Utah law currently allows ‘street legal’ ATVs and UTVs to drive on public roads. As the industry gets more popular, there are more vehicles on the road, and more noise reverberating across impacted communities. This program, by independent producers Jon Kovash and Josie Kovash, aims to capture Moab residents' mounting frustration around quality of life issues and community health.

 

Originally from Wyoming, Jon Kovash has practiced journalism throughout the intermountain west. He was editor of the student paper at Denver’s Metropolitan College and an early editor at the Aspen Daily News. He served as KOTO/Telluride’s news director for fifteen years, during which time he developed and produced Thin Air, an award-winning regional radio news magazine that ran on 20 community stations in the Four Corners states. In Utah his reports have been featured on KUER/SLC and KZMU/Moab. Kovash is a senior correspondent for Mountain Gazette and plays alto sax in “Moab’s largest garage band."
