This is a reminder post about the UTV/Golf Cart Ordinance, now that nice weather is upon us again!
The full text of the ordinance is available HERE. Registration stickers are available, and registrations are taking place. Please contact Matt at the Police Department number, 815-493-6931 to set up a time for the registration process. The process includes a brief inspection at the Police Department, and owners should ensure they have obtained insurance for the vehicle and possess an Illinois Insurance Identification Card that specifically states it is for the non-highway vehicle. Cards that only list automobiles will NOT be accepted.
Once the inspection is complete and all requirements are satisfied per the Code, a numbered registration sticker will be placed on the non-highway vehicle plus a sticker indicating the year it is valid for.
Please read and familiarize yourself with all of the requirements of the Code, paying close attention to where operation of the non-highway vehicles are and are not allowed. Violators of any portion of the Code are subject to be issued a citation, plus a fine, and in more serious cases, the non-highway vehicle will be impounded. Read the rules! If you have any questions, please contact Matt Magill at the Police Department; 815-493-6931.
