Access or abuse?

Efforts to control ATV use in Utah may conflict with users with disabilities that see the vehicles as a way for them to get to areas of wilderness that otherwise would not be accessible to them. In this Salt Lake Tribune article, Richard Beardall, paralyzed from the waist down, said he uses his ATV for hunting and fun. "All we're asking for is reasonable and adequate access," he says. "There has got to be a happy medium" between motorized and non-motorized recreationalists. We just don't know where it is."
