Utility Terrain Vehicles (Monitor) – Failed 

CS/SB 440 (Wright) authorizes a utility terrain vehicle (UTV) to legally operate on two-lane county roads and two-lane municipal streets in which the posted speed limit is less than 55 miles per hour. The bill allows a local government to enact an ordinance regulating UTV operation and equipment that is more restrictive than statutory requirements. A local government can prohibit the operation of a UTV on any road under its jurisdiction if the governing body determines that such prohibition is necessary in the interest of safety. (Branch)
