Thanks to Rich J. for pointing out this chart from this GAO report:
It definitely tells a story. Not a good one IMHO. BLM land is important and conceivably people following the rules there is equally important. And my observations on public land recreation is that many people don’t follow rules unless they think they might be enforced. It would be great to have a guest post from a BLM or FS field law enforcement person (or recently retired) and hear from them how to improve the situation. If you have LE friends, please share this request.
