Stop the trashing of our countryside by off-roaders
Our footpaths, bridleways, unprotected ancient monuments and historic Commons are being ruined by incursions from illegal, unlicensed, uninsured motorcycles and quad bikes.
We would like to see harsher penalties for illegal off-road quad bikes and motorcycles, and those driving legal vehicles such as 4X4s and registered quad bikes/motorcycles, who abuse our countryside.
We would also like to see stricter controls over the sale of off-road vehicles such as quad bikes and scrambling bikes.
Ultimately we would like to propose that all motor vehicles should be required to license their vehicles and display a registration number.
This selfish hobby is ruining the gorgeous countryside for everyone. They churn up the hiking trails and are noisy and antisocial, as well as dangerous.
Please ban off road vehicles everywhere apart from designated areas that are well away from everyone else!

I'm with you: you should see the damage they do by here.

These beautiful places are being destroyed by selfish ignorant people. Save our countryside for generations to come.
Anyone who has their life or well being threatened by offroad motorbikes will welcome a licensing system that identifies owners

The last point should read:
