ATV Rules and Regulations

I live in an area where they are trying to force all outdoor enthusiasts hunters and fisherman into extinction. In order for me to use my ATV for hunting and fishing I must pay a trail fee of 40 dollars even if I don't intend to use the trail. I also must pay a 11 dollar registration fee, I have to have insurance and I must wear a helmet.

I am at an age where it is getting time to tell all levels of government to kiss my !!!!!!! and give up all my outdoor activities.

But then they just win....can't you fight back? Not knowing where you live, I don't know the politics, but can't you work the system to fight the bureaucracy?

If you give up your outdoor activities what will you do?

ATV Rules and Regulations

You are right on in Nova Scotia. They want people to stay and every day they are driving them away with all the new rules and regulations. I also own a boat 14ft that I don't use too much from say Sept. to May but I still have to buy a license for a year. What a rip. Now they want the wheels to come off utility and boat trailers for the annual inspection. Hello!!! What are they inspecting? Someone should tell those twits there are no brakes on utility or small boat trailers.

I am about ready to say goodbye to this tax grabbing province.

And there is no way to fight back because all the governments see is the tax dollars and the votes.

I got a buddy from Ontario and he took his utility trailer down here. Ontario trailers have NO EXPIRY and do not have to be Inspected. However it is kept in perfect shape.
Just wait until your Hunter Safety card expires(the old one had no expiration date) just to name a few things the province has planned.
Now that I tracked you to Nova Scotia, I'll have to figure out the county.. I'm in Pictou County.....................

I believe the helmet is a good thing and so is insurance, other than the absurd rates they charge, but I'm in agreement with you on sticking everyone with a fee for driving on trails. Around here, the snowmobile clubs took over trails that us older folk cut out and have used for decades. Now they want us to buy trail permits. However enough people lobbied the gov't and if you can show that your intent on using the trail is for hunting or fishing purposes, then no permit is required.
You gotta fight back if you expect to be heard and that means attending meetings when these trail thieves go to local councils or gov't for more priviledges.

I have already been through the hunter safety thing. When mine expired about a year ago I told them I wasn't going to renew because some people had their names randomly selected and they received a card free of charge. Well when I told them this all hell broke loose. They threatened to come and confiscate my guns charge me for having unregistered guns the whole nine yards. I finally had to give in and jump through a bunch of hoops but I finally received a new licence. But guess what there is no longer jus a possession liscense. Now you have to have an acquisition liscense even if you don't intend to buy a gun. What a rip. These ATV rules really piss me off. I want to tell all the trail drivers where to go. Let thme pay for their own trails and leave me alone.

I am sorry I can't agree with the helmet or the insurance scam and that is what they are scams to make money. There are more people injured every year falling in bathtubs so why don't they make us wear helmets for that.

What is the sense of being in an accident with a helmet on if the rest of your body is totally wasted and you end up in a wheel chair. I would rather die then spend the rest of my life as an invalid.

If they want control on ATV's why don't they make the manufacturers put governors on them so they won't go so fast. Who needs to drive 50 miles an hour on a woods road. This is the argument that should be put to the government.

I have rarerly driven my ATV over 30 KM's an hour and that is plenty fast when you are in the woods.

Yes you have to have the bike registered and pay this infrastructure fee, unless you just operate the bike on your own property and then it doesn't have to be registered. This is what I am going to do stay on my own property and then they can kiss my !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
