It's time for some OHV Q&A with us, the Moab City Police Department! I'm Bret Edge, a sergeant assigned to the patrol division, and I'll do my very best to answer any questions you may have about operating an OHV on the streets in Moab.

I've attached a flyer that was produced by the Moab Area Travel Council that should answer the majority of your questions, including required equipment and basic insurance/registration requirements. If you've got a question the flyer doesn't answer, please leave it here and I'll answer it as soon as possible. Please understand that it may take me a few days due to my schedule but I will always respond.

UPDATE (2/5/17): I attached a document that contains several questions that were either emailed to me or asked here in the forum and our responses to those questions.

UPDATE (3/30/18): Utah State Parks updated the Non-Resident Riders Reciprocity Flyer and posted it to their website today. Here's a link: https://stateparks.utah.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/13/2017/12/NonResOHVFlyer2018FIX.pdf

UPDATE (3/30/18): Here is a direct link to Utah State Code 41-6a-1509, Street-legal all-terrain vehicle -- Operation on highways -- Registration and licensing requirements -- Equipment requirements. (Effective 1/1/2018) https://le.utah.gov/xcode/Title41/Chapter6a/41-6a-S1509.html

****ADMINISTRATORS: WOULD YOU MIND MAKING THIS A STICKY TOPIC? IT WILL HELP ME TO STAY ON TOP OF QUESTIONS AND WILL MAKE IT EASIER FOR FORUM MEMBERS TO FIND ANSWERS TO THEIR QUESTIONS.****
All set :)

How about a link to which states are reciprocal. According to the flyer I have all of the required things to be legal in Moab but I'm tagged in Montana. If they aren't reciprocal do I just have to buy the trail sticker or is there something else I have to do? We're headed there over spring break.

Thanks
Dwight

The flyer states that a windshield is required for street legality or eye protection. Polaris manufactures a half windshield.

Would this satisfy the windshield need or would eye protection still be required?

Here's a link on the windshield in question.

A half-windshield does satisfy the equipment requirement.

Thanks for the question, Dwight. I'm working on it and a whole bunch of other questions. I'm working with the OHV coordinator for the state of Utah to answer all of these questions. As soon as I've got responses I'll post all the questions and our answers here on the forum. Stay tuned...

Just to be clear, in AZ turn signals are not required for street legal. Does the reciprocity for this non-requirement carry over?
If you read the flyer he attached, it states that you must comply with Utah law. In the illustration, it shows what Utah law requires, and turn signals are one of the things shown.

First I would like to say thank you for taking time to help us. I have been looking & wanting to plan a trip to Moab. Is there a good site that has a map with campgrounds, trailheads etc?

The Discover Moab website is chock full of information about the area, including campgrounds. other lodging, guide services and some trail information. Here's a link: City of Moab's Official Tourism Website - Get up-to-date vacation planning information from the only official source for the city of Moab.

Heads up! If you're planning to attend the Rally on the Rocks UTV event in Moab this May, please stop by our booth to say "hi". I'll be there along with representatives from the BLM and the state of Utah OHV coordinator. Hope to see you there!
