MORONGO BASIN Illegal off-roading has diminished in the past four years, data from the county Sheriff's Department suggest.

"Other than little anomalies, we have seen a dramatic decrease in number of complaints from 2007 until now," Sgt. James Porter said last month.

Complaints about motorcycle riders in county areas went from 679 in the year 2007 to 227 last year a decrease of about a third. In Yucca Valley, complaints dropped from 388 calls in 2007 to 140 calls in 2011. In Twentynine Palms, they went from 225 calls to 127.

Five years ago, it seemed off-roading through residential areas was the norm, Porter said. Today, the scene is different. "It's getting harder and harder to find people riding off-highway vehicles in dirt-road neighborhoods," Porter said.
