CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- Despite residents' complaints about noise, dust and safety, the Cedar City Council approved an ordinance last night allowing off-highway vehicles on some city streets.
Cedar City Police Chief Bob Allinson promised guidelines in the new law will be strictly enforced.
Those include an age limit no younger than 12 years old, direct adult supervision of young riders and the ATVs are only allowed on designated routes.
The ordinance is designed to provide direct routes to three ATV hot spots: Three Peaks Recreation Area near Enoch, Summit Mountain Road and Kolob Mountain Road.
In order to get to those parks riders can use parts of state Routes 56, 130, 14 and 289.
The law goes into effect in 30 days.
