ATV /ORV Use
Expansion of By-law Regarding ATV and ORV Use on Certain Municipal Roads in the Township of Oro-Medonte
Beginning on August 7, 2018, an amended by-law to expand permission for all-terrain (ATV), and recreational off-road vehicles (ORV) to travel on select roads within the Township will be in effect on a trial basis.
Safety, minimizing the impact to the community, and environmental sensitivity were key considerations for Council while contemplating all aspects of the by-law. This is the primary reason for the trial basis.
Drivers are reminded that operation of ATV and ORV vehicles must be operated and equipped in accordance with Ontario Regulation 316/03 and the Highway Traffic Act. The maximum speed permitted is 20 km/h on roads that are posted less than 50 km/h, and a maximum speed of 50 km/h on roads that are posted greater than 50 km/h.
ATV and ORV operators may drive their vehicles between the hours of 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on select roads within the Township. Please see below for detailed map defining permitted roads.
