Great news for ATVers in the area. Beginning July 1st, more types of ATVs, including side by side ATVs, utility terrain vehicles, and two-up ATVs will be allowed to use the shoulder of public roads.
All riders will also be required to wear a helmet and use a seatbelt or foot rests. Violation tickets will not be issued until after September 1st so people have time to learn about the new rules.
Steven Del Duca, the Minister of Transportation, said in a statement: “Our government recognizes the importance of a vibrant, sustainable and safe powersports sector in Ontario, and we support providing Ontarians with more options to safely explore our vast province.”
