Re ATV friends and Foes Face-off:

I find Yukoners seem to miss the other five per cent of people affected by regulations.

If ATV and snowmobiles are regulated and limited to areas, what about the handicapped, physically disabled and senior citizens?

Since these people have limitations on mobility, they rely on vehicle transportation for outdoor recreation.

By restricting motorized transportation, we are biased against this group. If they go ahead with these regulations, I can see this is going to be a long court battle.

When people think of these changes they should remember how they affect the handicapped and the elderly.

I think education should be the first option.

I remember, years back, when Whitehorse officials were chasing snowmobiles and ATVs by using ATVs and sleds. That did not last long.

WCB put a stop to that because it endangered the employees.

I cannot see on how they are going to enforce new regulations. It is like the new boating law, no enforcement.

It cost too much, and not one enforcement agency wants to do it.
