NRP Charges 10 Men with Riding Off-Road Vehicles on Protecte

those DAMNed ATV guys ... seriously - ride legally! In other words, don't ride in Maryland (yet).
Oakland, Md. (September 8, 2014) ─ Acting on a citizen complaint, Maryland Natural Resources Police officers charged 10 all-terrain vehicle riders Saturday with illegally operating in the Youghiogheny Natural Resources Management Area (NRMA) in Western Maryland.

Officers staked out an area near Youghiogheny Mountain Resort in Oakland at 2 p.m. and issued tickets to 10 riders from Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia:
David Alan Bateman, 24, Arbutus; Christopher Matthew Bryant, 27, Alexandria, Va.; Kevin Lawrence Eckart, 23, Ellicott City; Bradley Joseph Fowler, 26, Ellicott City; Matthew Thomas Fowler, 23, Ellicott City; Jeffrey Alan Santmyer, 22, Ellicott City; Joshua Joseph Sebrosky, 23, Bethel Park, Pa; William Robert Setzler, 29, Glen Burnie; Brett James Smith, 24, Sykesville; and Jason William Vizzini, 25, Severn.

“This NRMA, managed by the Maryland Park Service, serves as a protective buffer for the Youghiogheny River, the State’s first Wild and Scenic River,” said Col. George F. Johnson IV, NRP superintendent. “The NRMA designation ensures both the primitive character of the area and water quality. It is important to protect its integrity.”
The Youghiogheny corridor offers a variety of recreational activities, including Class IV and V whitewater rapids during times of high water flow. There are public access points for hiking and catch-and-release fly fishing.

The maximum fine for the violation is $500. The riders are scheduled to appear in Garrett District Court on Dec. 11.

Keep riding illegaly, just don't get caught. You will never be able to ride legally again in this state. I'm sure all states will be like ours eventually.
