New ATV Restrictions In Pennsylvania Town
April 21, 2014
ATV riders in Upper Saucon Township, Pa., an Allentown suburb, now have new rules they must follow or face hefty fines.
Township supervisors on April 14 approved limits on when and where ATVs can operate.
The law bans ATV use between a half-hour after sunset and 9 a.m. It also requires riders to stay at least 150 feet away from occupied dwellings or buildings unless they have permission from the property owners.
Violators face fines of $100 to $1,000 and could even face up to 30 days in jail if the fine isn’t paid.
