With the days longer we like to use our ATV’s and enjoy the benefits of Summer. Ashdown Arkansas Police Department has a few reminders for all ATV users.  We included an ATV “Safety Video” for reference.



THE ASHDOWN POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS RECEIVED NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS ABOUT ATV’S ON CITY STREETS AND DESTROYING PRIVATE PROPERTY. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING, STARTING TODAY EVERY ATV ON A CITY STREET WILL BE TOWED AND THE OPERATORS WILL BE ISSUED CITATIONS, IF THE OPERATOR IS A JUVENILE THE PARENT COULD ALSO BE ISSUED A CITATION FOR PERMITTING AN UNAUTHORIZED DRIVER. ANY PERSON REGARDLESS OF AGE WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE SAME CITATIONS FOR OPERATING AN ATV ON A PUBLIC ROADWAY.
THE POLICE DEPARTMENT RECEIVES COMPLAINTS DAILY ABOUT THIS ISSUE AND IT IS A VIOLATION OF STATE LAW TO OPERATE ATV’S ON A PUBLIC ROADWAY.
PARENTS, PLEASE HELP US RESOLVE THIS ISSUE WITHOUT US HAVING TO ISSUE CITATIONS TO DO SO.
PLEASE SHARE THIS POST SO THAT EVERYONE WILL BE INFORMED.
