Environmental Concerns

Off-road driving can provide wholesome and satisfying recreation. However, it also raises environmental concerns. We recognize these concerns and urge every off-roader to follow these basic rules for protecting the environment:

• Always use established trails, roads, and areas that have been specially set aside for public off-road recreational driving; obey all posted regulations.
• Avoid any driving practice that could damage the environment—shrubs, flowers, trees, grasses—or disturb wildlife. This includes wheel-spinning, breaking down trees, or unnecessary driving through streams or over soft ground.
• Always carry a litter bag—make sure all refuse is removed from any campsite before leaving.
• Take extreme care with open fires where permitted, camp stoves, and lanterns.
• Never park your vehicle over dry grass or other combustible materials that could catch fire from the heat of the vehicle’s exhaust system.
