All you god damn tree hugging hippies need to back the F*@% off of bashing ATV riders and take a good look at yourselves, your so into "SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT" tear down your house and plant some trees that were there before it was built, walk to work instead of driving your car, get off of your computer made with materials derived from Gods green earth and stop using electricity, when is the last time you brought your own cup to starbucks so as not to use another paper or plastic cup? While you are getting off of your dumper to be a better citizen ask the DMV and and local authorities where the money for the registration of our ATV's goes. You green people suck, always think that your needs or desires are more important than others on the basis that they don't "fit" into your ideals of moral and responsible people. Go break someones balls about golf courses and using golf carts, gas or electric they both use energy, and WHAT IS THE POINT OF HITTING A BALL FINDING IT AND HITTING IT AWAY AGAIN?! IT DOESN'T MATTER, I don't really care it doesn't affect me and if it makes golfers happy, ENJOY!-I wanted to show how someone can be happy for another without understanding what drives them, try it for a change you a$$holes!

These noisy, gas guzzling vehicles are a nuisance. Underage operators often ride them on public roads or on LIPA property in my area. The county should be enforcing the law, not giving away public land for their use!

Didn't do well in English, did you?

Frankly, I'd be happy if an ATV park was provided, that way these idiots can kill themselves without inconveniencing me.

Do you have a clue what punctuation marks are used for? If you are a product of Rocky Point Schools they should close them down, bulldoze them into the ground and send you into some type of intensive educational rehab.

ATV riding is a sport and a hobby, it has made big changes to alot of peoples life and people need to get out there and ride more. ATV riding is not eligal and we need those legal spots to ride so we wont have to take to the streets. Now im sure that those things are loud but i also now that they dont ride in your backyards. Why would my tax money go to swimming pools,skate parks,stadiums if i dont use any of those...same way goes for riding parks.

I don't see why people think atvs are bad. Can someone explain why? And I don't wanna hear that environment crap, if you wanna protect the environment take a few cars off the road.

you people are so stupid and selfish that it is almost unbelievable, you cant respect the fact that diffrent people enjoy diffrent activities? maybe you should go buy a bike! ive been riding an atv since i was 13 years old and now that im 25 i can tell you that you dont need to ride a bike to stay in shape! atv riding is a great activity for everyone, even my father who cant play sports with me is able to ride an atv and enjoy the outdoors!
not all ATV'S are load and even if they are you cant just handle aittle bit of noise!!!! i hate you people kill yourselves! like i care what the hell you do on public property go do w.e you want and all us ATVers willdothe same

giving these a-holes a "legal" place to ride does nothing to stop illegal activity. they only demand more- in fact other states that have opened areas to these a-holes find the level of illegal activity is the same or higher. some have even closed down riding areas because of damage and other illegal activity.
