ATVs / Non-Highway Vehicles

City Council recently passed amendments to current ordinances to strengthen regulations on ATVs and other non-highway vehicles. The revisions to the ordinance state that non-highway vehicles are declared nuisances and reinforced that they are illegal on public streets. These vehicles are now specifically subject to impounding from public and private property, and they must be registered with the City of Rockford. In addition, these amendments make it unlawful to keep or store unregistered non-highway vehicles or non-highway vehicles used in violation of the ordinance, as well as declare it unlawful to fuel non-highway vehicles, or allowed them to be fueled at a gas station unless secured on a trailer or truck bed.
