Reader shares thoughts on ATVs in the city of Rhinelander

To the Editor:

Rhinelander can not be designated primarily as a tourist town like surrounding municipalities. It has always been promoted as an industrial and trading post site. Rhinelander has been a stop for tourists to resupply food, necessities and to eat out only to return to their vacation stop. This use of our community has increased the amount of traffic on our city roadways when added to the mass of rural resident transient traffic. To add to the traffic the use of ATVs that are not designated for operation on our roadways one should weigh the validity and purpose of the intent of allowing their use added to the present safety, road maintenance costs, required insurance liability and vehicle equipment standards and State of Wisconsin laws to maintain safe operation of applied motor vehicles on our roadways.

The city has to uphold the integrity of the present use because there is no over-ruling justification to substantiate recreational use in a traffic high demand county seat municipality.

Recreational use is mainly motivated by self interest and holds no water for this cities present use and planned goals.
