- private property without permission of the owner or occupant of such property, within the boundaries of the Hamlet
- landscaped road right of way (ie. ditch) in the summer months, unless it is designated as a trail in the Bylaw.
No person shall operate an off-highway vehicle anywhere within the municipal boundaries of the Hamlet between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.
No person shall operate an off-highway vehicle within the boundaries of the Hamlet in excess of:
