It looks like the NJ State Park Service is looking to ban all military vehicles from areas they control. This could include public roads through state parks and forests - not just off road use.
Although I was assured this was not meant for the law abiding MV owner who rides through the parks, it gives the NJ State Park Police huge latitude in interpreting and enforcing the law.
So a Jeep Wrangler would be OK, but a Willys MB would not be OK. A Humvee would be banned but a Hummer H1 would be OK. It makes little sense.
Read the propsed change below and contact your state representatives!

Such vehicles include, but are not limited to, a motor vehicle having more than two axles and capability of four-wheel drive, an ATV, military-designed or surplus vehicle (whether or not modified for civilian use), or an unlicensed or unregistered motor vehicle."
