  1. There will unfortunately be more cases like this… now that Salem Lakes is also allowing people to drive ATVs, Golf Carts and other toys on their streets and properties. Sheriff Zoerner objected…. residents objected… yet the rednecks won.

    Roads are for real vehicles, not toys.

      1. No. They’re just assholes who think they can pick and choose which rules of the road to follow while wearing stupid clothes.

        1. comment of the year right here. you must not realize we assholes wear stupid clothes to piss off true patriots even more.

          1. So, ignoring stop signs while demanding full rights makes one a, “true patriot”? That’s why folks celebrate when a member of the spandex mafia goes splat.

      2. The new rule says nothing about bikes. In fact, it’s because people are too lazy to walk or ride bikes, so they want to drive children’s toys all over the roads. Or send their teenagers on them to fetch their cigarettes.

        ATVs, Golf Carts and other toys need to stay in the yards. People need to grow up.

        1. Nope, I’ll keep riding my 4-wheeler where ever I want now. I’ll mix it up and take my horse out for a spin too. Have a great day!

    2. You do realize fatal accidents happen in “real vehicles” too right? This is America we should have more freedoms not less….. I hear they dont allow any of this stuff in Europe, maybe you should look into moving there.

      1. You realize “real vehicles” cost tens of thousands more with all the safety requirements, and should a “real vehicle” be involved in even a partially, “at fault” collision, it’ll get hit with a much higher lawsuit due to the choice of driving an “less safe/protective vehicle” on the same roads? Also, the ATV toys are often an impediment/hazard to normal traffic flow on highways where they are restricted to lower speeds, often 35mph in a 45mph zone. Shame on our so-called leaders.

  2. Lazy ass people who can’t walk to the store… get on your shitty golf cart and cut across traffic. Everyone expects nothing less of you.

  3. And it will happen again ! And again ……

    I remember when Paddock Lake codified its inability to control golf carts on their roads. They just put a bunch of rules on paper and said go ahead.

    Salem did the same thing and they got a grand total of 2 golf carts registered. Now they are putting a bunch of rules on paper again to allow virtually anything on its roads.

    Seems this was a self inflicted single vehicle crash. I refrain from calling it an accident because accidents are when someone else screws up and hits you.

    By the rules any vehicle should only be doing 25 mph on a residential village roadway. And not driving on the road and ditches interchangeably. You don’t see cars driving in ditches and fields at 25 mph hour or more.
    Was alcohol involved ? If not it probably was excessive speed. Imagine if it was both ?

    It’s one thing to turn your your head on watching people ride unlicensed vehicles on the roads mostly because enforcement is all but impossible, but it’s another thing to then codify for the most part this “illegal activity” into an allowable ordinance.

    Salem recently installed stop signs on Rock Lake Road. All because of a handful of residents who purchased property on a lake are regretting their own decisions. Now people who had no problems are experiencing problems because of the laws of “unintended consequences”. That road has been there forever. In the exact configuration. Yet they still bought those “Lake Front Homes”.
    Because those properties were priced to reflect the known road problem they only need to look in the mirror to see who is responsible for the problem.

    Like the useless golf cart and soon to be ATV ordinances, these problems are about enforcement.
    Salem needs to stop trying to cater to every non compliance issue and leave things alone.
    By giving in and saying it’s ok to do these things, without being able to enforce anything about these changes, then you are shifting the blame on the village instead of the people who have put themselves in these dangerous situations, positions and places.

    Take down the Stop Signs.
    Repeal the golf cart and ATV ordinances.
    Admit these were mistakes !
    And then increase the police budget to be able to respond to calls from people who witness illegal vehicles and activities on the roads. In this case it’s hard to believe that this lady was only doing 25 mph. And even if she was, with no car structure and seat belt, does anyone think she would be dead if she was only doing 25 in a car ? Drunk or not.

      1. More like it ?

        It’s the apathy in voting for issues that create stupid outcomes like this. Just because you got your side out to vote on this issue doesn’t mean that more are for it. It means even more don’t care !

    2. Couldn’t agree with you more.. on your whole entire article!
      The stop sign at rock lake road is an absolute joke, some crappy people who reside there complained and now folks who travel this way every single day are getting tickets, and the county is making the police officers enforce it because 1-3 Karen’s keep complaining! so if you live there and are reading this. Move! go back to IL! Or shut up!!

      Second!!!! The article fails to mention the female was intoxicated! Her family didn’t go check for her? She was just missing on this four wheeler for how long?!! Where are the details! She isn’t innocent by any means if you can’t be responsible – don’t ride! Bc she probably died from a head trauma ?! No helmet! Hopefulyl someone teachers kid her to be better

  4. Imagine the tragic scenario of a ATV rider running over a small child that darts out into the street killing them at 25 mph.

    I’m not a lawyer but, if it is allowed by ordinance that that ATV is there, then who’s responsible ?

    By that I mean that it is more difficult to see these smaller vehicles and harder to protect these children who by the most part expect to be able to play “in the street” in front of their home in a residential neighborhood.
    We all know the call “CAR” that all kids say when they are playing in the street. Then everyone moves off until it goes by and then back on the street they go.
    But a ATV which can go double the speed of a golf cart and can come from any yard or off road area is much harder to see.

    ATVS and golf carts are a bad idea !

    1. Then why have ordinances ?

      While this death is not on the village, then what’s the purpose of the ordinance at all ?

      The cops aren’t doing any enforcement.
      Even if they’re called, the errant rider is long gone by the time a deputy shows up.

      I was told many years ago that most ordinances are incase there are violations that are so absurd there must be something in writing to enforce the violation. Otherwise it’s look the other way.
      Live and let live.

      This lady and everyone else who rides the ATVS are free to ride them. I don’t care. But don’t ask me to agree with your right to on a public roadway when these machines don’t fit the standard of accident safety.

  5. Why doesn’t the government keep us safe? Safety isn’t my responsibility, it’s the government’s responsibility to keeeep uuuus saaafe – bah bahhhh bah. Freedoms are dangerous and need to be taken away! People should live in high rise buildings that have all necessities within the building. Need groceries? – Go the the grocery store in the building. Then there is no need to leave the building or to own a car. Yes! If the government would just force people to stay home, they would be so much safer! Think of all the injury and death that could be avoided. Freedom means the freedom to be responsible for your own safety, and people certainly can’t be trusted with that!

    1. All I’m saying is that the Village should not sanction what is normally not allowed.

      If you want to ride your go cart on the road, go ahead. And if you hurt yourself or someone else, accept the consequences. Legal or medical.

      But the Village shouldn’t promote access without being able to enforce their directives.

    2. Yes !
      I agree ! Really

      Just that this freedom to ride a ATV or golf cart that almost always carries riders who aren’t aware enough or prepared to understand what the physics of motion and lack of seatbelts can do.

      The driver is always prepared for what action and movement they are doing but the passengers, not so much. Then again you are the parent. You are responsible for everything that happens. Including when you allow others to drive.

      This is a cluster f..k of being “allowed” to do bad things with bad consequences with the “freedom” to do bad things with bad consequences. Your choice.
      Just don’t blame me complaining about paying for educating your now disabled children who wouldn’t be disabled if you didn’t allow them to drive on the roads and bang their heads on the pavement

    1. I am okay with sharing the road with others (ATV drivers, Bicyclists, and Golf cart drivers) however these individuals should also follow the rules of the road like all drivers are required to.

  6. You whiners are prob the same ones yelling at others at the park for not “masking up”. You do you, imma do me.

  7. Everyone who is bad mouthing this is a horrible person. This was a great person in a bad situation. You should be ashamed of yourselves being cockroaches on a computer. Get a life! There are real life issues that have become a reality after this. There are a lot of hearts broken and lives changed.

  8. Isn’t this the very subdivision that pushed and pushed and pushed for many attempts to allow atvs etc on the roadways. They have been in the news for years.
    Fitting. Sad but fitting.
