A couple of years back I was nailed by the DEC because I was riding my ATV on an abandoned railroad bed. They said that the DEC purchased it and while they controled it it was for snowmobiles. When questioned as to when this all happened they had no answers. Wrote the plate down and off I went. This same railroad bed I have been riding on for years as it borders my own land!!!
So count me in! I think this is discrimination!!!!! Everyone else gets to use the land and we pay registration fees (which was suppose to go into a seperate fund not the general) so we have every right!!
just got a jeep - needed for work, but would like to try some muddin'. My dad has some land down at the state line on top of one of the hills. long dirt road to get up there and he just sold the timber rights so I may have someplace to go this summer - we'll see!
The biggest thing that gets me is that there is no point in having the land if it isn't getting used. There is a lot of land that isn't getting used at all, and there is so much that can be done to protect and enjoy it responsibly.
I agree 100% but our goverment is so heavy with more goverment that nothing ever gets done. Look at the Buffalo watter front development or the peace bridge project
My greatest example of the government not being able to do as well as private industry is the USPS. Of the major companies that deliver packages (FedEx, UPS, DHL ect.) who is the one that is in bankruptcy? Oh yeah.... the one that is run by the governmen.
