Default Riding on the road?

In New York State is it legal to ride on the road if your quad is registered so you can get to a trail?

If u registered it.It legal fo ru to go on state property and go to atv trail.like modena,newpaltz.And u can only cross the road by pushing it leagaly.But who wants to push it screw that,just cross the road.its only 10 ft wide.But if u make ur quad street legal, then maybe u can but im not sure since i never tried to make my quad street legal.Got to ask motor veichels.And i never registered my quad.I just drive down the road as fast as i can but try not to make alot of noise.Watch out fo rthe popo's

But look on the bright side.When it snows at least 3-5in of snow you could drive on the road leagaly.Exspecaily on state emerngency.LIKe last winter in snowed like 3ft of heavy snow.You could drive an unregestered veichle on the road.but have to have a licence.To be on the safe side.Cops dont care at all. and if they did see u they would even think about chasing u if u had a fast quad unless it a little quad.

I don't belive this, since I knew a kid who got a ticket for riding his sled with 8+inchs of snow.(in NY)

It is NOT legal to ride on state in new york. When there is snow on the road your still on the road, it doesnt matter how much snow is on the damn road. Go to the motor vechile and get the laws and then you'll be sure.[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/img]
Dashti2k3 what part of NY are you in? I went to an atv drag at a fair and i think it was a quadzilla that was kicking everyones a$$ by like 5 quad lenghts +[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif[/img]

in pennsylvania it is legal to cross roads and to ride on the berm for short distances when trail riding if u have your quad registered and insured thru the DCNR (department of conservation and natural resources) with a liscense plate on the back of your quad, also your allowed to ride on roads when the state declares a state of emergency, but i'm not sure about other states.

I had an experience with a cop once.I was at a stop light just down the hill from my house in town when a cop made a turn in the road i was in.I stood there a the red light with the engine running. the cop had the window down a litle for some reason maybe smoking, and he drove right past me.And this was in the afternoon when there was light out.
