BILL NUMBER:S3318 REVISED 05/27/11 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the definition of an all terrain vehicle or "ATV" PURPOSE: This bill raises the defined weight of an "ATV" to 1,500 pounds of dry weight to allow certain "urv's" to be registered in New York. SUMMARY: Section 1. redefines "all terrain vehicle" in chapter 319 of the vehicle and traffic law by raising the dry weight qualification from 1000 pounds to 1,500 pounds. Section 2. provides this act shall take effect on the 30th day after it shall have become law. JUSTIFICATION: The current vehicle and traffic law defines an all terrain vehicle (ATV) specifically as being no wider than 70 inches and no heavier than 1,000 pounds. With advancements in technology, the world of ATV driving has expanded to create some new vehicles which are sometimes referred to as Utility Vehicles (UTV). UTV's are sometimes heavier than traditional models of ATV's.
