減低開放路徑使用者間的衝突

Reducing Conflicts On Multi-use Trails / Roger McGehee

必須要有一個人以上才會產生衝突,
我對如何減低各種路徑使用者間的衝突有一些想法:
It takes more than one person to cause a conflict, so I have ideas for ALL trail users to help decrease the severity and amount of conflicts on multi-use trails and fire roads.

我們第一件要做的事就是—檢討一下我們的態度,
我們不要去評斷其他的路徑使用者。
不要去檢視他人的行為,大家不過就是出來享受自然和運動,
不管是健行、登山、騎馬或騎登山車。
各種型式的活動都一樣對土地產生衝擊,且都具有相同的權利義務。
沒有任何一種型式的使用者有權限制其他使用者。

The first thing that we must do is check our attitudes. We must not judge others who use the trail. Regardless of the manner in which they use the trail, they are basically out there to enjoy nature and to enjoy their sport, whether it be hiking, backpacking, horse riding, or mountain biking. These forms of trail use have been shown to be similar in impact, and are all valid ways in which people enjoy natural areas. Restricting any one group is a form of discrimination.

任何使用者都應彼此都看得到、聽得到對方,
越是移動快的使用者更應主動宣告他人,
避免他人因講手機、聊天或是做白日夢而沒注意到你的到來。
All trail users are responsible for being alert and for watching and listening for others. But the faster that a trail user is moving, the more alert that user needs to be. Headphones, loud conversations, and daydreaming contribute to a loss of alertness.

所有的路徑使用者應靠右,讓對向雙方可以輕易交會,
也避免雙方因猶豫不決而相互牽制。
All trail users should stay to the right of the trail. This allows people to approach and pass each other easily, and removes any indecision about the proper side on which to pass.

速度快的使用者在看不到對向的彎道應降低速度,
以避免嚇到他人。通常速度要低於8Km(5Mph),用車鈴也可幫助警告他人。
以下的狀況,表示你的速度過快了:
‧當你看到其他人而必須緊急煞車到車輪打滑時
‧他人對於你的迫近感到緊張
‧當你無法抬頭看他人而且微笑時
‧覺得快要失控了
Faster users should slow down when approaching blind curves so as to not surprise a user on the other side. Sometimes this requires a much slower speed than the customary 5 MPH. Bicyclists can help to warn others by ringing a bell. In general, you are riding too fast if:
*You must slide your tires to stop or slow down when you are surprised by the presence of other trail users.
*Other trail users seem nervous as you approach.
*You cannot look up and smile at other trail users as you pass.
*You feel out of control.

速度快的使用者應避免對他人引起煙塵或泥土。
Faster users should take care so as to avoid throwing dust or mud onto other users.

各種使用者必須適應其他使用者的存在,才不會引起不必要的恐慌。
有趣的一點是,單車騎士通常不怕其他的單車騎士,
健行的人也不會怕其他健行的人,騎馬的人也一樣。
對其他的使用者越熟悉就越不會害怕,多注意彼此間的相似性,而不是差異性。
Trail users need to get used to (desensitized) to other trail users. This will decrease fear. It is interesting to note that bicyclists are not afraid of other bicyclists, and that hikers are not afraid of other hikers, and that equestrians are not afraid of other equestrians. The more we know of each other, the less we fear each other. Concentrate on similarities — not differences.

我們都是因為相同的理由而在路徑相會:享受自然、享受我們的活動…。
We are all out there for the same reasons: To enjoy nature, and to enjoy what we are doing…

One thought on “減低開放路徑使用者間的衝突

  1. 這跟登山的LNT七大原則的最後一項所提一樣

    七.尊重其他的山林使用者

    在山林中高歌一曲也是令人暢快的事,布農族的八部合音(祈禱小米豐收歌)更是被譽為天籟,但是我們也應考慮到其他登山客(遊客)、山裡「原住民」(鳥獸)的權益。以下幾點是可供參考的一些想法與做法:

    ‧尊重其他的旅行者,及他人旅行的品質。
    ‧保持應有的禮貌,讓道給其他步道中的旅行者。
    ‧讓自然的當地聲音成為旅行的聲音,避免喧嘩。

    單車或登山都同是愛環境的旅者
