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.
