Report highlights 3 states' off-road vehicle laws
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Off-road vehicle identification laws in three states are being highlighted by a group pushing for a uniform way to spot illegal riders.
Responsible Trails America released its second annual report Tuesday on the states' requirements. It highlights Arizona, Nevada and Wisconsin for requiring large license plates or decals with contrasting colors and a minimum font size that are easy for authorities to see.
The group says adoption of a model like those states also would help private property owners in rural areas deter trespassers when law enforcement isn't nearby.
The report shows that vehicle identification requirements vary across the country.
Twelve states mandate large, visible plates or decals with a minimum font size. Other states' laws don't address the size of fonts or decals. Thirteen states have no identification requirements.
