Utah Gov. wants crackdown on reckless off-roading

Gov. Huntsman

MOAB UT -- Off-road vehicles that stray from trails are doing immense damage to the state, said Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr., who has directed state officers to begin cracking down.

"It's an abomination, it's an embarrassment," the governor said Wednesday.

Hopefully, we'll see increased enforcement against reckless off-roading in Arizona. A new state OHV law I helped pass earlier this year with diverse bipartisan support will help Game & Fish, State Parks and other officers better protect our natural heritage.
