A novice off-roader got a lot more than he bargained for during a recent
romp through the Mojave Desert.
Jaime Valazqueza went off-roading in a grey Yamaha quad to an area he had
never been before and did not take any water or food, according to his
wife. She reported him missing when he failed to return after several
hours. Rescuers found Mr. Valazqueza the next morning, suffering from a
head injury and a broken leg.
They found him in San Bernardino County near the El Mirage Dry Lake.
Federal Traffic Ticket
The Mojave Desert is many things to many people. For some, it is little
more than a large sandbox and outdoor play area. For others, it is a place
that tests the limits of men and machines. For federal officials, it is
a very delicate ecosystem that they protect through one of the only means
they have available, which is issuing traffic tickets. The National Park
Service just issued a
bulletin about off-road vehicles. These vehicles must be street legal in California
and stay on paved roads or unpaved trails. If drivers are missing a sticker
or stray off the trails, park rangers will issue citations.
If you think state tickets are troublesome, federal traffic tickets are
even worse. All these cases are heard at the federal courthouse in Bakersfield,
and there are only a few traffic ticket days a year. When they finally
do go to court, judges have very little patience and almost never allow
drivers to take traffic school or even pay out the fine. An aggressive
lawyer solves these problems by
appearing for you, which saves you a trip to Bakersfield, and advocating for you, which
often saves you money.
