Changes For Off-Road Vehicles

Several local legislators, including Sen. Phillip Wheeler, R-Pikeville, Sen. Johnny Ray Turner, D-Prestonsburg and Rep. Brandon Smith, R-Hazard, co-sponsored a bill this month to bring off-road vehicles under the state’s vehicle registration system.The bill defines an OHV as a “motorized vehicle that is designed to be primarily used for recreational purposes,” as having four or six tires, having a maximum speed of 35 miles per hour and is equipped with a “steering wheel, brakes, head lights, turn signals, a roll bar, seat belts, a working muffler, and a spark arrestor.”
