Parents got ticket after three young people stopped to drive off-road vehicles

Police issued three tickets to parents of youths who were stopped to operate off-road vehicles.

The Twillingate RCMP stopped two dirt bikes running on the motorway between Summerford and Cottlesville, traveling at 50km / h last week. The parents of the 11-year-old and 14-year-old were issued tickets to allow the youngster to operate an off-road vehicle without supervision.

About half an hour later, the same officer stopped another dirt bike on Main Street in Summerford, traveling at 76 mph. A parent of the young teenager also received a ticket.

The RCMP reminds parents that under the Off-Road Vehicles Act, operators under 16 must be supervised by a licensed driver who is at least 18 years old and must be seen at all times to provide immediate guidance to the operator.
