Default Alpena county looking at going ORV Open on road shoulders.

12-20-06 [ORV/ATV ON ROAD SHOULDERS - RD COMMIS SUPPORT]
THE ALPENA COUNTY ROAD COMMISSION IS ON RECORD SUPPORTING LEGISLATION THAT WOULD ALLOW OFF-ROAD AND ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLES TO OPERATE ON THE SHOULDERS OF COUNTY ROADS. BUT MEMBERS ARE ASKING FOR SOME CONDITIONS. EARLY NEXT YEAR LEGISLATORS ARE EXPECTED TO INTRODUCE MEASURES IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE TO REGULATE ORV'S AND ATV'S ON COUNTY ROAD SHOULDERS IN THE U-P AND NORTHERN LOWER MICHIGAN. SPONSORS SAY THE BILLS PROTECT COMMISSIONS FROM LIABILITY AND ALLOWS FOR FINES AND REPAIRS COSTS FOR DAMAGE TO THE ENVIRONMENT OR A ROADWAY. ROAD COMMISSIONS WOULD ALSO BE ABLE TO CLOSE UP TO 30-PERCENT OF COUNTY ROADS TO ORV TRAFFIC TO PROTECT PUBLIC SAFETY AND THE ENVIRONMENT. ALPENA ROAD COMMISSIONERS PASSED A RESOLUTION SUPPORTING THE CONCEPT. BUT THEY NOTED THE COMMISSION SHOULD BE ABLE TO CHOOSE WHICH ROADS ARE DESIGNATED AND THAT FEES COLLECTED SHOULD GO BACK TO THE ROAD COMMISSIONS.
