It is illegal to operate an OHV:

  • At speeds that are unsafe for the operating conditions
  • Within 150 feet of an occupied residence without permission from the owner

If you encounter bikers, horseback riders, hikers, or others, you must:

  • Immediately slow to a minimum safe operating speed.
  • Give the person the right-of-way.
  • Pass only when it can be done with complete safety.
  • Wait until you are at least 50 feet away from the person before accelerating.
