Kelly Signs ATV Bill

May 17, 2019


Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly signed a bill this week that will allow all-terrain vehicles (ATV) and work-site utility vehicles (UTV) to cross state and federal highways. Previously, the Kansas Senate unanimously approved SB 63, which also passed by a wide margin in the Kansas House. KLA supports the legislation.

Language in the bill also will allow ATVs and UTVs to be driven on state and federal highways, as long as the highway has a speed limit of 65 miles per hour or slower, the operator has a valid driver’s license and the use is for agricultural purposes only. The ATV or UTV must be driven as near the right side of the road as practical. SB 63 will become law July 1, 2019.

KLA asks ATV and UTV operators taking advantage of the law to operate in a safe and responsible manner.
