Redress of Grievances

by William Crisp

In a recent article I explained damage that occurred to the forest from All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs). The damage will and does cost taxpayers money.
I’ve been wondering why the taxpayers should pay any more money to fix the places that people destroy when recreating. Meanwhile, ATV organizations wanting more access (to other people’s properties) point out that they pay registration fees and so therefore deserve to have their money spent to provide more trails.
Apparently, they think that $20 every two years per vehicle is enough to pay for a massive trail system and access in every county and forest in Pennsylvania.
