NH state, local agencies team up for off-road safety

Posted: Updated:

LANCASTER, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire's expanded trail system has brought with it more Off-Highway Recreational Vehicle riders - and a greater need for patrolling the paths.

State Fish and Game Lt. Wayne Saunders said the influx of the vehicles on the trials, which include portions of state highways and town roads, has caused a major strain on law enforcement agencies. The agencies are trying to pool their resources to keep riders safe and address land owner concerns.

Fish and Game Department officers provided OHRV law updates and rider training for law enforcement agencies across Coos County.

The county sheriff department is patrolling throughout the county with its recently purchased side-by-side Utility Task Vehicle.
