Algoma green lights ATVs and UTVs

Just as summer is getting into full swing, the city of Algoma has officially updated their legal transportation methods. ATVs and UTVs can now be driven in city streets with posted speed limits of 35 mph or lower. Drivers must be at least 16 years old and have a valid drivers licence, have liability insurance and drivers born after January 1st of 1988 must finish an ATV safety course. Algoma Police Chief Randy Remiker urges drivers to display awareness. 



Exceptions to the new rule apply as ATV/UTV vehicles aren’t allowed at city parks, Crescent Beach, and the marina. Details of the city’s ATV/UTV ordinance passed by the city council can be found in the Algoma Municipal Code section 44-61.
