No, it's to test the public's willingness to <i>accept</i> the fees. The proper way to show non-acceptance is to complain to Congress.

That is a ticket.

That's a lie. The court has already decided that issue and it is the court's opinion that counts--not yours.

That's hardly enough money for it to be worth their trouble.

Yeah, but you've already shown you are a fanatic in your opposition.

They've always had a dependence of vendors.

That doesn't follow.

All I see is your paranoia and fanaticism.

Do you see how lame <i>your</i> answer is? Why do you conclude there is some right to park in the National Forests for free?

They do pay. The recreational users are only being asked to pay a little more for their additional use of the land. That's only fair.
