Bylaw Services Weekly Update: Jan. 30-Feb. 5, 2017

(Fort McMurray, AB – January 27, 2017) – Did you know that you can be fined for improper use of Off-Highway Vehicles (OHV)? Violators can be penalized for dangerous operation or operating OHVs where use is prohibited. Penalties can vary from monetary infractions to the towing or seizure of your vehicle. 

OHV riders are expected to follow laws and regulations the same as other motorized vehicle drivers; laws are in place to protect the safety of everyone. It is the responsibility of the operator to educate themselves on all appropriate laws as well as obey all posted signs and barriers and stay on designated trails. 

For OHV related complaints contact Wood Buffalo Municipal Law Enforcement at 780-788-4200 (between 6 a.m.- 9 p.m.) or Wood Buffalo RCMP at 780-788-4000.
