Riverside County sheriff’s deputies patrolled more than 100 square-miles of off-road territory Saturday, looking to disperse illegal riding near Hemet, Perris, Corona and south of Riverside.

The Riverside County Off-Highway Vehicle Enforcement Team patrolled unincorporated areas off Gilman Springs Road, in the Temescal Wash, Darwin Canyon, Lake Mathews and near Mead Valley. Sheriff’s deputies are cracking down on excessive noise and illegal driving, according to a release.

Deputies cited nine riders for illegal riding an issued warnings and brochures where legal riding is allowed. Future patrols are planned throughout the year.

“It’s frustrating having a hunt ruined by people riding ATVs where off-road vehicle use is prohibited. Many ATVs look the same so there’s no way to identify violators when reporting the incident to law enforcement. There should be a requirement that off-road vehicles used on public lands have license plates or large decals. Any ATV user who follows the law and land management directives on where they can and can not use these machines should have no objection to this type of identification.”
