Indeed. I'm an avid 4 wheeler, and out west in BC 4 wheeling is looked down upon by many. Crossing water that is part of or leads to a fish spawning area is punishable by fines up to $1,000,000. The 4x4 club I belong to had a meeting with some Fisheries officers, and these officers had all sorts of pictures of such water crossings taken from our own website. Licence plates were clearly visible. The officers were great, they weren't out for blood or anything. A couple of them were 4 wheelers themselves. It was pretty educational though.
The powers that be are out there, and if you give them an easy way to nail you they will use it against you.
