Shoshone Forest Cracking Down on ATV Violators

Cody, WY – For the first time, the Shoshone National Forest will conduct patrols aimed at ATV drivers that don't follow the rules. Forest Spokesman Gordon Warren says the patrols will start next week in areas where ATV users have been driving into wilderness areas and onto closed roads. Forest Spokesman Gordon Warren says ATV abuse is nothing new, but it's getting worse. He says some violators are blatant about it, driving right past wilderness boundary and road closure signs. Warren is quick to point out they don't think all ATV users are behaving poorly, he says most do as they should.
