Exclamation Ohio's new ATV laws

I didn't see a spot on the board for Legislation so I figured I would post this here under Midwest. It looks like I stand corrected- by myself if none the less! I had a discussion with aslickmonnin on the trail the other day about the new laws pertaining to all atv's here in Ohio. They now need to be registered and have a new license plate on your atv- excluding atvs ridden on private land, that is not the case, I miss spoke, I wasn't reading the current ORC, even if you ride on private property, you need one. The new law does address this. Here is a link to a breakdown of the law by OSU extension office:

http://aede.osu.edu/programs/aglaw/d...uly%202009.pdf

It was explained to me by the BMV when I was there the other day that it is good for 3 years and will not be prorated. It does expire on Dec. 31 of the third year- therefore this year being almost over still counts as the first year even though it almost over, you still pay the full price, which I was told is $35.25 with all taxes and fees added in for my area.

Now, lets just hope the Bureaucrats use the monies wisley, as they are so honest!

I don't mind paying and being compliant, but I do really hope the attitude towards atv'ers in this state changes and the money is spent more on trails then on paperwork!

We must register and insure in NJ unless you ride on your own property. We have no legal place to ride, they are supposed to come up with three riding areas but when they do the registration is going to increase to fund the riding areas.
registration cost $17 a year
I may register in pa where I ride, one of the guys looked into this and said it can be done, as a out of state rider.

It is kind of frustrating. I too don't mind paying to be compliant but there needs to be better use of money, more opportunities to ride legally, and maybe a few less laws to 'protect' me. I'm fine with making my own decisions about whats safe for me and my 10 year old son.

I only ride on private land,( orv parks) my ranger was a salvage project so I have no paperwork for it. There for I dought I can get any of their money making tags. It is too wide to ride on public land anyway.

I don't think the side by side's are included, but their width does exclude them from some of the riding area doesn't it? I don't know, I am like you and try to ride in private areas! It is just a shame that a few rotten apples have to always ruin it for everyone else- we need less government and more vigil anti's!

Ohio does have a restriction of 50" wide. So as long as your under that your are good. I did notice that the Wayne National Forest requires the state plate and a sticker. That is because its a national forest not a state forest. Seasonal is $45, 3-day is $24, and daily is $12.

Here is the link to Wayne National Forest permit costs.
