TUCSON -- Off-road vehicles are a pain. Loud, smelly, dangerous, and destructive. Which is why society and off-roaders need a place like Pima Motorsports Park on the SE side, where people can jump their trucks just like the yayhoo in this PMP photo.
As an ecologist, I am no fan of off-roading, but I agree with Supervisors Carroll and Bronson that the park should be kept open. Watch for other Supervisors to agree too.
Some county officials are considering making the off-road area a shooting range. Hey, perhaps the two activities could be combined? Lots of moving targets.
But seriously, let the motorheads have a small, well-managed spot, and help keep them out of the fragile desert.
