A new OHV bylaw came into effect in Alberta Beach on January 13, 2004 which allows the use of off highway vehicles within the Village limits of Alberta Beach on certain locations.

Off highway vehicles are not permitted to travel on 47th Street or on 50th Avenue except to cross them.

RESIDENTS OF ALBERTA BEACH with off highway vehicles may utilize other streets, avenues and alleys to make their way to permitted areas outside the Village limits. Non-residents are restricted to designated trails in the Village. Off highway vehicles are not permitted in the parks or school grounds. All riders of off highway vehicles must wear a helmet, and there cannot be more riders on the vehicle than permitted by the manufacturer. The speed limit for off highway vehicles in the village is 10 km/hr and they are not to be operated between the hours of 11 pm and 8 am.

The Off Highway Vehicle Regulations and the Traffic Safety Act also governs the use of off highway vehicles when in the Village limits as well as outside the Village limits.

Any person found contravening any section of the by-law could face a fine and seizure of the off highway vehicle.

ALL OHV OPERATING OFF THE TRACK MUST HAVE CURRENT REGISTRATION AND INSURANCE AND MUST BE ABLE TO PRODUCE IT ON DEMAND OF A PEACE OFFICER.
