WHEREAS in numerous places in the RM of Duck Lake there are issues with ATVs and UTVs destroying the integrity of the grid roads through erratic driving; and

WHEREAS the All-Terrain Vehicles Act sets forth regulations regarding the operation of ATVs but does not require licenses, registrations, or the displaying of license plates; and

WHEREAS the RCMP have difficulty enforcing this legislation when there are complaints about infractions since it is difficult to identify the driver if they are wearing a helmet and it is difficult to identify the ATV or UTV other than by color; and

WHEREAS the Snowmobile Act requires registration of the snow mobile and the displaying of a license plate in order to drive the snowmobile on land other than private land.

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the Provincial Government to amend the ATV Act to include UTV’s and include registration, licensing, and license plate display for ATV/UTV’s, the same as the Snow Mobile Act.
