<quoted text> MOST ONLY NEED TO BE ON ROAD TO GET TO PLACE COUNTRY PLACES THEY CAN RIDE
If the have to get on the road to get to the place they're going to ride at then most likely they don't own the land that they're riding on. Also, they most likely don't have permission to be riding on that land that isn't theirs. They won't ask for the permission because they know that they'll be denied because of all the damage they do.

Like I previously posted...why buy this thing if you don't own land to ride it on?

5 The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7 So the LORD said,“I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.”

17 I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish.

Maybe these dope head quad riders are instruments of god, sent to bring about a great flood to west terre dope.

Hey KCACO,
You quote from the bible only to mock it.
I'd appreciate it very much if you would refrain
from pulling it's meaning out if context. You don't believe in God which is your CHOICE...
As for me I do believe and I don't appreciate your condescending remarks.
Earlier on one of the other threads you brought up the "believers" making you sick by forcing it in your face..... Well Quit forcing your atheism on me! You don't have to accept it but you can atleast respect it!!
just sayin

I feel like there is a lot more to bitch about in west terre haute than a atv. What do they use to mow the leve a tractor that weighs more than an atv. So should they have to push mow the leve. They are not hurting the leve like u think. I understand if it's late at night and that's all u hear. But to say that they are hurting the levie thats not the issue. If they are destroying farm ground or tearing up ppls property thats one thing. Why bother them if they r not hurting u so what if they ride in the bottoms they arnt hurting u Part of the reason ppl act so stupid on them is cause they have to worrie about cops the hole time they are riding them I have lived in west terre haute all my life and this town has gone to shit cause of problems like meth and theift. Why don't we focus on getting them fixed befor we worrie about who the fuck is riding a atv on the levie

Levees cost dearly to build and maintain. Heavy traffic does do some wear and tear on any surface but the damage done by spinning tires and the constant back and forth does wear down the levee to the point of needing repair more often. It also puts the levee at risk for failure if high water levels occur.
Government money for repairs is harder to come by now so why put the levee in disrepair and find there is no money to fix it before the flooding happens.

Simple fix ! the county should give these people a place to go ride , instead of buying new patrol cars to chase them with! The police and county put the community in danger by getting there rush off by chasing them ! Oh the not running from them doesnt turn out good at all !

GIVE them a place??????
How about they put their own blood, sweat, tears and money into having a place? They can charge others a fee to use it and they can do the maintenance. This should not be a drain on taxpayers.

What is with the sense of entitlement here:

I bought me a four wheeler, I deserve a place to ride it, if I can't ride on the levee, the gubment better give me a place to ride.

Seriously? What kind of white trash sh|t is that?

The majority of people who own ATV don't own ground in order to ride them. Very few people use these machines for the purpose of work. If you don't have a farm you don't buy a tractor? Charge and extra fee for those who are buying them (All of the sport bikes) and give tax breaks to those use them as intended for a extention of equipement needs. The real problem are sport bikes allowing kids to go where they're not supposed to be. Designated area only work for those who have a little money to spend. The ones who are out riding and trespassing are not likely to pay a fee to ride??? Think about it.(Here's the real kicker, you outlaw ATV's whats next? Alcohol, Guns, ect...) I don't like the ATV either. To stop them we have to be willing to help the authorities and turn them in....
they are stolen anyway...its wth come on

They chased and caught several a couple of nights ago. The riders were stupid enough to think they could outrun multiple units.
