs, the Highway Patrol would pull them over & issue a ticket. Not too practical, but I REALLY like it in theory [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]. </font color=purple>

Re: Why trails are closed...

I guess I don't really understand what is wrong with what these guys do...I mean so they have a bunch of money to buy a new Xterra...Are you jealous or something???...I mean I can see that is a bad thing if they were tresspassing on private property...Also how do you know that it isn't private property they are allowed to use or that this area is a designated ORV park...I guess I would like to know exactly know what they did wrong...

We don't have too many places to four wheel in New Jersey, and with idiots like this there won't be anywhere left.

Re: Why trails are closed...

Well, I do have to say that having to click through all those pictures was torture, not because of the the pictures, but because there
was no way to skip them.
After looking at each and everyone of those pictues I think that people are complaining, because pictures show these SUV running
over the "tread lightly" motto. The main thing that they are doing is damaging the river/stream they are driving through. When you
go splashing through a river you do the following: you run things over (aka dead fish, plants, etc), you kick up silt that chokes fish
and blocks light from getting to plants (aka dead fish, plants, etc), and you disrupt the life cycles of fish and animals, so that they can
have trouble breeding and eating.
What is comes down to is for everytime you go splashing through a river you are KILLING fish and animals. This may be play for us,
but it is there lives.
