TO:                  ALL MEDIA OUTLETS
FROM:            SHERIFF LELAND FALCON
SUBJECT:      ATVíS, DIRT BIKES UTILIZING FARM FIELDS

 

 

NAPOLEONVILLE Ė We have received complaints from farm land owners and operators who have indicated that 4-wheelers and dirt bikes are utilizing farm headlands and farm to market roads to ride on.

Weather conditions were terrible for the past grinding season and area farmers are trying to repair the damage to their properties in anticipation of the upcoming planting and grinding seasons.

If you do not have exclusive permission to ride on these properties, please do not do so.  Any damages can result in criminal charges and you can be made to pay any associated costs.

We urge parents to please advise children not to utilize these properties.

Additionally, unauthorized powered ATVís create an undue risk of serious accidents when farm equipment is working.

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Sheriff Leland Falcon
