They use the same excuse they used for how they changed the rules for registering a U-built trailer. Make it harder to register stolen equipment blah blah blah. Just another money grab. And they claim it's going to make things 'safer'. How is having to put a plate on quads and dirtbikes making them safer?

I didn't read through the whole act but I saw on the news that to be on public land they need to have plates. What about public roads? Does this mean everything now has to have turn signals and brake lights?

Just peachy

I would be nice to drive my quad the short distance from my house to stave but I'm sure this won't allow that.

Just another money grab

You'd think with all the shit that gets stolen down there, registering every vehicle would be a good thing? :dontknow:

I agree most of it is BS, but the registration part is good as far as I'm concerned. Everything should be registered anyway so you can prove it's yours if it's stolen, or to help with insurance claims to prove the value and what not.

if it was free would it still be an issue? is it the fact that it has to have a plate for identification purposes and that it has to be registered the real issue. (anyone without a plate will stick out like a sore thumb)

if you only use it on a pvt farm or ranch then this does not apply but if you use it on public land then it affects you if you havnt registered your quad .

don't see an issue with it as it is no different then rideing a dual sport bike with a plate.

don't act like a ass on a quad and you shouldn't have an issue

This Bullshit is just that.


Read the fine print.


We are about to get fucked by the long and hard.

Don't forget to wash your plate off after every mud hole you ride through or you might get a ticket for obstructed plate.

The registration part is the one thing that is totally wrong about this bill. If you already have insurance your insurance company will already have all of your machines details on record so the only thing that the Government registry will be doing is collecting more money for ICBC. I already pay $1300 a year to insure my side by side now I am going to have to pay another $48 (there will be more I guarantee) per year to enjoy my hobby how is that fair? The Government can quite easily access the private insurance companies data base and then issue free plates to those who are already insured but no they just want more cash out our pockets. Also don't forget when this bill goes through then there will be a hell of a lot of families who's children have been riding for years who will no longer be able to go out as a family due to the minimum age restriction that will be put in place on children. I get that they are trying to make it safer and that they are trying to cut down on theft of ORV's but they do have more than enough Police and CO's who should have been policing this 4 years ago when they made third party insurance compulsory but they didn't and now as usual we are all about to get fucked in the ass for it.

I would agree with the plating only if we could ride on streets. Towns in the US allow it, Elkford was (maybe still is?) allowing it. No reason why can't ride to the gas station or down the road to access a logging road.

As far as plates being good, I can't wait until the first wrongly accused atver gets fined for "mud bogging". Guarantee if hikers/bikers see a mud bog and fresh tracks they will copy down the plate numbers of the first quads they see and report them even if it's 5 miles down the road.

Seizure of vehicle and a fine not to exceed $5000 or up to 6 months in imprisonment or both is the maximum
