It is the 4x4 owners' fault that legislation has been implemented that prevents them from further scarring the natural environment.
"Ignorant or irresponsible 4x4 owners are the culprits, their actions have caused massive scarring of a once pristine landscape."
In the latest issue of the leading 4x4 route guide, Drive Out, editor Geoff Dalglish asks all 4x4 owners to repair the damage that's been done. Dalglish says that attitudes towards the environment need to be changed and that it is the responsibility of all 4x4 owners.
Drive Out publisher, Naomi Herselman, says the latest issue of Drive Out has been committed to preserving nature and making a difference. Herselman says Drive Out will make people aware about nature and will help them to make the most of the routes they visit.
"We are lucky to be living in one of the richest biological treasure chests in the world and it is our responsibility to see it protected," writes Dalglish.
The latest issue of Drive Outlooks in detail at quad bikes and focuses on the routes that accommodate this action-packed activity.
The latest Drive Out also features a comprehensive buyer's guide of GPS receivers and is, according to Herselman, a "must" for any 4x4 adventurer wanting this fun accessory.
Drive Out 2003 is published by New Media Publishing. The guide will be available from July 28 at R34.95
