Ted Jackson 5/8/22 10:17 AM Please vote yes on 2022-35. I am 64 years old and aging with mobility challenges. Street Legal ATV/UTV's is a economical alternative to visit our natural setting weather it be fishing, access to approved primitive DNR roads and trails, or a quick run to the grocery store and dinning. By connecting rural towns it will also give folks like myself the option of overnight stays.
Jeff Merryman 5/23/22 8:19 PM Please vote Yes on 2022-35. I feel that ATVs are discriminated against why I'm not too sure because they paid the same gas tax as any other vehicle and in a lot of cases they are safer than their two wheel counterparts. This day and age I feel we have more things to worry about than keeping ATVs and utvs off the roadways.
