Given the abundance of evidence that points to the lasting and profound damage caused by ORVs, an ethical approach would dictate, at a minimum, that ORV users refrain from driving off designated ORV trails and that land managers enforce existing restrictions on public lands.

Ethical issues around off-road vehicle (ORV) use center on impacts on nature, impacts on other Recreationists, and impacts on ORV users themselves, all three of which provide strong grounds for strictly limiting such use on America’s public lands.

Different recreational activities carried out in close proximity can interfere with one another and with other, nonrecreational uses of forests and rangelands. Hikers scare horses on narrow mountain trails; horses muddy trails for hikers. Boaters scare fish and anger anglers: campers leave gates open and cattle stray. Common sense and courtesy can go a long way in resolving such conflicts, but because these can be in short supply and sheer numbers can make solutions difficult, land managers often step in for the sake of the greatest good and the least damage.
