New Dales off-road ban in force

A ban on driving 4x4s and quad bikes on a number of tracks in the
Yorkshire Dales has come into force.

The ban means that "off-roaders" will not be able to drive along four
ancient tracks - once used by horse and carts - which cross the national
park.

Sorry to hear about that.

You should write a letter asking for the reason why to the superintendant of the
park and cc: to his boss and to the other users of the park.

Perhaps it was due to damage by unruly riders. If you start a proper dialogue
and work together such as have permits for usage, I will bet you can regain
access to the park.

Good luck.

The way I understood the News on BBC 24 was that this was an extension to an
already existing ban. Is there a new area covered?

Do I read that right? 4X4 and quads banned but not trail bikes?

Or thousands of walkers who churn up the dales every weekend. All down to
money nearly every shop in the dales is a mountaineering shop or something
for walkers.

I have 20ft of front garden where drunks fight ,Dogs Sh*t, folk tip rubbish
even had a nicked car drove into it once.
And they moan!

Have said before and will say again it's OUR countryside not theirs!!!!

When I read this I thought but who cares about all those green lanes that
dissapeared under tarmac and became the mettalled roads that the majority
drive on ?
