Street-legal all-terrain vehicles would be allowed on Salt Lake County streets under a bill that earned the preliminary approval of the Utah Senate on Tuesday.
Senators voted 19-6 for HB82, which repeals an existing exemption for Salt Lake County in the state's ATV law. Under the bill, street-legal ATVs would be allowed on all Utah roads with a posted speed limit below 50 mph.
"They're legal to be driven in every county in the state except Salt Lake County," said Sen. Lincoln Filmore, R-South Jordan. "This would bring Salt Lake County up to the same standards as every other county in the state."
