Decision Could Restrict Adirondack ATV Traffic

Listen to this story
All-terrain vehicle groups say their sport is growing fast, with an estimated 300,000 4-wheelers in New York state. But a series of court decisions have made it difficult for local governments to open town and county roads to ATV traffic. Now, the state Department of Environmental Conservation says those rulings will also restrict the designation of new ATV routes in the Adirondack Park. As Brian Mann reports, the DEC policy is a major blow to ATV-enthusiasts hoping to develop a regional trail system. It could also lead to the closure of more than fifty roads that have already been opened in the western Adirondacks.
