Off Highway Vehicles (OHV) are great Summer fun, But if you plan on hitting the trails, The City of Fort Saskatchewan says it is important to ride safetly and follow all the rules currently in place.

“When riding an OHV, you must be at least 14 years of age if riding alone and have valid registration, insurance and a helmet,” Maryjo Webster, Acting Municipal Enforcement Supervisor said. “If you’re riding on the highway you need a operators licence, if you’re riding off the highway you do not need a licence”

“However, operation is permitted with written approval and when loading or unloading an OHV from a trailer or vehicle,” the City stated.
