Off-Roaders Upsetting Local Folks

Perhaps the issue that will only get hotter before it starts to cool off, are off-roaders buying property out by Sage, Radec, Anza, Aguanga, and parts thereof. An angry property owner in Aguanga wrote to The Californian saying:
There oughta be a law! I've watched friends become ill and frustrated, finally moving away, our valley turned into a dust bowl filled with unrelenting and resonating noise. It's not just the volume; it's the change in frequency that drives one crazy. A dirt-bike riding neighbor doesn't know why we get irritated. He says he likes peace and quiet, too. That's easy to say when you're in control. It's only noisy and dusty when he wants it that way.

This is a very tough issue. As a homeowner, I don't want to hear loud noisy engines blaring away either. However, land ownership and freedom are two things sacred to our way of life in the United States. You should have the right to do what you want on your land.

The people who buy land out in the rural areas of Riverside County have every right to enjoy the peace and quiet. However, the people who buy land out in the same area also have the right ride their off-road vehicles. Enjoying peace and quiet is no more "righteous" than riding off-road vehicles. Both sides of the issue should have no preference over the other.

It's kinda like when your next door neighbor starts playing the music too loud. The Sheriff can only do something about it if the noise level reaches a certain decibel level. Otherwise, you're out of luck.
