So last night as I am relaxing with the hubby and watching Grey's Anatomy we hear this noise of a 4-wheeler, think nothing of it until we actually look outside and see it right smack dead in our drive way. Now for those who don't know, our driveway is fenced off with metal fencing all over and around. Well you know I was pissed, but my husband was FUMING. he walks outside seeing the only 2, and all of a sudden here comes another one. *** is going on. I look down from where they came, they crushed down our treeline in the woods, and then had the audacity to tell my husband, WE GOT LOST!! I AM SO F-ING TIRED OF HEARING THAT EXCUSE- YOU BOUT TO GET YOUR ASS BEAT THE NEXT TIME, IF NOT FROM MY HUSBAND ME AND I WILL CONFISCATE YOUR STUPID ASS 4-WHEELERS.
People with ATV's need to understand, when there are private property signs on property, it means STAY THE HELL OUT!!! IT IS REALLY STARTING TO SHOW WHAT THE PUBLIC EDUCATION SYSTEM IS REALLY LIKE!!!!
ATV does not means AUTOMATIC TRESPASS VEHICLE, again I say.
So what are property owners rights. I still have yet to find out. I hear you can make a citizen's arrest, MY ASS because you know how SUE happy they are and won't hesitate to accuse you of hurting them and making you pay their hospital bill and even some extra money for mental distress. I could confiscate the ATV, but then that would cause them to get in a confrontation.
So again I ask WHAT ARE PROPERTY OWNERS RIGHTS WHEN IT COMES TO TRESPASSERS ON ATVS?
We can't take a picture of their license plate, for they don't have one, we can catch them unless they are idiots and lost, but then how long are they really wanting to stick around, and by the time the TROOPERS, not the NORTH POLE Police arrive, they will be long gone. I am not speaking ill of the police, but trying to get you all to understand that we live in the State Troopers Jurisdiction and their arrival time is 30 minutes out.
So if anyone knows what our rights as property owners are towards ATV's feeling as if they own the **** roadways and trails, please let me know, because it might just take my husband going to jail for assault before something actually gets done about this problem, and it shouldn't have to go that far.
This doesn't go for all respectable ATV drivers, but remember these people who don't respect others property are making a bad name for all ATV owners.
Oh yah one more thing just because there is an Alyeska Pipeline easement, doesn't mean Alyeska owns it all. We live off the easement like many other in our neighborhood, and Aleyska has our PERMISSION to use it. So please remember that next time you think the easement is public use, because it isn't.
And for those who are the culprits for doing this disrespectful act, how would you like it if I were to take my truck and drive on your property ruining it. Just some food for thought.
