There’s good news for off-roaders in Perth County. The Ontario government has passed new laws making on-road access easier.
Starting on July 1st more types of ORVs and ATVs will be allowed to use the shoulder of public roads. That includes two-up ATVs, side-by-side ATVs and utility-terrain vehicles.
New safety measures are coming in as well. All riders — including drivers and passengers of all ages — will have to wear a helmet and use a seatbelt or foot rests, where applicable.
An education period will take place until September 1st before tickets start getting handed out.
