Natural Trails & Waters Coalition (2003). Impacts on Public Health and Safety
The threats posed by off-road vehicles extend well beyond soil erosion
and wildlife harassment. The use of dirt bikes, snowmobiles, jet skis
and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) jeopardizes the safety and health of millions
of Americans who visit public lands and waters each year, as well as dedicated
employees who work there. Land managers have an undeniable obligation
to protect every visitor and public employee from the growing safety risks
associated with unmanaged off-road vehicles.
