Minn. - The Minnesota Department of Transportation reminds
all-terrain vehicle (ATV) operators that it is against the
law to ride ATVs in ditches along public roadways in Minnesota's
agricultural zone between April 1 and August 1.
law, which has been in effect since the early 1990s, was
passed to protect wildlife habitat and to prevent erosion.
also reminds the public that freeways such as Interstate
90 and the U.S. Highway 14 bypass in Mankato (where there
are no at-grade intersections) are prohibited from use by
all recreational vehicles year-round.
in partnership with the Department of Natural Resources,
will soon be posting signs along the Highway 14 bypass in
Mankato that remind recreational operators that use is prohibited
in that area.
Fast. Too Close. Too Late.
