ATV Law Aims to Help NJ Cops and First Responders

Until now, not all law enforcement officials, first responders or public employees were allowed to drive all-terrain-vehicles (ATVs) wherever they wanted. Gov. Chris Christie has now signed into law a bill that provides a limited exemption to the state’s ban on the use of ATVs on public roads by anyone other than agents or employees of the state.

The bill is sponsored by Assemblyman John Wisniewski.

“The state’s widespread prohibition on the use of ATVs on public roads has hindered law enforcement, first responders, emergency response personnel and others from effectively and efficiently carrying their responsibilities,” said Wisniewski. “With the Governor signing my bill into law, these men and women will now be able to better serve the public.”

Concerns were raised earlier this year in response to the ability, and sometimes inability of law enforcement, first responders, emergency response personnel and others to access difficult terrain in the course of their work under existing state restrictions. That prompted Wisniewski to introduce his legislation.

“This new law represents simple, common sense,” said Wisniewski. “By providing this flexibility to the men and women who serve the public on the local level, we will improve public safety for all.”
