as far as the rocks and sticks... it says a speed limit of 25mph. thats what, like 20 ft. and you up to speed? and for the jumping driveways and such... whats the difference between that, and letting the state re-dig your ditches every 2 yrs, like they do here.

i support anything that has to do with promoting atv/orv use. its about time a law gets passed allowing something, as opposed to restricting something. this law should also allow you to drive your license plate free trail rig to be driven on the shoulder to the fuel station. not just atvs/dirt bikes.

But at least bikes and quads can turn / avoid pedestrians and cars without the aid of snow if need be :miff: :tonka:

Problem with that is most trail rigs don't fit well on the shoulders and what would prevent people from unregistering and plating their DD's to abuse that privilege?

who is gonna unplate their DD so they can drive on the shoulder at 25 mph on their way to work? the shoulder is officially supposed to be wide enough to have a vehicle on it, whether that is paved or ditch doesnt matter.

umm ok so not a DD but what about your trailered off road toy, I don't really care to plate and insure that but I do just so that I can legally park it at my house in the city (thanks Auburn Hills). I would love to roll it off the trailer at the start of the weekend and then drive into town when I need to fuel it up. No plate, ins, reg etc.... The state would never allow all of that money to go up in smoke.
