Off-Highway Vehicle Riders Face Deadline in Nevada

Posted: Updated:

Nevadans face a Monday deadline to register their off-highway vehicles under a new state law, but only a fraction of owners have complied with the law so far.

Paul Jackson of the Nevada Commission on Off-Highway Vehicles says 12,335 OHVs were registered as of mid-June with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles, less than 1% of the estimated 260,000 in the state.

He told the Reno Gazette-Journal (http://on.rgj.com/1aqc3gW ) that he expects registrations to pick up considerably after the Monday deadline arrives and violators can be cited.

The registration program, enacted by the 2009 Legislature, was designed to end Nevada's status as the lone western state that did not register the vehicles.

Supporters say the program will help halt irresponsible use of the vehicles while protecting off-highway sports at the same time.

OHVs include all-terrain vehicles and motorcycles, dune buggies and snowmobiles.
