(1) The operation of an ATV, as defined in s. 317.0003, upon the public roads or streets of this state is prohibited, except that an ATV
may be operated during the daytime on an unpaved roadway where the posted speed limit
is less than 35 miles per hour.
(2) A county is exempt from this section if the governing body of the county, by majority
vote, following a noticed public hearing, votes to exempt the county from this section. Alternatively, a county may, by majority vote after such a hearing, designate certain
unpaved roadways where an ATV may be operated during the daytime as long as each such
designated roadway has a posted speed limit of less than 35 miles per hour and is
appropriately marked to indicate permissible ATV use.
(3) Any ATV operation that is permitted under subsection (1) or subsection (2) may
be undertaken only by a licensed driver or a minor who is under the direct supervision
of a licensed driver. The operator must provide proof of ownership under chapter 317 upon the request
of a law enforcement officer.
