A REMINDER ABOUT OFF-HIGHWAY VEHICLE USE DURING HOLIDAY WEEK

With the long Thanksgiving holiday coming up, many residents and visitors will be out riding their off-highway vehicles in the desert. Sheriff’s Safety Specialist Anita Baker has these reminders for off-highway enthusiasts…
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, Morongo Basin Station, would like to remind OHV enthusiasts of some safety laws regarding OHV use in the Morongo Basin. Off-road rules apply to all vehicles driven on public lands legally open to vehicle use. Public lands include fire trails, service roads, and other rough graded trails and roads. Rules and laws which apply to regular road use are the same for off-road use. Helmets are required when riding a motorcycle or ATV or a recreational off-highway vehicle with an engine of 1000 cc or less. When riding a motorcycle or ATV, riders cannot carry a passenger. When operated at night, vehicles must have a headlamp that reveals objects at 200 feet. Vehicles must be equipped with operational brakes, operational pollution control devices, an adequate muffler, and spark arrestor.
