My atv is outfitted with a snow plow blade, slow moving vehicle sign, flashing amber lights visible in all directions, proper licencing, ownership, insurance an I wear a Dot approved helmet with the chin strap done up. Any help would be appreciated. Would my ATV be considered a snow removal vehicle so I have the same right as tractors ect that run up and down the road for the purpose of snow removal. In addition to this with the plow attatched I cannot travel more than 25 km/h.
any help would greatly appreciated as I cannot find a definition any where in HTA for definition of a snow removal vehicle.
Former Ontario Police Officer. Advice will become less relevant as the time goes by !
2. (1) This Act does not apply in respect of off-road vehicles being operated on a highway.
Therefore, do not go to the ORVA, go to the Highway Traffic Act
Did you get a ticket or are you just doing research so you don't get one? There seems to be no exemption for an ATV for doing snow removal...You surely seem to be doing things right: lights, helmet, licencing and such.
I have never heard of a cop giving a ticket for that...I see people all over doing it without being bothered...
ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Å“firefighterÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â means a fire chief and any other person employed in, or appointed to, a fire department and assigned to undertake fire protection services, and includes a volunteer firefighter; (ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Å“pompierÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â)
so I am a firefighter. HTA says:
HTA part II , 2 (b) as permitted by part IV
par IV exemptions 25 (c) a fire fighter as defined in the Fire Prevention Act, 1997
So with the definition of a firefighter doe it mean I have to be carrying out fire dept duties? what is your take?
