The Motivation Behind Business Rules: Example

I was hiking in a National Forest in Montana last week, sorta in the middle of nowhere, when I came across this sign. I have long preached capturing the motivation for business rules — and communicating it (when appropriate) — and here is an excellent example. These business rules aim toward achieving three explicit goals:
                        • To protect wildlife habitat area.
                        • To provide wildlife security.
                        • To reduce the spread of noxious weeds.
