ATV Bylaw Amended

Council has authorized a bylaw amendment that regulates all-terrain vehicles (ATV) and off-road vehicles (ORV) on county roads. In June 2013, the county adopted a bylaw regarding specific ATVs on county roads, excluding Perth, Carleton Place and Almonte. As of July 1, 2015, amendments were made to the Highway Traffic Act Ontario Regulation 135-15 that allow for additional types of ORVs and ATVs that meet off-highway industry standards, including two-up ATVs, side-by-side ATVs and utility terrain vehicles. These additional types may now travel along permitted provincial highways and on municipal roads where a municipal bylaw exists to allow it. County roads within Perth, Carleton Place and Almonte continue to be restricted. Please CLICK HERE to view the new bylaw.
