Sheriff proposes tougher ATV rules


GUILDHALL, Vt. — A Vermont sheriff is pushing for tougher all-terrain vehicle ordinances in two towns. Essex County Sheriff Trevor Colby has pitched, to selectmen in Concord and Lunenburg, the idea of speed regulations, prohibiting intentional tire-spinning, and requiring ATVs to be registered for road use. Neither town has an ATV ordinance, but each allows ATVs on public highways. Colby said his office has been getting a lot of complaints about unregistered ATVs speeding and cutting doughnuts. Colby has told the Caledonian Record that he plans to draft proposed ATV ordinances for review by both towns. (AP)
