Read up on a concept called "Govt Tort Liability" - you can't sue the state for negligence except in certain, narrow circumstances (and ORV idiocy isn't one).

Because private citizens and businesses aren't protected by Govt Tort Liability, they CAN be sued for allowing (or failing to "aggressively enough" try to prevent) stupidity on their property.

btw, I am not a practicing attorney. I have met Joumana Kayrouz, however...

Actions in an ORV park or trail aren't among those allowed.

Government <> Private Citizens/Organizations

Rules enforcement is to prevent the place from becoming the wild west.
