Thanks Guy!The gave out 131 summonses.
Dozens of people will be headed to court soon after officials in one Ocean County municipality issued over 130 summonses this weekend at a lake near an old strip mining operation.wpgtalkradio.com
If you read the comments you can see that anything they do to stop illegal riding in Wharton will never work. Some of these people think they can ride anywhere.
Up until they need the policeThe comments were on Facebook. Sorry.
There is a large percentage of individuals who think that the cops suck and should leave them alone. And some say only NJ people should be able to ride there. Or we have the ones who think private property or not they should be able to go there because the state does not give them a place to ride. I just don't understand that logic.
Ben your right about the dirt bikes and ATVs a couple of properly equipped UTVs can take care of that and the state could acquire them from uncle Sam too. I mentioned the H1 as the base to start but the fed does have Cherokee and Wranglers too either way the whole process can be done with minimal taxpayer money being spentI don't know how easy it'd be to get H1's through some places in the woods. They're wider than a lot of trails. But I'd rather see surplus mil gear go to the Park police rather than suburban police departments that don't have a legit need besides looking cool with their MRAP.
I bet they'd catch a lot of people just by hanging out where people come into the woods and drop their trailers off, like Atsion.
Edit: You're also not chasing down a dirt bike or ATV with a four wheel vehicle.
The problem is injuries and disability claims with officers operating off road vehicles. One accident puts an officer out of service causing manpower issues.
