"It will probably not take a lot of dumb things to happen to give the opposition an argument to get this turned around again. So, I caution anyone and everyone to obey the laws. Buy the appropriate licenses, permits and stamps. Not only the "law" with regard to Herp collecting but also the traffic laws. For example, do not make illegal U-turns, turn in front of other cars, shine bright lights into other cars, block the roadway, stop in the road and leave your vehicle, shine spotlights across the lanes of traffic, and so on. ""

The things you have mentioned have always been dumb things that cause people to think snake hunters are inconsiderate or unsafe. However, I believe that your comment about obeying traffic laws is misplaced when discussing the lifting of the ROW ban. You shouldn't be in your vehicle spotlighting, nor should there be any reason for you to stop in the road to leave your vehicle. You should park your car well off the road, put on your vest and walk the roadside, correct? The only time I could think of that you might stop along the highway would be to 'observe' a reptile as you were traveling between areas where you are walking road cuts, or to collect insects, right? Seems if everyone follows the new regulations to the letter then there won't be any of these traffic infractions.

I also wonder if these new regulations are going to see a mass conversion of experienced entomologists to herpetologists as we saw the reverse of four years ago.
