ATVs mean dust, noise
The opening of ATV trails may be exiting news for some people, but for residents along the route it is the beginning of a noisy, dusty, and polluted summer. What gives ATV owners the right to intrude on the peace and quiet of taxpayers and residents? If you decide to layout $7,000 for a machine that is clearly designed to be used off the highway, then you should not burden others with the nuisance of ATV traffic on public roads. As to possible economic benefits; unless you own a gas station or a bar, you get none. You only get to pay for damage done to your roads and possible liability in case of an accident.
