Safe ATV & Dirt Bike Operation


The Town of Torbay is continuing to work closely with our Commissionaires Municipal Enforcement and Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) on the issue of improper and illegal operation of ATVs and dirt bikes in our Town.

The Commissionairs are monitoring our municipal roads and RNC are using dual purpose motorcycles to patrol our trails to issue tickets and ensure the safe operation of these vehicles.

Recent studies in the United States, Alberta and Ontario all point to a shocking statistic. Close to 25% of ATV related fatalities involve children under the age of 16.

We urge parents of children using these vehicles in Torbay to have a safety conversation with their loved ones to ensure these statistics don’t increase.

Enjoy your ATV/dirt bike use, be respectful of road traffic laws, private property, always wear a helmet and be SAFE.
