May 1: That’s when a new regulation prescribing age-appropriate recreational off-road vehicles for those under the age of 16 and establishing a class of closed courses for recreational use for those under 14 will take effect. The new regulation sets the specifications for recreational off-road vehicles (all-terrain vehicles, motorized snow vehicles and recreational-use dirt bikes) that may be driven by a person who is:
- 14 or 15 years old
- 12 or 13 years old
- Between six and 11 years old.
