OHV Update from the Sheriff

  

The Sheriff’s Office has received many questions regarding where OHVs are allowed or not allowed to operate. This confusion has increased with the questions of how law enforcement will enforce OHV laws in regards to the apparent contradiction between the court ruling of Judge Patrick and the ruling made by Judge Yoder. The Hinsdale Sheriff’s Office has been working with the 7th Judicial District Attorney as well as all of the other Sheriff’s and Colorado State Patrol to bring consistency in OHV enforcement across the 7th Judicial District.


Current OHV regulations for Hinsdale County allows OHVs to be operated on all county roads while complying with Hinsdale County Ordinance NO. 1, Series 2018


Current OHV regulations for the Town of Lake City allows OHVs to be operated on all county roads while complying with Town of Lake City Ordinance NO. 2017-02.


Current State law prohibits OHVs from operating on state highways. However, OHVs may cross the highway, and are permitted to operate between County Road 30 and 2nd street along Highway 149. CRS 33-14.5-108..
