Shamokin allows ATVs and other OHVs ride on the streets of the city – but it is retricted

The current ordinance allows OHVs to ride on the streets on Fridays, Saturdays and/or Sundays from 9am until 30 minutes before dusk. Each vehicle must be insured and have a valid DCNR license as well as be wearing helmets. There is a zone indicated by the DCNR arrows that allow OHVs to ride within that perimeter. Although we are working on better signage, some vehicles do get lost and wander outside of that area. If you see them, help them! But vehicles in Coal Township or in the Bunker Hill section or other areas not within the approved zone are probably not from the AOAA.
