DMV To Meet With ATV Owners March 15 in Baker DMV recently gave notice to owners of All Terrain Ve- hicles with passenger license plates that their license plates are being cancelled. Under Oregon law, the ATVs should not have been issued license plates, therefore DMV is is- suing refunds for registration fees paid to the state. DMV has scheduled meet- ings with area officials and those affected by this action to discuss their concerns. A meeting is scheduled for March 15th in Baker City at the Baker City School Dis- trict Office, North Conference Room, 090 4th Street. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. "We know that, locally, this is an important issue," said Lorna Youngs, ODOT deputy director for DMV. "That's why we're holding these meetings, to explain our action and an- swer whatever questions people have." Under current Oregon law, ATVs do not qualify as pas- senger vehicles and do not meet federal passenger ve- ffO ANTS TO A blILLIONAIRE (HALFWAY STYLE } We'll play every Saturday Night at 9:00p.m. Watch for more details! ,4h-o s a,r ' iZ-- Wild Bxll's wxll have Pre-printed Halfway Scenes $12.00 ea Customized l ictures $13.00 We'll t ke your picture-- elk, fish, dog, c, t, chxldren, whatever you desire --ctnd put it on ct T-shirt[ _:~ -- ~: .....

Some own- ers stated they had modified their ATVs to meet passen- ger vehicle equipment re- quirements, and DMVissued passenger plates to those owners based on those claims. DMV research indicated, however, that ATVs could not be modified to meet appro- priate standards for passen- ger vehicles, and the state should not issue passenger plates to them. Also, issuing passenger plates did not give Owners the authority to oper- ate ATVs on highways. Un- der Oregon law, an ATV is prohibited from being oper- ated on the highway, except in some very limited situa- tions. The law applies to all ATVs, even those with pas- senger plates. As a result, DMVis no longer issuing passenger registra- tions for ATVs, and cancelling those already issued. Approxi- mately 1,200 ATV owners are affected by this action. Many of the Oregonians impacted by this action are farmers and ranchers, who" drive their ATVs on the roads as they travel from field to field during the course of a day's work. DMV is exploring with local officials and legisla- tors to determine if there are any alternatives for those who are affected by this action. As of January 1, 2000, the ATV permit program became the responsibility of the Or- egon Parks and Recreation Department. OPRD issues operating permits or decals for ATVs, which allow the ATVs to be operated within designated areas. This action affects Class I ATVs, which are defined as: motorized vehicles that are less than 50 inches wide, weigh 800 pounds or less, travel on three or more low- pressure tires, have a saddle seat for the operator, and are designed for travel ever a variety of terrain.
