UTVs Permitted On City Streets With Amended Ordinance

UTVs Permitted On City Streets With Amended Ordinance

In 2012, Rising Sun City Council passed an ordinance permitting the use of motorized carts (golf carts) on city streets.  That ordinance was recently amended to include the use of recreational off-highway vehicles also known as "UTVs" (as referenced going forward) and/or "side-by-sides". 

UTVs may be operated on Rising Sun city streets providing the operator has a valid driver's licence, the UTV has been insured and it has been registered with the State of Indiana. 

Unlike golf carts (motorized carts), no inspection is needed by the police department nor is a sticker and registration fee with the city required.
