Below are some valuable tips for ATV in New York State
An ATV must be registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) if it is operated anywhere in New York State, including on the owner's property. And for the state of New York, you may not operate any ATV, except on your own property, unless it is covered by liability insurance. Minimum required coverage is $50,000/$100,000 for death, $25,000/$50,000 for injury, and $10,000 for property damage in any one accident. You must show proof of this insurance upon the request of a judge, the police, or a person claiming to have suffered injury or property damage from your operation of the ATV.
Whether you are the operator or passenger, you should wear a helmet when riding an ATV. We recommend that you also wear a face shield or goggles, and protective clothes and footwear.
Your ATV should have the following equipment:
- Brakes in good condition
- A muffler which is in good operating condition and meets federal standards
- A spark arrester approved by the U.S. Forest Service
- Tires with at least 2/32nds of an inch tread without visible breaks, cuts, exposed cords, bumps or bulges
- A lighted white headlight and red taillight if the ATV is driven at night
The law requires you to keep the ATV's headlight and taillight lighted when riding a half hour after sunset to a half hour before sunrise.
