I have to wonder has anyone got a fine for the NEW OHV law in Ma? Some people say you need the NEW OHV sticker.
I say no it does not apply as long as we are on a unmaintanied road.and not
on a trail. But forget that Has anyone gotton a fine for this speak up!
Every time I read up on this subject, I go in round and round in circles and come up with the same conclusion. I'm not spending money on stickers (two stickers as they're supposed to be visible on both left and right side of OHV) for a vehicle I have legally registered.
According the the law, if you drive on someone's lawn to go to a barbeque or party you ought to have the sticker. After all, you're diving on someone else's property with a OHV.
If I get ticketed, MA will loose out on my my cash that I spend in the state when I wheel there. The people who will loose out are the small businesses like Deli's, Gas Stations, Motels, & Auto Parts Stores. I can't tell you how much I've spent to keep the economy rolling in those places over the years.

I bet the overwhelming majority of guys from MA on here don't even know they are supposed to have a sticker.
^What he said... I didn't even know what an OHV sticker was until I googled at after reading this...

I read some where someone said what about race cars? The state of mass does not know what to do with us so they try to lump us in with ATV's.
If you go to one of DCR's websites they talk about Boats and Atv's.
