Inuvik ATV Safety & Enforcement Notice

Posted on Wednesday September 13, 2023

Inuvik ATV Safety & Enforcement Notice - Letter from the Mayor

September 13, 2023

There has been an increase in the number of All Terrain Vehicles (ATV’S) being operated illegally within the Town of Inuvik. A large number of ATV’s are being operated on Town streets without license plates, insurance and without helmets. In some cases they are being operated by minors.
To address this issue effectively, we are taking the following steps:

1. Awareness Campaign: We will launch a comprehensive awareness campaign to
educate the public about the importance of responsible ATV use, the applicable
regulations, and the consequences of illegal operation.

2. Increased Enforcement: Local authorities will be increasing patrols and monitoring of
ATV activities to enforce existing regulations. Those found operating ATVs unlawfully
will face penalties up to and including impounding the ATV.

3. Community Engagement: We encourage community members to report any illegal
ATV activities they witness. We rely on your vigilance to help maintain safety within
our town.

4. Support for Safe Riding: We will work to provide resources and information to
support responsible ATV riders, including safety courses and information on
designated riding areas.

We understand that ATV riding is a popular recreational activity, but it is essential to strike a balance between enjoying this pastime and respecting the safety of our community members. Please join us in this effort to ensure that Inuvik remains a safe place for generations to come.

Mayor Clarence Wood
