See we don't need it cause we drive on a public ways. such as OFR. yes it's unmaintaned but used by the public and not a trail.

Off-Road Vehicle (ORV) Defined

Also known as Off Highway Vehicle (OHV), ORV’s are any motor vehicle designed or modified for use over unimproved terrain if used for recreation or pleasure off a public way and all legally registered motor vehicles when used off a way. Vehicles over 1000 lbs. such as pickup trucks or SUVs are prohibited from all trails at all times.
really officer, this isnt for recreation or pleasure. i thought it was a short cut to get to Main Street. I am just trying to go a faster route

From my understanding (word of mouth through club memebers) is the epo's in massachusetts are going to be targeting this sticker issue. They can ticket you even on public or private land which sucks cause even if you have written permission from the land owner to be there they would still ticket you for not having the sticker.

I can (possibly) see requiring a sticker on public land. Assuming the state actually designated public land for wheeling. IMO, requiring a sticker on private land is a blatant infringement upon private property rights.

I don't see how they are going to enforce it. I did not see a EPO this weekend up at OFR.

Agree with techno 100%.....and if we are liable for the sticker than maybe they should open up some more land

If the state wants my $40 then they can tell me where every cent of that money is going. If The Jeep people don't get any thing out of it ,then I'm not getting a sticker.End of story.

that's what they think, but I say no I have a plate and a sticker on my windshield and that's good enough for me.

Is there any concern running MaBell without having an OHV sticker?

Strictly speaking you are supposed to have sticker since it is not a public way.

Technohead- thank you for the correct answer.

Rich- thank you for the answer to the question I was indirectly getting at.

I believe in the law, I'm a fan of LEOs, and until s**t hits the fan and the apocalypse begins, I'm going to do my best to be an upstanding citizen. All that being said I do believe it's a bit insane that a registered, inspected, insured vehicle is spending extra money to enjoy the amenities that a state offers (which is what our regular taxes go to anyway). It's a JOKE to read these regulations and have Jeeps clumped with boats, snowmobiles, and RVs.

I'm not sure what I'll end up doing, be it buying the sticker or not. Fines suck, but who has actually had a run in with these enforcers of all things woodsy-legislation?

I'll have to make sure we exchange contact information

Club run there is July 21st if anyone else will be there. Only about 8 rigs from our end will be going. I'll post details on how it goes/if we run into anyone.
