The City of Chestermere is excited to announce the launch of our new pilot program regarding Off-Highway Vehicles.
- The City will begin allowing OHV use on public roads as a "pilot program" and will operate 3 Lake Access Points, located at John Peake Boat Launch, Sunset Beach and Anniversary Park.
- The "pilot" will begin when the Parks Department opens the Access Points, once the ice is safe enough for OHV use is determined, and the Pilot will end when it is determined the
ice surface is no longer safe and the Access Points are closed.
- In order to operate an OHV on a public road or ice surface, the vehicle must have the following:
a. Valid Insurance
b. Valid registration and clearly visible license plate
c. Operational headlight, taillight, brake light and muffler
- Helmets use is mandatory unless they are not required under provincial regulation
- OHVs are restricted to roadways with a speed limit of 60kmph or less
- OHVs cannot operate in the City between 10:00pm and 8:00am daily
- OHV operators must hold a valid driver's license, and any operator with a Class 7 (Learner's license), cannot operate a vehicle with over 50cc and must be accompanied by an adult holding an unrestricted driver's license
- OHV are strictly prohibited from operating on pathways, school fields, playgrounds and recreational open space
- All OHV operators must adhere to all provincial and municipal traffic laws and statutes
This program is a pilot and may be canceled by the City at any time.
