STRENGTHENING REGULATIONS ON ATVs:
Amid complaints about increased reckless and noisy ATVs and dirt bikes on City streets, the Code and Regulation Committee tonight passed amendments to current ordinances to strength regulations on these non-highway vehicles.
The revisions to the ordinance state that non-highway vehicles are declared nuisances and reinforced that they are illegal on public streets. These vehicles are now specifically subject to impound from public and private property, and they must be registered with the City of Rockford.
In addition, these amendments make it unlawful to keep or store unregistered non-highway vehicles or non-highway vehicles used in violation of the ordinance, as well as declare it unlawful to fuel non-highway vehicles, or allowed them to be fueled, unless on a trailer.
“ATVs on our streets are a safety concern for not only the riders, but everyone they share the streets with,” says Mayor McNamara.
“By declaring illegal ATVs nuisances under our ordinance, we are able to provide better clarity to our residents and officers and provide better tools for enforcement.”
The amendments will be up for full City Council approval on Monday, August 1.
