Illegal Off-Roading Can Damage The Environment / Off Roading Documentary PSA

Illegal Offroading Can Damage The Environment / Documentary. PSA – Noyo Watershed Alliance Sherwood Road. Producer: MCTV. Contact Information: Mendocino Coast Television (MCTV) 248 E. Laurel Street Fort Bragg, CA 95437 (707_ 961-1127). Creative Commons license: Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States Illegal off-roading seen as threat to nature: The empty beer cans and spent shotgun shells are strewn along the dirt trails that cut into San Timoteo Canyon on the northeastern end of Riverside County. Ken Kietzer, an environmental scientist for California’s state parks, kicks at the shells and surveys the illegal dirt trails cutting through the 8000 acres of public land that park officials hope to one day develop into a state park on the border of Moreno Valley. Illegal off-roading is responsible for erosion, litter and gunfire in the area, he says. But Kietzer’s biggest worry is that off-roaders are riding without spark arrestors — devices that by law must be mounted to the end of an off-road vehicle’s exhaust pipe to prevent sparks from shooting out. Without arrestors, Kietzer fears the off-roaders may cause a brush fire in the parched canyons that are home to mountain lions, coyotes, bobcats, snakes and other wildlife. It is an area that has already been struck twice by brush fires caused by lightning in the last year. “We can’t handle this short of a fire cycle,” he says. Nearly three years ago, the chief of the US Forest Service, Dale N

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
    –C.S. Lewis

    The root problems are proliferation of the human species and human population density in north america. Just think how much we could lower the footprint people have left on the enviornment if we got rid of the 20% of the population that made up of liberals.

    any sort of dirt road like that will cause massive erosion. That mud would wash off the road if people drove on it or not. Invest in sold base materiel. Many off roaders support the environment, bc we actually spend a lot of time in it. and we enjoy it. Ever heard of tread lightly? Illegal off roading is a bad idea, but there are much better ways to make that point. better constructed dirt roads directional water run off would be a cheap solution to this environmental issue.

    All just to burn gas, time, and money. Instead of helping people they spend $30,000 on these trucks and waste energy. I’ll never understand people.

  • ntkris:

    people that do this are just stupid.

  • Diatonic135:

    There should be more videos like this.

    I wish i could think of some good things to say about offroading, have done a lot of it myself, and having known a lot of people who do it, but i can’t. Generally offroaders are careless thrillseekers who do a lot of real damage.

    We should not restrict access to motor vehicles in wilderness areas; rather, we must show how offroading hurts wilderness ecology so that the offroaders use their brains when they head out.
