OK I think that cool heads should set some standards here. For example, a family camping gets caught in a flash flood through no fault of their own. Happens a lot more often than one would think. But not in the same league as a rock or mountain climber. These people are taking great risks for self gratification and when they get in trouble rescue workers and cops have to really put themselves at risk to save an idiot. Making the idiot responsible for the cost of the rescue and any injuries suffered by the rescuers might make some of them think about what they are doing. Kinda like the ice on the lakes here. Each year DNR tells everyone when it's safe to walk on then drive on the lakes. Every year we have multiple people go through the ice because they ignored the warnings. Them cops and volunteer fire and rescue people have to risk their lives trying to save that idiot that just had to go fishing. Or search and RECOVERY (not rescue) divers have to try to find the bodies and recover vehicles and equipment. The same thing happens in reverse each spring. No deaths this year near me but more than one truck through the ice.
Here they passed a law that says when the local or state law enforcement says "no travel" that's what it means. So if say you go out and get stuck and pull out your handy dandy cell phone to call for help........they can bill you for the cost of the plow truck and operator to get out to you, the cost of the wrecker and the cost of the cop going out there with the plow, both mileage on the cop car and the cops time......so the cop can write you a rather expensive ticket for being out there. Well is they can do that cause you were determined to prove your manhood they should be able to bill you when do something else stupid too.
