On Saturday, March 22, 2014 / 0800-1700, a multi-agency Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) Enforcement operation took place throughout the Morongo Basin.  The operation involved Rangers from the Bureau of Land Management, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputies and San Bernardino County Code Enforcement Officers, and was briefly supported by a sheriff’s helicopter.

Personnel assigned to the sweep targeted areas where high volumes of complaints about off highway vehicle activity have recently originated.  Much of the operation focused on the Yucca Mesa, Flamingo Heights and Landers areas.

During the nine hour operation, deputies responded to three calls for service relating to illegal OHV use.  None resulted in riders being contacted.  Personnel made approximately 40 proactive contacts of OHV riders.  15 citations were issued to OHV riders for violations including operating an OHV on the roadway, expired green stickers, modified exhaust and operating an OHV without a safety helmet.  Two citations were issued to riders for violating the San Bernardino County OHV Ordinance.  Two juveniles were cited for operating OHV’s without having attended an approved safety course and one parent was cited for allowing a juvenile, under 14 years of age, to operate an OHV without parental supervision or required safety training.

This operation was paid for, in part, by grant funds issued by the California State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division.
