Default Arizona Throws down the gauntlet to other states for OHV use.

I was reading the bill and they have no problems giving all the access to OHVs as they posiblly can. they are going to make a fortune from it.

http://www.azgfd.gov/outdoor_recreat...islation.shtml
Update: For more than 80 years, sportsmen in Arizona have provided funding for wildlife and habitat management through the purchase of hunting and fishing licenses and tags. To date, off-highway vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts have not had the ability to pay for OHV recreational opportunities and the impacts associated with their sport. Now, House Bill 2443 – Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation User Fee, provides an opportunity for OHV users to ensure the future of their sport and help protect the state’s diverse natural resources.
The Arizona Senate will hear the bill one last time to determine if off-highway vehicle legislation will be passed this year. This will be the last opportunity for people to contact their senators and ask them to continue to support HB 2443.
To locate and contact individual senators, visit azleg.gov/memberroster.
To read the full text of HB 2443, visit the Arizona State Legislature Web site at azleg.gov/bills.



Why support the off-highway vehicle user bill?
HB 2443 Off-Highway Vehicles
Arizona offers year-round recreation opportunities for the many off-highway vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts who live in or visit our great state’s beautiful landscapes. As the state’s population keeps rapidly growing, more and more people are using off-highway vehicles as part of their outdoor experience. Unfortunately, this has placed increased demands on off-highway vehicle use areas and trails, and can have serious impacts on Arizona’s natural resources.
The tic rise in off-highway vehicle use has created a need for trail and facility maintenance and development, signage, education, law enforcement, and wildlife habitat mitigation and protection. While the use of off-highway vehicles has skyrocketed 350 percent since 1998, funding for off-highway vehicle management has only gone up 31 percent. House Bill 2443 would help enhance and protect both riding opportunities and natural resources into the future.

The popularity of off-highway vehicle use has tically increased in recent years, with:
  • A 350-percent rise in registered or titled all-terrain vehicles and all-terrain cycles since 1998.
  • More than 1.7 million Arizona residents, or 29 percent of the state’s population, participating in some form of OHV recreation.
  • An increase in OHV use expected due to Arizona’s rapidly growing population.
For more information about HB 2443, “Off-highway Vehicle User Fee,” contact Tony Guiles of the Arizona Game and Fish Department at aguiles@azgfd.gov.

sorry Steveo, I assumed you needed a mirror....You don't


you have to register the vehicle so it states the equipment you need to register.
1. one working brake that can operated by hand or foot
2. a brake light
3. a second rear reflector if not part of the brake light
4. at least one headlight and not more then two that can see 500 feet down a road.
5. a licence plat affixed securly to the rear of the vehicle.


thats it. sorry for leading you astray

Maybe you need to add a cigarette lighter and ashtray too.

Thats cool they might do that. Be kinda neat seeing some guy driving his Blaster down the street showing a holster with a big ol' Desert Eagle.

its not a "might do it", they already have some of the laws in place now. the stuff I posted is the current law. the cost is prohibitive to some at $135.00 per quad per year as of now. when they get it ironed out it will be much cheaper.

Yesterday I made up a letter and emailed this link to the Arizona legislation to a bunch of michigan senators and explained to them the reason that Arizona's ORV program is growing is because they are loosing folks from here. I hope they make an effort to rectify the problem.

Good work!

Probably falling on deaf ears though. I am sure they will just listen to the DNR & DEQ(unfortunately not DQ! Yum!).

Let us know if you hear anything back.
