Exclamation Discover Pass infraction overturned

Once again, the court has upheld the position that a Discover Pass is not required on a vehicle with a valid ORV permit while at a location where ORV use is legal.

This time it was Snohomish County District Court in Monroe hearing a case where a DNR law enforcement officer incorrectly cited a dual registered van that was parked at the Reiter trailhead.

Off the record, the judge did comment that there was nothing in this ruling that would stop the DNR from illegally applying the law again in the future.

Why would you? An ORV license is additional revenue to the state in roughly equivalent dollars. Then you add the fact that you only need, to my knowledge, a Discovery Pass if you intend to park a vehicle, i.e. camp or pulling dirt bikes, etc.

There is no reason for the state to get triple the revenue for use of public land.

The money does not go toward motorized offroad recreation.

From each $30 pass, only $2.40 goes to the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and they are not required to spend a penny of it on facilitating motorized recreation.
Most of the money goes to State Parks and none of that goes toward motorized recreation.

All of the ORV permit money (minus admin cut of the action) must go toward motorized offroad recreation. Instead of the $2.40 the DNR gets from each D-Pass, they get on average a bit over $9 from grants funded by the ORV permit revenue.

If you don't have an ORV permit you also need a D-Pass to ride trails on state managed public land too.
