My appointment is mid day Tuesday. I'll let you know if anything interesting happens and what all you'll need when you go.

The lady was already perturbed at the situation, so I didn't ask her any questions about it.

You know for a fact that if more and more people start driving them on public streets they will put a stop to it. Especially after somebody runs over some kid and hurts them.

Just one super bad incident - fella hauled his side by sider from his home town to a family gathering at a park up here at the lake. He let someone else drive it. Another person got in the bed of the ATV. While operating the unit, the driver's cap got blown off. He made a sudden U-turn to fetch it. The rear passenger fell out, hit his head and subsequently died.

The lawsuit was heard in the deceased person's county, half a state away. Named as defendants were the driver and the owner of the unit.

35 mph and under posted roads, law is mainly for residential neighborhood sub divisons, thus the restrictions on mileage area

Per state law if you have ranch or farm you can drive up to 25miles on FM roads with low speed triangle already

No different then a truck bed. Heck most UTV’s now are size of small trucks

Driving a tractor on a FM road is a heck of a lot different than somebody driving a UTV 35 MPH or probably faster in a subdivision.

My tractor will do a lot more damage at 35mph then any utv. I drive my UTV all the time on FM roads legally as it is pre-new law anyway.

But back to new law if you are over 35mph, per law you are speeding. The new law has a 2 mile radius restrictions and it includes Golf carts.

"No different then a truck bed. Heck most UTV’s now are size of small trucks" The difference is lack of adequate liability coverage and especially so on UTVs not financed. The bet here is most side by sides 6 years old and older have little or no liability coverage. Most home insurance policies do provide automatic coverage for ATV incidents which take place on their "initial" residence premises. Drive it out the gate or out of the driveway and that there automatic liability coverage is gone gone. Most people do not operate their side by sides at their primary residence.

I’m talking danger wise, liability is an individual responsibility. Just like how much liability coverage you carry on any vehicle or property.
