Ban motorized recreation





Banning motorized recreation (which only a small percentage of people participate in) would make towns in forested and rural areas more attractive to a wider group of outdoor enthusiasts. It would decrease noise and air pollution, as well as erosion caused by these vehicles. Banning motorized recreation would also help to decrease our unsustainable use of fossil fuels.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The amount of pollution caused by motorized recreation is considerable, not to mention the erosion and degradation to ecosystems incurred by their use. Also, even in the numbers you mention, motorized recreation makes up only a small fraction of outdoor recreation in any western state.

Byron, even if it is certified by the EPA, it still consumes gasoline and releases CO2 into the atmosphere.

Steve, Hikers do consume fossil fuels to get to trailheads (although many drive hybrid or electric vehicles), but their actual recreation does not. Motorized recreation requires fuel even after a trailhead is reached.
