Gov. Snyder signs laws expanding off-road vehicle use

(AREA) -- All 83 Michigan counties can allow off-road recreation vehicles on road shoulders under legislation signed by Gov. Rick Snyder. Current law lets eight counties in the Lower Peninsula and every county in Upper Peninsula authorize the vehicles on local road shoulders. Laws signed Wednesday allow off-road vehicles on more roads if municipalities pass an ordinance. Local governments can ask the state transportation department for permission to allow off-road vehicles on highway shoulders, not including interstates. One law will expand off-road vehicle uses not requiring a license. Snyder says the laws will boost tourism by making it easier to enjoy off-road vehicles.
