ATV'S should be allowed on road shoulders
- BY-LAW COMMITTEE
LAKESHORE TOWN COUNCIL HAD RECENTLY BEGAN TO ADDRESS ALLOWING ALL TERRAIN VEHICLE PERMISSION TO TRAVEL ON THE GRAVEL SHOULDERS OF THE COUNTY SIDE ROADS. AT THE LAST TOWN COUNCIL MEETING THE BY-LAW COMMITTEE STATED THAT THE OPP ARE OPPOSED TO BY LAW BUT THEY ARE ADDRESSING SAFETY ISSUES INVOLVING TRAVELLING ON PAVED ROAD WAYS. ATV ARE NOT EQUIPTED FOR ROAD TRAVEL DUE TO THINGS SUCH AS LACK OF REAR VIEW / SIDE MIRRORS AND TYPE OF TIRES WHICH MAY EFFECT THE HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS. WE ARE NOT ASKING FOR ATV TO BE ALLOWED TO TRAVEL THE HIGHWAYS BUT THE SHOULDERS OF THE CONCESSION ROADS.
LOCAL ATV ENTHUASISTS ARE PETIONING THE TOWN OF LAKESHORE REQUEST AN ATV BY-LAW BE PASSED ALLOWING RIDERS TO TRAVEL ON THE CONCESSIONS SHOULDERS.
