Reminder of Our Stance
Public Relations can be a pain in the butt. Remember every picture that is taken can be twisted to fit the needs of the person using it. Be sure to keep an eye on your posts and pictures so they cannot be used in a negative light. There are people who want to damage the credibility of off road enthusiasts and see our sport out lawed. Please do not give them the ammunition they need. Remember that even on public roads, if there are big ruts, people in stock vehicles can’t access them. This can cause the general public to view all off roaders in a negative light. Education is a huge part being a responsible off road enthusiast, learn, teach, and preach the Tread Lightly principles. Try to teach others the proper and respectable way to wheel.
