"News" piece on attempts in Sanford and Freeport to regulate All-Terrain Vehicle
"News" piece on attempts in Sanford and Freeport to regulate All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) use. Every weekend, dozens of ATVers from out-of-state invade Sanford and tear up snowmobile trails so badly that the local snowmobile club has lost landowner permission to use 7 miles of its 37-mile network. And in Freeport, ATVs are chewing up the trails in Hedgehog Mountain Park. The Legislature has responded with a raft of laws, but ATVers don't seem to be paying attention. Scott Ramsay, the ATV coordinator for the Department of Conservation, advocates a multi-faceted program that includes education, enforcement and money for trail acquisition and building. Sales of ATVs have jumped by 60 percent in the past three years and now exceed snowmobile sales.
