Dispatch from the Undisputed Motorhead Capitol of the West

Jon Kovash

If you recreate in Moab much, you’ve probably noticed the increasing number of ATVs and UTVs on both roads and trails in the area. And you’ve probably noticed that they’re LOUD. In a special created by radio producers Jon Kovash and Josie Kovash, Moab community members fed up with noise and other impacts associated with these vehicles speak out about quality of life issues, community health, and the environment.

This story originally aired on KZMU.
