ATV law run over in rural areas
Placeholder Image
Despite a 2007 ruling from Georgia’s attorney general that addresses the use of all-terrain vehicles on public roads, residents of rural eastern Liberty County say sheriff’s deputies won’t cite ATV users who are violating state law.

Montana’s contention is that not only do operators present a danger to themselves and other drivers, but the vehicles’ intended purpose is being ignored.
