  Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 1 of section 2281 of the vehi-
cle and traffic law, as amended by chapter 319 of the laws of  1997,  is
amended to read as follows:
  (a)  "All  terrain  vehicle" or "ATV" means any self-propelled vehicle
which is manufactured for sale for operation  primarily  on  off-highway
trails  or  off-highway  competitions  and only incidentally operated on
public highways [providing that such vehicle does]. A  "CLASS  ONE  ATV"
MAY  not  exceed  seventy  inches  in  width, or one thousand pounds dry
weight.  A "CLASS TWO ATV" MAY NOT EXCEED SEVENTY INCHES  IN  WIDTH  AND
SHALL EXCEED ONE THOUSAND POUNDS DRY WEIGHT BUT MAY NOT EXCEED ONE THOU-
SAND EIGHT HUNDRED POUNDS DRY WEIGHT. Provided, however, this definition
shall  not include a "snowmobile" or other self-propelled vehicles manu-
factured for off-highway use exclusively designed for travel on snow  or
ice, steered by skis or runners and supported in whole or in part by one
or more skis, belts or cleats which utilize an endless belt tread.
  § 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after
it  shall have become a law; and provided, further, that effective imme-
diately, the addition, amendment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation
necessary for the implementation of this act on its  effective  date  is
authorized to be made and completed on or before such effective date.
