New seatbelt and helmet regs in Oregon
This will be for the younger crowd and will affect some of us I think. Depending on clarification.

More info probably at the Oregon State meeting.

This will be a topic at the meeting from Ron and Mike.

Probably need to have Chris address it from the BLM and USFS standpoint as well, but doubt there is much room to wiggle there, and how it will play out with what Arlene is working on with BLM.

As per Ron at the state meeting:

Any one under 16 must wear seatbelt/harness when off highway if the vehicle has such provisions either as manufactured or added later.

Any one under 18 must wear a helmet with chin strap fastened when in any class of OHV and off highway. Exception: highway licensed class II vehicle (over 50 inch width and/or over 800 lb dry weight.

If you have under 18 in your sand rail, non-street licensed rock buggie, side by side, etc., they have to have the helmet.
