OHV

OHV USE

As a result of changes in both provincial and insurance regulations and recommendations over the past two years, starting in 2021 a permit will be required to operate an off-road vehicle (OVH, ATV, Quad, Golf Cart, etc.) anywhere on RIS property. Permits will be available annually or per event. They must be clearly displayed at all times while the unit is being operated on RIS property. This is an alternative to banning OHV use at RIS altogether; we appreciate your cooperation.

The following terms of use are governed by track officials, law enforcement, and government regulatory bodies and are subject to change without notice. Riverside International Speedway (RIS) reserves the right to amend or implement terms at any time. Failure to comply may result in legal penalties, ejection from the premises, forfeiture of fees, and being denied future access. RIS is not responsible for personal injuries or damage and/or loss to/of vehicles, RV’s, tents, or other personal property on RIS grounds; use at your own risk.

OHV Terms of Use & Permit Application

Applies to golf carts, off-road motorcycles, off-road vehicles, ATVs, RUVs, ROVs, UTVs, OHVs and any other motorized vehicle being operated on RIS owned/managed property.

RIS OHV Permit: A current OHV Permit is required at all times for operating an OHV-type vehicle (see above for description) on RIS-owned/managed property. The permit must be clearly displayed at all times while operating the vehicle on RIS-owned/managed property. The permit is non-transferable and valid for events only, starting 48-hours prior to the start and ending 12-hours after its conclusion. Permit fees are $25.00/event, $40.00/season.

Speed: The maximum speed limit is 8 kph/5 mph.

Hours of Operation: No motorized traffic between midnight and 8 a.m.

Helmets: With the exception of golf carts, drivers and passengers of all other OHV’s must wear a motorized vehicle helmet that meets one of these standards: DOT, SNELL, BSI, CSA.

Driver/Operator: The driver/operator must be at least 16 years of age, have a valid driver’s license, and be insured to operate the unit.

Passengers: The number of passengers must not exceed the seating capacity of the vehicle.

Registration/License Plate: With the exception of golf carts, you must have a registration plate clearly visible on the back, clean, and displayed horizontally.

Liability/Insurance: You must have third-party liability insurance, minimum $500,000.00, for every OHV operated on RIS-owned/managed property and your insurance must cover third-party liability. You and your passenger/s assume all risks that relate to owning, driving, and riding the OHV on RIS-owned/managed property. Third-party liability insurance for golf carts is not presently available in Nova Scotia; should that change or if it is available where you reside, it will be required. Proof of insurance may be requested at any time while on RIS property; if not available the unit will be parked.

Impaired Driving: The same laws apply to RIS property as driving on the street; PLEASE do not operate your vehicle if you have consumed any substance which may cause impairment.

OHV terms of use will be strictly enforced and are subject to change at all times.
