Raymond adopts ordinance allowing All Terrain Vehicles on some streets

You can now drive your ATV on some streets in Raymond – as long as you have the proper paperwork. The city announced yesterday that they have approved ordinance 1823 which authorizes the use of Wheeled All-Terrain Vehicles on city streets within the city limits of Raymond with a number of requirements and restrictions. This ordinance will take effect on February 24, 2014.

ATV’s/ORV’s must have a vehicle inspection form (Wheeled All-Terrain Vehicle Declaration) completed by an authorized ATV/ORV Dealer or repair shop.

The City of Raymond has three qualified repair shops: NAPA, Steve’s Front End and AP Auto. After an inspection is completed the form must be kept with vehicle and registration at all times. In the future this form will be required to receive an ON-Road tab from DOL.

ATV’s/ORV’s must have required equipment to pass the vehicle inspection: Headlight(s), Tail Light, Brake Light, Turn Signals (if riding after dark), Reflectors, Horn, Mirror(s), Brakes, Seat Belt (If an Utility Vehicle), Windshield (if applicable) and a Spark Arrester and Muffler. If your vehicle fails any one of the equipment requirements your vehicle is not approved for On-Road use.

Without the required inspection form, the ATV/ORV will be treated as an unauthorized vehicle. if you are stopped while riding on a city street you are subject to an infraction for OFF-Road vehicle on roadway.

Ordinance 1823 is ONLY approved for city streets that are 35 mph or less.

You MUST have a valid driver’s license (Direct Supervision is not allowed). Helmet is required. Insurance is not required.

Ordinance 1823 was created from the approval of House Bill 1632. ATV’s/ORV’s basically follow the Rules of the Road as a motorcycle.

The Raymond Police Department will be strictly enforcing Rules of the Road when dealing with ATV’s/ORV’s on city streets.

Nothing in this ordinance authorizes the use of ATV’s/ORV’s on Pacific County roads or city of South Bend streets.
