MJOC Code of Ethics

MJOC Code of Ethics

Since the club first started way back in 1997, the members of the Melbourne Jeep Owners Club have always endeavoured to follow the 4WD Code of Ethics from 4WD Victoria (link) and Tread Lightly principles.

To further emphasise and encourage our members to keep this code in mind when visiting the bush and on club trips and events the committee have revisited the code and revised it to create our own to better portray the clubs image and to remind members of the importance of caring for the environment to ensure we continue to enjoy it for future generations.

MJOC CODE OF ETHICS
  1. Protect and respect the public image of the club
  2. Drive in a safe and responsible manner by only driving on formed tracks and in approved, permitted areas
  3. Follow and respect safe driving and recovery protocols
  4. Care for the environment by avoiding sensitive areas to protect them for use by future generations
  5. Avoid damaging tracks by minimising excessive wheel spin which creates deeper holes and ruts
  6. Leave no trace of your visit – by leaving places, picnic spots and camp sites cleaner than you found them
  7. Respect the rights, peace and solitude of other recreational users
  8. When driving in or visiting cultural, heritage or environmental areas take care to protect and respect them and abide by any applicable laws or regulations
  9. Extinguish campfires with water until cold and follow all fire restrictions
  10. Respect the club Trip Leader and club convoy procedures
