OHV Regulations

We’ve heard there’s been talk of the OHV laws changing in Lake City. As of today, the laws have not changed.  We appreciate you and look forward to seeing you here in Lake City!  Please contact the chamber at 970-944-2527 for more information.

OHV regulations include:

2. Vehicle operators must have Valid Driver's license in possession.

3. Proof of minimum liability insurance for each vehicle.

4. A helmet is required for riders under 18 years of age unless in a child restraint (a bicycle helmet will NOT suffice)

6. Eye protection for EVERY rider (prescription glasses, sunglasses, goggles, etc.  A vehicle windshield also satisfies this requirement.)
