New Driver Finds Trouble In The Desert

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.
