Variation On a Law Prof Favorite: No Motorized Vehicles in the Park

An irresistible law prof favorite: a statute prohibits vehicles in the park.  Can you bring in a bicycle?  A stroller?  Or, as I remember one of my own law profs asking, a wheel chair?  Of course, the exercise was all about interpretation.  We never mentioned the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  Here's a variation on the theme: disabled vets sue New York State Department of Environmental Conservation under ADA because the statute that does not allow "motorized vehicles" in Adirondack Park, preventing them from accessing a number of scenic lakes.
