For several years, Delegate Lawrence A. LaMotte, D-Carroll, Baltimore, worked with motorcycling and recreational riding organizations in an effort to reach an acceptable compromise for legislation regulating all-terrain vehicles.After some fine-tuning, LaMotte said it seemed that the motorcycling groups were becoming more conciliatory toward a proposal designed to reduce damage caused by ATV riders who trespass on private and public lands and to improve safety for the riders.Over the last five years, the bill has died for a variety of reasons -- among them, motorcycling groups' objections to a metal licenseplate and complaints that ATV owners had no place to ride.
