Too little, too late. ATVs go where they want to go, and having crossings every so many kilometres across the “Rails to Trails” is a joke. Prissy people are already complaining, and these folks have not enjoyed the benefit of the fulllength of this trail – they walk a kilometre and life is good. Climate change is a reality, which is why snowmobile sales are dismal on P.E.I. and ATV sales are increasing. New Brunswick has a very good system in place for ATV users, which is an economic boost, and self-monitoring by the ATV community to get rid of the bad apples.
The sad reality is money affects politics. The lowly ATV user does not have a voice in the P.E.I. legislature as this decision will be made by people who have never rode an ATV. And if the busy bodies with nothing to do with their time decide ATVs are annoying, ATVs will be banned off this planet.
