This is not some new, strange or rare concept either. This is something we encounter every day of our lives, everywhere we go. Everyone can use the streets in our towns, for example, but that doesn't mean you can do whatever the heck you want on those streets. Same idea applies to any public space, and most private spaces too!
I think part of the problem is the manner in which ATVs are advertised by the manufacturers. A lot of ATV advertisements would lead you to believe 2 things:
  1. If you own an ATV, it is your right to use it however you like, wherever you like.
  2. If you aren't using your ATV to tear up the ground into a big muddy mess, then you aren't using it correctly.
