4x4
There are a lot of 4x4 cowboys in South Africa, (as well as those who ride as they canít be bothered to walk) who are ruining our beauty.†
Who wants to see deep wheel ruts gouged across the beach and natural grasslands.†
Aside from the ruination of beauty, think of all those insects and/or plants which get squashed as the vehicle passes over their habitat.† This destroys the chain of life.
Wheel ruts create barriers to the passage of small creatures traversing the surface, and even to the efficient dispersal of wind blown seeds that roll along the surface to new destinations.† They fall into the ruts and there they tend to stay.
