Riding an ORV Is a Privilege
Riding an ORV doesn’t permit riders to infringe on peaceful enjoyment by others. Our society and the courts view ORV activity as a privilege. This is an important distinction. Under our legal system, it is much easier to regulate or eliminate a privilege than it is to restrict or cancel a right.
ORV users always must show concern for their noise level, especially when using access routes for gas, food, and lodging. The privilege of using an access route often can be eliminated by a simple majority vote of the local jurisdiction.
