RESOLUTION No. 5
REGARDING TRAIL MARKING
WHEREAS, this Association has adopted the report of the Subcommittee on Traffic Control and Safety, recommending the immediate selection of transcontinental and interstate routes from the Federal-aid road system, said roads to be continously designated by means of standard highway marking signs and protected by standard traffic warning signs; and
WHEREAS, this system of highways when established and marked will satisfy the demand for marked routes on the part of transcontinental and interstate traffic, this meeting the need which has been met in the past in a measure by the marked trails established by the reputable trails associations; and
WHEREAS, many individuals have sought to capitalize the popular demand for interstate or cross-country routes by organizing trails, collecting large sums of money from our citizens and giving practically no servce in return, with resulting discredit to the reputable trails associations which have heretofore rendered distinct public service by stimulating highway improvement, maintenance, and marking; now, therefore be it
RESOLVED: That this Association hereby recommends to the several States that the reputable trails associations now existing be permitted to continue their markings during their period of usefulness, pending the establishing of the proposed marking systems and policies now in force in the several States; and be it further
RESOLVED: That no trail association be permitted to establish further routes on State or Federal-aid routes; and be it further
RESOLVED: That we hereby warn the citizens of this nation to investigate carefully the responsibility of trails organizers and demand convincing evidence insuring proper expenditure of funds before contributing to or otherwise supporting such agencies.
