A poll vote is currently underway on the iomtoday.co.im website.
Your vote will be registered and the IOM Government take notice of these polls.
A new group called Green Lanes Our Heritage is calling on government to take positive action to protect tracks in the Manx countryside from damage caused by off-road vehicles. Do you support their stance?
Yes - some tracks are unusable now and a strategy needs to be put in place.
No - off-road vehicles are free to use the tracks. Itís up to the Department of Infrastructure to maintain them.
Not sure - it would be good to protect them, but we also have to think of the tourists they attract and the cost of putting a system in place when there are more pressing matters to attend to.
(I would have posted the link, but I'm not able to, being newly registered and please note that the poll changes daily)
But off road vehicles destroy tracks making them only useful for off roaders and horses. So I'd like to see horses added to the poll.
is there a 'who cares' option?
Thanks to anyone who took the time to vote, with 66% against closing the lanes and just 33% wanting to spoil the fun.
It may only be a little thing but when politicians look at opinion polls it's good to know they get the right message.
