Automated Vehicles on Protected Mainland sign now

This petition addresses the misuse and exploitation of Linden Land and designated rail, road, and water routes on the Mainland by individuals who have set precedents for themselves. We believe these lands were intended for first-hand use by all Second Life Residents (aka customers). We also believe that autoreturn rules set on these properties were intended to prevent rezzed objects and unoccupied vehicles from cluttering these routes and have been bypassed by these users with scripts in an act to violate the wishes of the estate owner (Governor Linden, Linden Department of Public Works, et al).

It should be mentioned that our concerns and objections do *not* pertain to official, Linden-created projects (ex. Bay City Trolley or Bay City Water Trolley, Blake Sea Ferry, Zindra Monorail) or condoned projects such as the GSLR ferry service from Purple to Cecropia (which does not pass through parcel zoned regions), Nautilus City tour boat, or transportation running on privately owned property or in cooperation with landowners such as the GSLR and flights from Abbotts Aerodrome.

1. While not exclusive, the following user's activities are a key focus for our concerns:

AnnMarie, whose avatar names include AnnMarie OToole, AnnMarie Oleander, and AnnMarie Resident

This user has managed to dominate mainland routes with dozens of heavily scripted rezzers, which output a variety of unmanned vehicles at regular intervals.

- These vehicles are heavily scripted (an average dozen scripts per vehicle) and are often accompanied with sound and excessive particle emissions.

- these vehicles are not phantom. They push resident riders - those not discouraged from riding anymore altogether - and pedestrians off roads, often into unfriendly terrain such as banlines and ejection borders. When not pushed aside, residents are dragged. Often residents crash.

These vehicles are output from so many locations that they often form a procession.

There are no Right of Way parameters set to prevent these from riding into water, onto SLRR tracks, unpaved paths, or regions where a community has denied the development of roads (ex Dammastock).

AnnMarie's vehicles are prone to encroachment. In addition to their frequently getting stuck on privately owned property, several rezzers were found to blatantly target protected land and park a vehicle on Linden land for several minutes before riding off unoccupied.

- Her vehicles also serve to work around rules pertaining to network advertising and adfarming. Anyone who chooses to ride them "for free" is very soon solicited to purchase the vehicle and given a landmark.

- Weapons use. One of the vehicles is a tank. There is no warning to the user that clicking the tank results in an attack by missiles. Confirmed this occurs on "protected" land.

- AnnMarie's scripted vehicles bypass autoreturn rules. This is a clear violation of terms, and to many of us see this as an effort to intentionally create a nuisance by allowing vehicles to persist.

- We propose that anyone who offers vehicles for residential use set them to rez as phantom and temporary. Very simply: if there is no one to use an automated, unofficial vehicle, they should derez and not ride the roads; if someone gets out of an automated vehicle, it should derez within the normal alotted time.

- Copyright infringement. Several rezzing locations are identified as belonging to the "SL transportation Corp" and owns a group called "SL Transit Authority"

- Public rezzing Zones should not be exploited to bypass temp use or used as starting points for a vehicle rezzer.

- We want to be sure that these violations issues (encroachment, right-of-way, object littering, mobile adfarming, pushing, weapons assault, excessive use of region resources, etc) are addressed and enforced to ensure that these vehicles or others do not remain on roads intended for first-hand use so that residents can enjoy these roads and routes for themselves.

- If AnnMarie or others wish to offer a click-to-drive service, it must be compliant with our above request for phantom, temporary, and subject to land's autoreturn policy. She is more than welcome to sell scripted vehicles for personal use from vendors ON HER PROPERTY like any other resident so long as there are no additional violations for using other creators' builds.

AnnMarie and others who have designs on creating their personal automated transportation system should consider a private estate of there own, where they can do whatever they wish on their own roadways.
