No, you're in need of some brain. Just because someone built a trail doesn't justify him being a complete lunatic.

Regarding emergency vehicles accessing trail heads on de-activated logging roads, maybe ambulances and fire trucks won't go, but SAR ground crew vehicles certainly will and I think they define as emergency vehicles. I don't think asking people to not block access defines anyone as a lunatic.

How does parking in a pull-out block access?

i think the point that parking in a pull out blocks it for vehicles that may need to turn around is a valid one...those vehicles could also be personal vehicles...so i agree with that...didn't really apply in my case, as there were branch roads in the area in which to turn around, but i suppose the general rule is a useful one (providing the road opens wide enough to park on the side at some point)

I enjoy a good argument, but not when it's with people who have absolutely no clue on the subject matter. Blocking access in pull outs... Ambulances... SAR can't turn around, etc, etc.

I'm out.

Sound like the man probably saw a situation in the past which made him think this way. I'm sure there is a reason for his thoughts.

Assuming 6 pull outs in a 1 km stretch wasn't an exaggeration..

I don't see how it presents a problem in this case for anyone to turn vehicles around, especially on a deactivated FSR, and respect where it is due, but it was indeed petty nonsense to 'ticket' your vehicles..

But it serves no purpose arguing the point, then or now..

Just smile and wave, smile and wave..
