An all-terrain vehicle being driven illegally on a public road.

ATV Riding Restrictions

With summer in full-swing and young people out of school, Sheriff James Pohlmann reminds St. Bernard Parish residents that 4-wheel all-terrain vehicles can’t legally be driven on public highways or streets and are built and intended only for off-road use. The Sheriff’s Office has been responding to complaints about ATV drivers riding not only illegally on streets and highways but also illegally on private property and levee systems, the sheriff said. Citations are being issued when riders are found by sheriff’s deputies, sometimes thanks to specific complaints of residents who saw four- heelers being driven illegally, but also the ATVs are impounded when the rider can’t present proof of ownership.
