off-piste in the Parc du Pilat annoys farmers

This is a message that the farmers and fishermen of Pilat Rhodanien want to convey, tired of seeing motor vehicles, such as quads, 4x4s or motorcycles, speed by, with the arrival of the snow.

However, the regulations are clear: off-piste driving with a motorized vehicle is prohibited by law. Off-piste is prohibited to preserve fragile ecosystems: under the snow there may be crops whose future is compromised by the passage of vehicles. And small animals and plants can get squashed. Waterways are also considered off-track and off-road for vehicles. Respecting the law, we protect biodiversity and the quality of water resources.

Violators face fines of € 150 to € 1,500, with immediate immobilization and seizure of the vehicle.
